2nd floor laundry install

Just finished a 2nd story laundry. the customer wanted stackable washer dryer in a laundy room on the second floor. We first disconnected old washer dryer in the base ment and capped off all pipes. Now the fun part access to plumbing  was not accessible from shower access panel on 2nd story bathroom where the new washer dryer setup would go. The ceiling of a 1st floor half bath needed to be removed for drain access. We ran 220 line for dryer from basement to 2nd story and installed outlet. Had to run 2 inch pvc washer drain pipe to main stack from new water outlet box on 2nd floor. Tapped into water lines in the ceiling we removed and connected the new drain. We tapped power for washer off a converted switch box. Instead of reinstalling the drywall ceiling that we had removed for pipe access, we installed a cedar with some crown molding and added a bath fan (which is in the pic because I thought it looked different). Now the new front loader washer and dryer are in an unused closet in the 2nd floor bath, which is on the same floor as the bedrooms (saves walk up and down 2 flights of stairs).  I originally quoted 2 days but as always took a week.
