Plumber Mike Lombardi is removing the last remaining fixture in our Fine Homebulding Project House bathroom remodel: the sink.

- Shutting off the sink water-supply valves (or main water supply, if necessary)
- Removing hot and cold water lines using a basin wrench and a crescent wrench
- Disconnecting the drain trap
- Removing the actual sink from its wall bracket
- Removing the old drain nipple that enters the wall
