Vanity install



Vanity install complete. Customer went from double to single sink. One of the double sinks was not draining correctly. After old vanity removal we know why! The sink drain on the left run goes uphill to the stack! Also the supply lines were ran outside the studs and the original home builders had bumped out the wall two inches to hide them. Nice!
We tore out the 2 inch bump out, removed all the old plumbing, installed a new single drain and the supply lines now come from the side rather than run the length of the back wall. Re drywalled the back, installed new vanity and counter. What should have been a two hour job took 10 hours.

  9. Isn't it fun to find odd things that previous workers did? The best part is you can do stuff for the next worker to find.

  14. That looks like it would be a lot of work. Why would someone want to go from two sinks back down to one? I love double sinks!

  15. there is no real reason to have two sinks unless 2 people are constantly in it using the sink at the same time.

  18. man, 2 hour job to 10 hours. now that is a crazy jump in time. I would rather not have to do that. I need to replace the vanity in my upstairs bathroom, and I am afraid this kind of thing will happen.
