Since The Viking has been having trouble making time to visit to The Glade to finish hooking up the plumbing to the master bathroom sinks which are integrated into a marble countertop on the vanity cabinets, I finally hired a plumber to come and do the work.
Shut-off valves had already been installed to the roughed-in plumbing.
Then the Moen faucet valves, which were purchased separately from the Icon valve trims, were installed while the sinks were upside down in the bedroom.
Since the top is all one piece it was very heavy to heave up onto the vanity cabinet. Charlie and The Viking did a fine job of setting it in place.
The next task was to attach the drain lines which (even to me) seemed to be a simple task of cutting appropriate PVC and gluing it together which the plumber did.
The final hook-ups were accomplished under the sink top by snugging the screw rings onto the valves.
Finally the Moen Icon trims were attached to the valves and the high-arch spigots set in place.
The task list for the master bathroom continues:
- install a tile backsplash behind the sinks;
- hang mirrors on the wall behind the sinks;
- paint the window and baseboard trim and touch-up the wall paint;
- install the round window trim;
- hanging lighting fixtures over the vanity;
- hanging towel bars in the master bathroom;
Now that the sinks are working in the master bathroom we no longer need to use the pink bathroom for tooth-brushing and hand-washing so it can be cleaned from top to bottom.
