It has been a crazy hectic week with Christmas orders to ship and workmen in the house but we survived and are happy with the progress and results so far.
I am very happy to say that this ugly little window is no more!
The reason that it has no glass is that it was a sliding window, so in fact only half of it opened and steam hang around for ages.
Resulting a moldy ceiling and not a very nice showering place. So we had removed the glass part to get some more fresh air in it, as the window was pretty rotten anyway. Of course in Winter this became a problem as it was too cold to shower so we attached a rolling plastic so we could close it while showering. And now it is all gone :)
First we had to empty the bathroom, it is amazing to see all the stuff we people accumulate even in a small space as a bathroom.
And then light! Even in the mess it looks so airy, I also want to point out that the before pictures were taken in August when it is very sunny, and these are taken yesterday and today, much lighter in December.
The new window will arrive in 10 days, we will shower with some plastic before the window but are very happy with how it already looks.
Also the ceiling was scraped and re-plastered, I will paint it later this week with an anti bacterial and anti mold paint, yes we have learned our lesson. The paint will be white again so our bathroom will be as light as a piece of heaven :)
There is more progress going on but I will share them later this month when all is pretty and ready!
