Re: New Bathroom


Just curious--why did you use ball valves instead of regular angle stops?
Also, on the toilet sweat-on angle stop, why did you come out so far, and are you planning on using a two piece cover flange?
I realize its down and behind the toilet and won't be seen.
Nice work as always...

On the sweat stop, the pipe was free to move in and out a few inches...I just held it out while I sweated it on. The escutcheon plate was a hinged version, I just re-used it.

In regards to ball valves in the cabinet, I could have went either way...quarter turn angle stops or traditional lever type ball valves. Plus I got bleeders on them that makes fixture swap outs and braided hose replacement easy.

Re: New Bathroom


Weather around here turned ugly with some snow, high winds and cold temps. I got my work station set up outside on the deck to fab up this box and whatever isn't tied down is blowing around. The end of the day yesterday I just threw tarps over everything and arrived today to find everything blanketed in fresh snow. After an hour of cleaning chit up, it was time to get'r ready for finish.

I wanted the lid to open straight up, front to back, but the shelf would have been in the way. I decided on hinging it left to right, but that made me change up the handle hardware as it would have hit the wall preventing the lid from staying open on it's own...plus your hand runs out of room as you're lifting towards the wall, not a very comfortable motion.

The simple fix just turned out to be a button style, recessed pull mounted to the face of the lid...easy, natural motion and you're hand stays out of the way.

Light fixtures covers finally arrived and I'm only waiting on one more robe hook they want mounted between the linen closet and shower.
