comment Is there a simple way to retrofit an existing toilet with a top-mounted sink?
"prison toilet" could also turn up a few hits. Some are grey-water based. Their main feature is compact size and a single sink/toilet unit.

Edited to fit DIY guidelines. Asking how to make, instead of where to buy

"Is there a simple way to retrofit an existing toilet with a top-mounted sink?" - Is a DIY question. If you cannot buy a product to meet your needs, you make it. Thats DIY. I've posted an edit to shift the question to fit in these guidelines.

@ChrisCudmore - Your blog post never really mentions trim. I think the takeway from your post is "leave a 1/4" gap between the floor and the vertical surface it goes up against then cover that gap with a wide enough trim piece to hide the gap as it expands and contracts". Is that a fair summation?

"Buy trim that is thicker and will cover expansion gap." So I need a 1/4" expansion gap. How thick should the trim be to cover that? 1/2"? 3/4" 5/8"

Your remarks as to why I need a gap and that the 1/4 round is used to cover that gap was helpful.
