Today we knocked some more things off of the list. Our plumber came over and installed sinks in the laundry room and studio. Before he could do that though we installed the new counter tops in each room. We measured the sinks and cut out the rough openings with a jig saw. We then attached the counters with a screw through the corner cleats in the base cabinets. Once the counters were in place installing the sinks didn’t take too long.
We also had the plumber raise the hot and cold water outlets for the washing machine in the laundry room. This will allow us to turn off the water in case of an emergency without having to move the washing machine out from under, the yet to be installed, counter top. We decided to leave the electrical outlet above the future counter too in case we ever want to use it to plug in an iron or crafting tool. By the way, the washer weighs a ton so when we do the counter top over it, we’ll make the counter removable. That’s the only way to man handle the washer in and out; if the counter isn’t in the way. One last thing, we’ll just cut holes in the counter for all the hoses and power cord from the washer. It’ll look fine.
Now I just have to patch up the drywall in the laundry room and that project should be done for now.
