Hi,

Just an FYI.....on the flush mount sink, as of 2 months ago ETI would not install, as part of the build, one of these for you, at least in the 21. Not sure why, but that was the official word.

Thanks.

Jim once you finalize your build sheet (after the forthcoming big reveal, of course) would you be willing to post it here ?

Same with an undermount sink (not sure if that's the same as a flush mounted sink). I would have preferred that, but was told "nope" (or words to that effect).

Yep, under mount sinks require a solid surface.. think granite or "Corian." Doesn't work with Formica (which has seams around the bowl and possible leakers, etc.)

I asked too. But, doesn't prevent you from making the MOD. Wanna go first?

There is actually now a reliable method that works for under mounted sinks on laminate - the sink is bonded directly to the laminate itself and then also mechanically reinforced with wood on the under edges. It takes a special sink that has edges that will bond correctly. We got it with our new countertops. But, our installer said it had to be done at the place he got his laminate orders from, so I am assuming that it takes some specialized equipment to do it, not something that ETI would want to deal with.

Donna, I'll let you go first! I found another sink that I liked even better than the undermount I first asked about. I'm in love with it - least how it looks on a website and a larger one that I saw in person at Pioneer.

I'm thinking of sneaking across the border (with my passport in hand, of course) when a certain 5.0TA get delivered to someone from Maine, as he's getting the same sink I am. But, I know where he got the idea from! I really wanna see how it looks in the trailer and since they're getting the same countertop (reached independently on that decision) .....

Ours is much farther down the queue, so darn it - he'd better give me a good report on it and send me photos! It's already at Pioneer so I can't change my mind.

December (or September, fingers crossed) won't be here SOON ENOUGH!!!!

OMG, I just realized I could take another factory tour and maybe see his trailer towards the end of the production phase and then I can see the sink in place. OMG!
