Old House Journal - - Stuff I Screwed Up - —Peter Carlsen

As a se­rial ren­o­va­tor, I al­ready had a rap­port with my cab­i­net­maker. We sat down casually, early in an ex­ten­sive job, to sketch up a Vic­to­rian-style bath van­ity. The work­ing draw­ing for the cabi­net shop was done in el­e­va­tion. When the cabi­net was de­liv­ered—to the newly built room—I re­al­ized that the tall sec­tion, with draw­ers as deep as the cabi­net, was blocked by the toi­let. Oops.
