    wet room

    Work started today
    Already not enjoying the upheaval
    Sure it will be worth it though
    Can't wait to have a lovely shower
    Have been given a choice of floor colour
    Gone for a deep pink
    The tiles are white,with a pretty pink and gold border
    Or they will be

    Still waiting for any sign of mine starting, no problem said the nice man who came out, funding is sorted just need to have a quick measure up and off we go .....

    That was 3 weeks ago

    Not surprised to be honest, this has been dragging on for about a year now.

    My initial call was last June
    Along the way i was told three times that start to finish is usually around a year
    All told mine was one year,one month till start,and will be two weeks to finish
    Sounds like you are nearly there now

    I hope all goes well my wet room was finished in four days it all went smoothly.
    Unfortunately my second adaptation is not going so well.I have been waiting over 2 months for a clos-a-mat to be installed the suppliers/installers are useless from the start of the grant application to now has been 17 months.

    The nearest I've come to getting a wet room shower was being told to open the bathroom window when it's raining outside !!!

    They aren't cheap if self funding. I had a quote 12 months ago and I didn't commission the work - it will now cost 15% more due to BREXIC and falling pound!

    A clos-a-mat is a toilet that washes and drys you.

    OT recommended a wet room for us and told us to apply to our local council for a Disabled Facilities Grant which we did and got.The only thing we had to pay for was different tiles because I didn't want the white ones that was going to be put on.They were the samas the council toilets in town.It took 8 days to complete it over 2 weeks.We also had a stair lift fitted on the same grant.
    Please try applying for a grant the worst thay can say is no.We thought we wouldn't get one but we did.
