Total focus on tiling the bathroom
You may recall that we chose pine, ledge & brace internal doors. They were external doors which I (incorrectly) assumed would be better/stronger/more resilient than internal doors. Wrong. I was warned by my carpenter & my NHBC inspector that there was a chance they would warp. We took a chance but they have warped - some by more than an inch!! Every joinery company I have spoken to since said they knew that would happen! This week we therefore have requested quotes to replace all the doors - 26 ordinary and 7 fire doors! We are awaiting quotes but the total cost will be close to £5,000. We have decided to use Idigbo (an African Tropical forest hard wood know as poor-man's oak).
