Determine your front cut out for your farm sink base. If the sink does not come with a template and has a flat apron front, then lay the sink on some cardboard and trace out a template. Otherwise, you will need to measure the apron sink and mark the sink base using the measurements. If your sink width is equal to the width of the sink base, it may be as simple as measuring down the appropriate amount and cutting the top, back and sides completely away from the sink base. Your apron front stainless steel farm sink may be undermounted, flush mounted, or raised slightly above the countertop. Whichever method you choose will determine the height of your cutout for the front of the sink base.

· You will need to support the bottom of your new apron front sink. Install horizontal bracing from front to back along the inside sides of the cabinet with ½" plywood on top of the bracing to create a platform for the sink to rest on. Position the bracing so that after the plywood is installed your sink will sit at the desired height. Size the plywood so that it stops short of reaching the back side of the cabinet and will clear the plumbing when installed. Cut out holes where necessary in the plywood for the drain lines to hook up to the bottom side of the sink. Slip the sink into place and then install the countertops. Use silicone sealant to seal everywhere that the farm apron sink meets the countertop. The silicone sealant used to seal the sink will hold the sink in place.

As long as the drain basket for the disposal will fit the drain hole in the sink, there shouldn't be a problem

Your landlord has the responsibility to provide you with habitable premises. If there is another usable sink in the house, it might not be required for the landlord to install a sink downstairs. Also, it is required if the landlord promised or implied that there would be a sink in that bathroom.

The overflow is built into the sink, it is not part of the drain. If there is no overflow, you can not add it.

That would depend on how many holes the sink has .... If it is a one hole type you will need a pull out spray faucet or look at the Delta line

In Los Angeles, to install an owners kitchen sink would be around $200-$400. Now if you want then to install all the features as well the price goes up with each. Faucet, garbage disposal,soap dispenser, air gap, insta hot, filtered water tap. Even if all these are provided by the owner a sink install can cost up to $1500.

If there is no vent off the kitchen sink you would need to install an in-line vent.

You have to apply a small layer of thermal grease or thermal paste before you install the heat sink on to the CPU. You can add it on either the heat sink or the CPU, I prefer the CPU.

Yes, it installs the same as it would on a double.

It is legally required to install a utility sink in anyplace where cleaning supplies can be found. This will give people a place to wash up when exposed to these chemicals.

It is not excessively difficult to add a second sink. Make sure that there is enough room for the second sink. If you install the second sink next to the existing one, installing T-fittings to existing plumbing is a good idea. anonymous@oola.com

That would depend on the height of the drain and how deep the sink is. As long as the drain is lower than the bottom of the sink, it should be fine.

I would. I use to install granite but now I remodel custom kitchens. Almost every sink in a granite top is a undermount sink. Unless you had a decent undermount sink to begin with that could be reused, I would get a new one.

sounds like you are going to need to install a sump for the sink to drain into and then you put a sump pump at the bottom and connect it into the houses main line.
