    i put up with the worlds dagiest laundry for 7 years. Finally it's finished after I was messed around by my old tiler for 6 months to come back and finish the job (after I'd already paid him). Found another to finish it off for me.
    My old laundry did have my hot water system in it but it's now move outside

    Looks good! I've definitely seen worse than the before pic.
    Now the big question - how much did it cost?

    About $2000 which included $500 to move the hot water system.
    Floor tiles $11 sqm, splash back tiles were in my shed when I bought the house 8 years ago, cabinetry about $500 from IKEA. Has a new door and laundry tub too.
    I paid one tiler he did the floors and was supposed to come back to do the skirting and splash back, 7 months of phone calls, texts etc and I gave up and paid another tiler to do the job. Lesson learnt, pay on completion $300 out of pocket. I'd used him before so trusted him.

    That all sounds pretty reasonable.
    Makes a big difference.

    I should go into business finishing jobs of tradies that had been paid before finishing!

    Looks neat! one question..where will the washing machine go? As if you put it under the bench, you won't be able to open it - unless you are planning on a new front loader?

    I did treat myself to a new front loader. I have been a top loader girl forever but am now happily a convert to a front loader.
