Either patch the drywall or just cover it with the cabinet.
That is just what I have been looking at. there is room in the cupboard if the drain was centered.

Well she's in! Definitely Mickey Mouse Goofy and Donald Duck have to put this vanity in! Feel free to laugh at my amateur hole cutting skills, my crappy Harbor Freight drill and my flip-flops LOL. But I was able to get this thing in with no Plumbing or extra tools whatsoever.

I think half the time was spent with me worrying about whether or not I can make this cabinet work and being afraid of punching a hole through the back. Once I did that and committed to it I just worked it in and made the hole bigger.

Could not have done it without you guys my solution for the plastic slide by the way which hit exactly where the 45 degree drain pipe went into the wall was to Simply hack saw it off about 3 in away from the plastic guide. It may sag when everything is loaded but at least they have use of the whole drawer if needed.

I may end up drilling Maybe a 2 inch circle at the back of the drawer to clear the shutoff valves but the drawer itself has full capacity.

Thanks again for all of your quick reply so I couldn't have done it without all of you.

Cheers, The Count

Looks good from my house.
Stand 1x4 up from the floor to the bottom of the drain screw threw both lower and higher slider and that will support the drawer.

The cold water tap will be accessable from the left cupboard with the drawer pulled, I wouldn't cut a hole in the back of the drawer.

That's a good idea Neil with the 1x4.

The back of the drawer hits the front of the shutoff valve that's the only reason why I need to drill it out I just need an inch or two and then they'll have to full drawer floor

Good enough for government work Count, you did it.

I feel your pain. Just put in one of those "clearance" vanities with my son at his new house. He learned some new words, I got a few more battle scars, but we had a great time doing it.
