I knocked this BB out today!  The basement bathroom needed the sink removed and reinstalled (yes, there's a BB for that too).  Since it's a pedestal sink, changing the faucet out is much easier while the sink is out.  So I upgraded the faucet today.

Had to do an emergency replacement. Thankfully the landlord paid for the parts.

Barely functional. The water mostly came out of the base instead of the faucet!

I installed a kitchen faucet and sink in my tiny home. It was pretty fun to hook it all up and turn water on. Presto! real life magic.

The youtube link shows the water being turned on.
