    Default DIY job

    The house had a basement that was roughed in when the house was built. The homeowner did the trimout, as well as made a few "changes."

The basement has a dropped ceiling, and there's no vent pipe above where the sheetrock ends. Also there's no AAV under the counter. So we cut a hole on the other side of the wall behind the sink to see where the pipe runs:
