    Chippie, I'm not sure from reading your post whether you left the carpet in place or removed it before laying down the new sheet of linoleum. Can we get some clarification on that point?

    Chippie,
    Will the new "lino" slide over the underlay with the weight of the pan bearing down on it? If it will make some rollers out of dowelling from B&Q and put them under the pan. Then although it will be damned hard work, you may be able to slide the "lino" in whilst the pan rides on the rollers.
    I still recommend lifting the pan right out of the room though.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    OT: In the house we bought last hear there's good looking 4" square tile in a bathroom - all nicely laid & grouted. I replaced the vanity & when I pulled the old one out, I discovered that it's laid on 3/4" shag carpet. I have no idea how they got it to lay flat.

    that is feasible Nick slightly impractical though but keep thinking along those lines.

    Felt under old lino as stated was removed along with old lino replaced with new felt and lino.

    Impractical again Nick.


    Incidentally if you all read my posts you should be aware that I am not asking HOW TO DO it as I've done it several times.

    See Nicks comment above and come up with an alternative to that.

    At the moment no Steve.

    But then again there would be no point in posing the question if there was a photo of the "method".

    Pull toilet, as suggested above. Just be very careful when tightening the hold-down bolts, the toilet base can easily be broken under too much force. Use just a smallish open end wrench so you are unable to exert too much torque on the hex nuts. Look at the plastic washers for the snap caps as you tighten the nuts, deformation and/or crushing will indicate over-tightening.

    This stuff toilet gel.jpgturns the water in your toilet bowl to Jell-O. You can pick up the toilet and move it without the mess of bailing. After your repair is complete, just flush it away.

    British karzys are normally just screwed down to the floor with countersunk wood screws.

    Trying desperately to produce one Steven.

    Our neighbours are fed up of us using theirs.

    I am reluctant to remove my photographic equipment from the loo until I am successful.

    Methinks you really don't want this sentence taken out of context!
