Almost two years after demolition began on the laundry room, we finally have a utility sink in the house again.
But this is not just any utility sink. This is a luxury model, created by yours truly.
As I was shopping for sinks, I realized that like the washer box, laundry sinks haven’t really evolved. Not sure when it was decided that laundry room fixtures should be second rate, but it’s definitely a trend.
To make up for the failures of the plumbing industry, I found a pretty reasonably priced utility tub, and made plans to pretty it up a bit by undermounting it and adding a high-end faucet.
First, after modifying the factory template a bit, I cut the opening out of the butcher block with a jigsaw.
And just like that, I have a sink that resembles a backwards outline of Oregon to rinse my paintbrushes in again.
