Our contractor really didn’t want to install our sinks (hoping a countertop installer would do it) but he ended up with the task.
Both sinks are undermount varieties and so need to be installed before the countertops.
The farmhouse apron sink is sitting on battens screwed to the side of the cabinet to carry the weight of the sink.
The face of the cabinet had to be cut down to accommodate the 9-inch depth. Our contractor was worried about this step, afraid he would mess up the cabinet.
The front of the sink is NOT supposed to rest on the front of the cabinet so a small (neat) gap is necessary.
Looks fine. Now on to my sink.
It also sits under the counter but is fully covered by the cabinet which does not need any facial surgery. Even though my sink is the smaller of the two it’s still huge and just fits into the space allotted.
The corner cabinet supports were routed to allow the sink to sit flush with the top.
Viewed from underneath the support pieces were screwed to the sides of the cabinet to hold the sink in place.
With both sinks installed we’re ready for the countertops to be installed and the details to make the kitchen useable to be finalized.
