Most older houses in the villages across Bulgaria built before the 1990s are lacking internal bathrooms and toilets. Before today’s flush toilets were available the place containing the toilet was simply a small shed in the garden consisted containing a pit toilet or similar.
This is an old practice in Bulgaria related to the lack of internal plumbing and piping inside the houses. This is still valid for the older houses in the villages as they have never been renovated to modern standards.
The problem of the “missing” internal bathroom and toilet has to be solved by the new owners of such properties. As usually we recommend to hire a builder for a property survey BEFORE buying such a property. This will help you to have an idea of the total costs of your new enterprise.
It should be noted that making an internal bathroom requires involves different operations like concrete laying, waterproofing, plumbing and piping, re-wiring, tiling and others. We have specialized on house renovations and to build an internal bathroom is a standard job for us. In most cases we are able to give you a free quote so don’t hesitate to contact us.
Here we will show an example of building an internal bathroom.
The room where the bathroom was to be built on was located on the back of the house and it was used for a storage room for gardening tools and also a wood burner for the radiator heating was installed in this room.
