This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Plumbing.

In this Badge Bit, you will extend a plumbing run to a new location.  Want to add a faucet on the back of the house?  Let's run some plumbing pipe!

Here's one where they're running hot and cold to an outdoor fancy faucet:


Running hot or cold is 1 point each

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - extend a plumbing system to a new location
  - solder, pex, crimp, etc is fine as long as it's a permanent installation

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
  - the piping before you start
  - the project halfway through
  - the finished project
  - water coming out at the new location

I turned a bedroom into a bathroom.  Doing so required some plumbing work.  I didn't know about PEP at the time or I'd have even better/more pictures.  I'll only claim the shower and sink since I didn't get toilet plumbing pics :(  Since it's the straw badge and we can do up to 10 points of duplication, I'll post the sink first, then the shower...
