I turned off the water to the faucet and turned the electric off to the garbage disposal. I disconnected the garbage disposal following the manufacturer's instructions. I scored the caulk around the sink, disconnected the plumbing, and lifted the sink out.
How to Install a Farmhouse Drop in Sink.
**I was given products for this project, but the post and opinion are my own.**
When we moved in, we needed a new sink, but were not ready to replace the countertops. We loved the style of the farmhouse sink, but most were under mount, until we found the Josephine sink from Sinkology. S
After the sink was removed I cleaned off the old caulk. Using the BILTapp per the manufacturer's instructions, I measured the existing hole and made the necessary cuts to allow for the new sink.
Once the cuts were made, the sink was dry fit to ensure that it fit the new space. Silicone was added to around the lip of the sink and the new sink dropped back into place.
A new faucet was installed, plumbing and garbage disposal reattached. A bead of caulk ran around the sink and counter. This drop in sink is the perfect answer for someone who loves the look of the farmhouse sink, but under mount is not an option.
