The master vanity has been pushed into place.
Permanently. It’s screwed to the wall.
The plumbing is configured with the waterlines coming up through the floor and the drain line protruding from the wall.
I’m always amazed that the measuring our friend does seems (to me) to be upside down and backwards but then everything fits.
He had cut the pipes level with a cut-off saw.
Our installer (The Viking) drilled 2 large holes in the back of the vanity and 4 smaller holes in the bottom.
With Charlie’s help the vanity was lifted onto the drain pipes. I helped thread the supply lines through the holes in the bottom.
He also brought a new (to us) kind of supply line valve called a SharkBite straight quarter turn stop. Apparently this push-fit connections costs about a dollar more, $9.72 each, than the traditional glued connection.
The push-fit valve just pushes over the pipe and stops the water. When we turned the water back on there were no leaks or drips. Yeeeee!
And the heat duct cannot be seen under the vanity so no masking necessary.
Next installment: the sinks.
Have you tried a new gadget that works great? Doesn’t work at all? Isn’t worth the money?
