Ladies and Gentlemen, I'd like to introduce JOE THE PLUMBER

Joe makes an excellent plumber... only 5 trips to Lowe's and 3 attempts at the compression fittings and ta-da! We have an almost finished Powder Room. It only took 6 months to get the sink...

Now just imagine Joe laying on the ground socket wrenching the sink in place and me standing over him holding the sink in place and level. I wish someone was there to take a photo, it was quite the scenario.

Behind the scenes... sink arrived and we realized the backerboard behind the painted walls wasn't at the right height (when we threw it in before sheetrock we didn't know what sink we were going to order). so we added the white "trim" behind the sink and made a cabinet to hide the "trim" and get a little storage.

The p-trap drain was at a 45 out of the wall from the previous people... not the best to work with, we should've straightened it out when we had the chance. Then when Joe went to tie in the p-trap it came right out of the wall. It was never glued!

Measurements of this room are roughly 3'6" x 3'-6" with a 9'-0" ceiling!!

Now all we need is a mirror...
