If you're looking for something like this (only hopefully fancier). You could simply build the cabinet in such a way, that there is a brace where the pedestal part should connect. Just make sure the brace is strong enough to support the sink, and has a way to connect the sink to it while also allowing the plumbing to pass through. NOTE: These ...

This is not a trivial project, as apron front sinks have straight edges on the front sides and bottom. 2 cleats should span under the sink to support the weight. They should be sturdy enough to make the cradle, perhaps 1x3 or 1x4, oriented like joists. You could reinforce the cabinet sides with the same size boards laid flat and extending to the cabinet ...

It won't be perfect, but an Ovalyn by American Standard would work with the countertop hanging over the edge all around. Kohler or Bates and Bates will show an inside sink edge beyond the cutout on two sides.

Yes, it's more than possible to have a vanity be taller than 30". Depending on your height, most people would find a taller vanity to be more comfortable. The standard height of a bathroom vanity is 32" but comfort height vanities are raised by 4" for a total height of 36". ...

It's hard to tell from the picture but it looks like it was tile mounted to a wood board. Wood is one of the worst materials for behind the sink. If going to replace with tile, use a concrete backer board instead and consider using tile trim caps to cover the top. Otherwise use a solid stone or stone like material. And make sure the caulking is in good ...

Ultimately was difficult enough that after about 90 minutes I simply decided to order a new spring and install it very carefully. Perhaps it was possible but it only seemed to get worse when we tried.

You should siphon the water out using a tube or flexible pipe. I have included an article containing instructions on how to do this here. You will have to adapt it to a much smaller scale, but the principle is the same. If you just do a search for siphoning, maybe you will find a better/more applicable example. I just chose this article bc it wasn't about ...

First confirm that the problem is at the valves and not a clogged faucet screen. Backing-up the valve with an adjustable wrench you could turn your knobs with channel locks but be prepared for a few drips, or something completely catastrophic to happen. Not something to be messing with on a Saturday evening. Being frank, those valves are crap. Preferably ...

Standard bathroom vanities were made at 32" years ago when many homes typically were 2/1's with a shared bathroom. That means parents and children would be using the same vanity. To accomodate children, vanities were lowered to 32" which is standard height. Now that many homes have multiple bathrooms and even a dedicated bathroom for each room in the ...
