Her: wow this is nice

Are you a tiler? The last place we stayed in I had to use the bathroom not the en-suite as the tiling made my teeth itch. I get the rolleyes from my other half too. My mate commented recently that I was the only person he knew who could recognise bad tiling while being too pissed to stand up unaided.

But isn't that your trade or have I got that wrong

I tiled my utility room floor 30 years ago - first time I had ever tiled anything - it annoys me every time I go in there but I learnt a lot as a result that I have applied when I have subsequently done the kitchen (once) and two bathrooms (twice)

If I ever refit the utility room again I'll rip it up and do it again but right now it's functional and most people wouldn't even notice the mistake I made

My house has had its fair share of bodges that I’ve put right over the last couple of years, here’s a few I have just uncovered whilst ripping out my en-suite:

1) Shower riser kit that came with the shower tray was too short so they just shoved a pile of loose planks under each leg.



2) Tiled over the top of tiles (a right pig of a job getting them a off)

3) Shower tray was too small (they needed to fit it without removing tiles so I guess intentional) so they just stuck a length of wood down the side and silicone over it. It’s not even fixed in place or anything!



As a result it bloody stinks underneath and I’m going to replace lots more than I was expecting.

A mate of mine once temporarily plugged a leaking gas pipe with Blu Tack.
