I am remodeling a bathroom for a customer in Naperville.  The early 1990s style bathroom was in need of a complete refresh. Beyond the usual replacement of the floor and bathtub surround, my customer wanted a new medicine cabinet.  Her previous cabinet was tiny and located on the side of her vanity.

She wanted a much bigger cabinet, repositioned above the sink.  This would give her more storage and a large mirror.  Initially, I felt that this would be a simple job.  However, I discovered that a vent stack pipe was directly in the way.

The solution was obvious, The vent stack pipe had to be moved.  Using a few PVC elbows and a little ingenuity solved the problem.
