Wall sink installation

Getting ready to have my tiny wall sink roughed-in. Name:  wall sink.jpg
Views: 339
Size:  14.6 KBAppears it has a bottle trap (which I want) and a very short drain.
Any pointers on what I should be asking the plumber to make sure he does the right thing.

Wow, tiny is right. There's no room for something bigger?

Make sure he sets the drain height in the wall properly for how high you want the sink.. Make sure a backer board is installed too at proper height. After sink is installed you need to remember where this board is, so take measurements from reference points..

The sink should come with rough in measurements. Dont let the plumber guesstimate...

Mitch17, this powder room is only 3' wide and 4' deep. Just big enough for a wall hung toilet and very small sink (has to be small to meet code).

Lawrosa, thanks for the tips. I will be nailing up blocking between studs to attach the sink to. Don't have the sink yet but will check all the instructions that come with it.
