Tradies Gotta Work Together

Last Friday Dad and I had to fit off a bathroom renovation. We have to go back to change over the taps because the ones that the client had supplied were too short to be installed in the existing wall combination. For those that don’t know plumbing talk, basically the tap handles and flanges wouldn’t screw back to the tile wall for the shower and bath.

Anyway, these pictures are of a vanity basin where our waste pipe was covered underneath the bottom of the cupboard, still capped with grey duct tape. I’ll be honest, at first glance I was frustrated that the cabinet maker hadn’t thought about how the plumber would hook onto the pipe below, but a bigger hole was sawn and we were able to peel off the duct tape and install the basin waste. Tradies gotta work together to make sure a project goes smoothly.

The client chose a square above counter basin and a standard mixer tap. We decided to install the basin flush with the wall so that water wouldn’t splash behind the basin which would be a nuisance to constantly dry up.

I think it’s come up really nice and when the walls are painted white, it will look even better.
