Yesterday I installed my first toilet. I have roofed, plumbed, carpentered, and played the electrician. I have installed sinks, built decks, and framed doors, but never a toilet. I was always intimidated by that large piece of porcelain. Now I see it is easy compared to a tub or shower. Mine doesn't leak a drop and was done in a few hours, including a new brass supply line. Now I'm looking around fiercely for some new challenge. Well, I need to put down some baseboard, and some of that needs to be scrolled around cabinets and tile, but ah…child's play.
