    Was 2 weeks late starting this one to be fair.
    Complete rip out, back to block, got it boarded out, ditched the window in the shower area and built them a Jack and Jill alcove (Should have kept my mouth shut as the brief was to just lose the window).
    Finally start tiling (remember I take ages to tile and I feel pressure anyway 'cos I'm aware it's their only bathroom) and she says 'I'm getting worried as all the family are coming to stay at the weekend!!' :coldsweat:
    So had to work all weekend, Bank holiday - 10 and 11 hour days, no time to eat etc..

    Here's how it went anyway

    Slim line white slate effect Mode tray (everything else was Mode too - Victoria plum I believe)
    Tiles from Porcelanosa and the only thing I supplied was the comfort height toilet.

    The tray is very non slip and durable, really resists scratches and staining but the fall is quite shallow on them so puddles up a bit with a lot of water flow - that with the frameless enclosure may make it prone to leak so hopefully my siliconing has done the job.

    They are well chuffed and I can't wait to fit the last bits next week when I do their porch. Got a lovely big bottle of posh Bourbon for my effort to get it done on time.
    Customer's a teacher at my son's primary school (3rd teacher from there I've done now)

    Day rate Marc, though with the 11 hour shifts I'm billing hourly rates.
