Vilgāle apt update: Tiling Bathroom Wall

Updated: 10 January, 2023 seen 18

It has been a while since our latest update from the Vilgāle apartment in Latvia. Back in the Summer, I did flooring work, by installing laminate and tiling the bathroom floor. From the large tasks left, a shower is among the priorities. 

As most of the piping work has been done, the floor has been tiled in the bathroom, it was left to the tile wall on which the shower will stand, install a water boiler, and lastly install the shower itself.

At the start of January 2023, my brother helped me to tile the bathroom wall at our Vilgāle apt, one step closer to a shower

I was looking to tiel the walls myself and already had bought tiles, but feel realy happy somebody else did the job, much professionally than I would do
