Hey! Broccoli is good for you! As a sidebar, the carpenter wants to use plumber's putty under the lip/flange/thing of the new sink (it has a 1' lip) rather than the foam gasket it came with. Is this overkill that will gum up my precious countertops or is he just being conscientious?
Thank you for the welcome, oldog/newtrick. I may have missed introducing myself in the correct forum and just dived in with my questions... sorry for any breach in etiquette.
I have to go and drink some wine now to prepare for the big day tomorrow.
