Retro Fit Undermount Farm Sink Installation in Pinehurst, NC

This is a retro fit undermount farm sink installation in Pinehurst NC. The countertops are Corian and have been in the home for about 15 years. The homeowners love their Corian and did not want to get granite or new Corian.
                                         Here is the existing sink.

Measuring twice

The plastic bubble is in place and I am about to go under to start cutting.

Don't worry.  I am just lining things up.  The mask goes on before the cutting starts.

All of the rough cuts are made so I can remove the section with the sink in it.

The sink is removed and now the real work begins.

Fabricating the new Corian to rework the sink cutout.
I now have done the necessary work to hold the 140 pound cast iron Kohler Farm sink in the cabinet.  Now I have to fill in the empty areas with the new Corian that I am fabricating under the lanai.

All of the Corian fabricating is done and now it is time to integrate the old with the new

Sanding down the seams

Here is the finished product.  Almost.  The plumber will be there in the morning.

Countertop Alteration To Retrofit Freestanding Stove in Greensboro NC

This is a countertop alteration to retrofit a freestanding stove in place of the existing slide in range.  The stove installers already had the slide in range out of the way and the new stove is in the floor waiting to be installed.

The slide in range has a small strip of Corian around the back side of the stove.  That will be removed and the sides will also need to be cut to size for the new stove.

Everything is done and the new stove is installed.  The homeowner was quite happy to get her new stove.

Avonite Sink Repacement. Durham North Carolina

This is an Avonite sink that has cracked and needs to be replaced.  The homeowner has decided to go with a granite composite top mount sink for the replacement.

                          Avonite sink with crack.


                          Here you can see the crack.

                           Here is the new sink installed.

I would give a little more commentary but some things just are what they are.  This is one of those times.  The plumber will be along a little later to re plumb.

Wilsonart Sink Replacement in Asheboro North Carolina

This is a Wilsonart sink replacement in Asheboro North Carolina. The homeowners have a Wilsonart BD 322 sink that needs to be replaced. That sink has been discontinued by Wilsonart and the new sink that they have replaced it with is 2" smaller than the one we are replacing. That means we have a lot of work ahead to make necessary alterations to the sink area.
The first sink is now free from the countertop.  Because the sink was larger than the cabinet I had to break it into pieces to remove it from the cabinet.
The first sink was installed in a cabinet that was too small for the sink to fit into.  They had to scoop out the cabinet wall to allow them to set the countertop into place.  Unfortunately, that means that if the sink needs to be replaced at any point in time then the cabinets will need a little bit more modification.
In order to get the new sink into place I had to slide the sink into the dishwasher cabinet and then bring it back into place.
I've added the new material to the front of the sink cutout. 
The new sink is now integrated into the countertop.
I have cut away the excess material and it is now ready to sand and polish.
This is the finished product.  The homeowners were very happy.
If you look close, you can see the faucet is just a little bit of the mark of the center of the divider.  That is because of the new dimensions of the sink.  I can move it but they said it didn't bother them.
