I didn’t want to leave out of the KB Posts so I’ll add it early. Camp Verde ADA One Day Full Kitchen And Bath Refresh was a whirlwind of a job beginning at the crack-of-dawn, literally. Proof is in the Featured Image. Slotted for this job was a custom ordered cabinet set for an apartment in Camp Verde, Arizona. Because this ADA tenant was unable to be moved from the unit for any length of time, part of the plumbing contract was to completed the job in one working day or less. We agreed provided were able to get an extra early start. Working with a local General Contractor, Easy Fit Plumbing was up to the challenge and ultimately delivered.
All plumbing fixtures were to be reused which means Easy Fit Plumbing completed Camp Verde ADA kitchen, bathroom demo with care. When you hire Easy Fit Plumbing to demo plumbing fixtures and cabinets our goal is to remove them as whole as possible. Removing the fixtures whole saves time, mess and noise. On this Camp Verde ADA kitchen bathroom proper, clean demo is what made the job a success.
Kitchen and Bathroom Cabinetry Removal
So you know our plumbing demo philosophy now on to the process of removing the kitchen and bathroom fixtures. In a wholesale fashion we removed screws and nails from the existing cabinetry and countertops. Doing so allows us to remove whole pieces of plumbing furniture without making a mess in the kitchen and bathroom areas. The entire plumbing demo in the camp verde took just a few hours including salvaging the existing kitchen and bathroom fixtures. Easy Fit Plumbing reused the kitchen and bathroom faucets too.
Kitchen Cabinetry Installation
Next the box cabinetry went back in. As we removing the old cabinetry we made note of stud location to make installing the upper and lower kitchen cabinetry install straightforward. Once the kitchen lowers were in it was time for the kitchen sink to go in. But first we needed to cut the hole in the laminate kitchen countertop. Easy Fit Plumbing is equipped with the proper tools to make cuts in most countertop materials including natural stone. Now our sink hole is cut and in this case we do not need to cut a separate hole for the faucet because the sink and faucet are “one-piece”. Easy Fit Plumbing reused the sink bolts then applied a fresh bead of caulk around the sink and backsplash.
Kitchen Sink Connection
Reinstalling the kitchen sink went well. Re-connecting the hot and cold kitchen water supply received new braided flex hoses and new angle stops. No upgrades to the drain were necessary, just a standard, single bowl connection without a garbage disposal. By request we cleaned and reused the drain piping, which was in fine shape.
Bathroom Vanity Installation
While the caulk dried in the kitchen we set our sights on the bathroom vanity. Since we’re plumbers, we were able to turn off the water while setting the bathroom vanity. More on that later in this post. Having the water off we were able to make three nice clean holes in the back of the bathroom vanity box. One hole for the hot supply. One hole for the cold supply. One hole for the bathroom sink drain. When you open the cabinet and look at the back everything looks nice and clean. The alternative being a huge hole cut in the back of the bathroom vanity cabinet. No one likes a vanity with a big hole in the back.
Bathroom Vanity Top Installation
Ok, our vanity bottom is in and it’s time for the vanity top to go on. Again because these tops were ordered from the factory the sink holes are not pre-cut. On the mounted vanity top we mark for the bathroom lavatory then make the cut with a laminate countertop saw. For this lavatory re-install we will just need to drop the sink in and apply caulk around the edges to hold in in place. Just like in the kitchen we caulk the backsplash in the bathroom as well.
Bathroom Supply and Drain Connections
Similar to the connection process of the kitchen we reconnected the bathroom vanity. Angle stops and braided hot and cold supply hoses were replaced. The drain pipes were also again cleaned and re-installed. Fairly straightforward again for a professional plumber. That is why Easy Fit Plumbing was selected.
Finish Trim In The Kitchen
Project Camp Verde Kitchen and Bath is coming to a close with just a few details left. There are some pieces of trim that need to go around the cabinet uppers and lowers in the kitchen. Even through we are plumbers here at Easy Fit Plumbing we do go the extra mile in situations like these. We have decades of experienced techs who can complete small cross-trade tasks. Putting the final trim on this one day job felt great. We worked at a constant pace throughout the day and came out on top.
Why A Plumber For A One Day Multi-Family ADA Remodel?
Easy Fit Plumbing selected the job because we can offer cross-trade skills. However the property management firm requested a plumber complete the One Day Multi-Family ADA Remodel. They got past that but this unit on the 6 building property was special.
Why A One Day Kitchen & Bathroom Refresh?
For this ADA tenant, moving to another unit during renovation would have been too difficult. That is why the property management firm set out to find someone courteous and fast enough to complete the kitchen bathroom refresh with the tenant in place. Easy Fit Pluming was happy to be that plumber. Sorry the day went so fast we don’t have photos of the actual final plumbing fixtures. But enjoy the one picture we did take, Camp Verde, Arizona at dawn.
