    I think most people would snake from the sink (lav) first.
    Then you can snake the tub through the overflow of the tub drain.

    Let not your heart be troubled, Mikee!!! You've made it through the fire and it sounds like you've about got the renovation licked. As Terry said, these drains can be snaked without too much of a problem.
