Day 11 - putting up walls

Today was rebuilding day. The wall to the bathroom had to be repaired( read here rebuilt) after the munchy crunchies had their way with it. Thankfully it hadn't been a supporting wall or the roof could have been quite saggy. I know how it would have felt!
It has given the bathroom back it's shape and we can really see how it's going to look. It's amazing what a difference it made taking out the cupboard in the bathroom and replacing it with a shower. Next bug job is to wet seal the bathroom ready for tiling.

Today's Reno tip- if you ate putting in a wall or rebuilding one, think about whether you want to hang or build anything out from that wall. Put in extra noggins in the wall so you can put screws straight in where you want them. That is unless you prefer my method of ten holes for every screw! Noggins are those little bits of wood between the upright bits of wood. That is the technical definition in case you were wondering.
