Turn an en-suite back into box room


Postby carly_callon » Wed May 05, 2010 11:26 am

Hi. We live in a house that originally had 3 bedrooms but the box room was turned into an ensuite to the main bedroom. The original doorway on the landing has been plasterboarded over. Is it possible to open this back up and turn the shower room back into a box room? How would I go about doing this? The bathroom is currently fully tiled with a shower cubicle, toilet and sink. Any help greatfully received! :?

carly_callon,
"Is it possible to open this back up and turn the shower room back into a box room" YES
Isolate all water supplies and seal off wastes. Remove boarding from door, board up door to main bedroom, hack off tiles and make good.

Thank you for your reply!

I think it will be almost impossible to hack the tiles off. They look like they're pretty well fixed! I've been advised that I could plasterboard over them? :roll: What do you think?

carly_callon,
Assuming each wall is fully tiled then yes you could board over the tiles.
