The water service from the city comes right into the main area of the basement. It’s kind of an eye-sore. We decided to hide it, by installing a 36 inch sink base cabinet around it. The cabinet needed to have doors so that we can get to the water shutoff valve. Because the pipes come in somewhat high, Joe had to elevate the cabinet by about 4 inches, but the cabinet helps to hide the pipes and water meter.
Joe also gave me a tutorial on how to turn off the water to the house! 🙂
