Progress in the garage.

A~ and I decided, even before we moving in to this home, that we wanted to have a sink in the garage. Since we built this home from the ground up, we had the luxury of making sure that we had a drain and water access available to the area where we planned for it to go.

And that's pretty much as far as it got. A couple of years ago, I went ahead and tied into the drain, and piped in the hot and cold water but then got side tracked again. This weekend I got the corner cleared out for good, and this is what I had to work with.It's plenty deep, about four feet in fact, and nearly 8 feet long.

I had initially planned to just put in a large utility basin and build a basic plywood counter next to it. As the last few years have seen us growing and processing more and more food, we decided that we wanted to have a real sink and counter area where we could do all of our "straight from the garden" food processing before bringing everything into the house.I started with a basic support frame for the counter. I have a tendency to OVER build things. I did manage to hold myself back on this one though and I'm happy with it over all.Once I got that framed out, I could set the counter top and cut a whole for the sink. I was actually able to get a shelf in the middle of the base, but I didn't get a pic of it.

I still need to get some back splashing put in place and finish plumbing the sink in, but I should be able to get that finished up this weekend. That will give me one more chore crossed off the 2009 to-do list, and get me one step closer to working the greenhouse. No too close though...I still have a desk to build and some shelving to finish off. Baby steps....oh so many baby steps :)

Till tomorrow all, be well!

That looks great! I wish that we had a place where we could do something like that...Instead, we just track lots and lots of mud in through the back door and all across the kitchen floor.
