Imagine a rectangle approximately 6m by 3m. The final 1.5m of the 6m
"juts out" from the main body of the house. ASCII diagram (use a

Up until recently this was split into two bedrooms of very very
approximately 2.5+m by 3m and 3.5-m by 3m (the wall between was a very
odd shape and also contained a triangular chimney breast). The partition

This rectangle is going to contain two (smaller) bedrooms with a
bathroom between because the existing bathroom (elsewhere) contains no
loo and isn't big enough to add one. With two small children, having

As I see it we have two viable options for the bathroom - we can make it
