Because they seem to be for our new tiny house! Ok, I am hyperventilating, …must….think…..clearly!
You know my love for farmhouse sinks, specifically old, cast iron farmhouse sinks…… and my fondness for stainless steel. This was a kitchen in my grown up, ‘big’ house. I found this beautiful sink in the woods, filled with leaves, soil and creepy crawlies.
I have had the privilege of rescuing two of such beauties.
Although beautiful, they are SO heavy. It took four men to hoist the sink in the photo above into place. Not practical at all in a tiny house.
An acceptable light version would be the sinks now available from Ikea:
But I do not have the cabinets to go with this sink. So my alternative idea was to do a laundry sink. I love the idea, they have legs, they are light weight, and when dressed with a skirt, kind of cute:

But my heart really wished for an industrial, stainless steel utility sink, like this:
at 22 inches wide, it has the depth I want in a sink. We cook three times a day and then some, so my tiny kitchen needs to WORK. No hot plate burners or bar sinks here……. However, it comes with a $749.00 price tag, I did not even check into shipping rates…….
So I have been perusing Craigslist like it ain’t nobody’s business.
Imagine my delight when I woke up to this: http://fayar.craigslist.org/bfs/3841557323.html
I know the listing will not be there forever, but he has TWO, and I only need ONE! It is so beautiful, it brings tears to my eye just looking at it………
THIS is my sink, for $130.00. My husband is on his way to purchase it now, even as we speak. I am such a spoiled girl. I raise my pinky finger…….and it is mine.
So now I have cabinets ($30.00 from Craigslist, pulled from a doctor’s office – nothing beautiful, but sturdy and cheap). We have a free fridge, apartment sized, and I will use my stove from our previous tiny house.
I think we will start putting it all together in a couple of weeks, so, as always, stay tuned…..
