(I shall try to get a photo, I promise)
We have a sink and faucet!
(New ones, that is, and finally installed.)
This project, like all home improvement projects, expanded and expanded and expanded – but it’s done. Well, at least for the moment.
So, problem one: Our walls are nearly-solid wood, not studs. They’re 2″x~15″, 16″-on-center.
That means the sink plumbing does down, not into the wall and then down.
That means our solid-bottom pedestal doesn’t fit, ’cause the solid bottom would go right over the encased-in-cement drain!
So, fix one: we bought two ~4″x4x”x24″ pieces of very pretty maple, sanded, stained, and polyurethaned them. Instant (ha) stand-out.
Then we got food poisoning.
Then the P-trap didn’t have a down, because plumbing goes into the wall.
Then the hot water didn’t work.
It took – well, don’t ask, but it took 2 weeks of working on it regularly, but now we have a beautiful functioning sink.
Next step: toilet. Wish us luck!
