I may have found the cheap solution, homedepot double basin 40 by 24, but it needs to be modified to remove the divider and plumb up both drains to my current drain


$100 at the HD, any design comments or ideas, I have to see this in person, I guess they wont stock it locally.

Wouldn't it be simple to build whatever size sink you wanted with 1X2 frame and lined with the white plastic used is cheap showers? Caulk it up for sealing joints?? Should be relatively cheap to.

Look at restaurant supply or liquidation stores. I have a 2x2x2 double basin stainless sink recovered from a restaurant demolition. Was a pots and pans sink.

It's been sitting outside in the yard now for 4 or 5 years waiting for a house remodel to have an actual life again.

I suspect that what little structural integrity that has will be compromised as soon as you start hacking it up. They are pretty flimsy to begin with.

could you make one with plywood and fiberglass?
could you mould one out of cement?

could you just craigslist a dishwasher?

I am semi-handy but have never made anything other than speaker boxes out of wood or fiberglass, my coworker just thought of an idea, he said make my own out of tile like a stand up shower, or just put in a shower and clean it in there.

what about a pig trough (galvinzied) from like tractor supply store and build a stand and put a drain in the bottom?

lol....... IP i think it is a good idea and would be an affordable way to do it.

But how would one shape this DIY sink to allow it to drain properly as I am imagining a sinke with 90 corners with a caulk bead, and that reminds me of my moldy mildew shower

mine is not this bad, but I hate re-caulking my tub
