Living in NH means having minerals in your water which leads to plumbing problems, such as sediment building in your fixtures. About 10 years ago, I had to replace our shower/tub fixtures again. This used to mean ripping a whole in my wall and having to patch it once the plumbing job was done. Being the lazy guy that I am, I decide to install a plumbing door. But I didn’t want a door… so I made a very thin cabinet/knick-knack / magazine rack which I can remove and re-install with 2 screws. Most of my bathroom plumbing is behind those 2 screws

Cool idea!

I think your quote, ” Being the lazy guy that I am,” should be changed to… Being the (insert any of these) smart, practical, resourceful … guy that I am

Give credit where credit is due. Functional/practical project that looks nice!

I agree with the last comment you are definitely not lazy.That is a nice cabinet and it also keeps from repairing the wall when you need access to the plumbing.My fathers last duty station was a recruiter in Manchester.We lived in a little town called weare.It sure was cold there

I was once told that if you really want to know the best and easiest way to do something, ask a lazy person – they will come up with it.

Bernie, this is a great idea. Not only did you add a cabinet that adds a nice touch to the bathroom but you also avoided having to repair a large section of drywall. To tell the truth I think it is a lot more fun to be making sawdust rather than working on drywall. :)
