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.

Night,
Holly

Holly, welcome to House Repair Talk. Etiquette is not our best virtue. Jump right in where ever you have a question or can help others with questions.

"Etiquette" - What's that?

I think you are correct.

God knows I can get myself into plenty of trouble on these forums from time to time and none of it has anything to do with eddyquit. That's cause I have none!

We don't got no stinkin' etiquette up here either as long as the Queen ain't visiting! Except we do plant flowers in the old toilets in our front yards We've even been known to go so far as to paint the empty beer cases holding up our sagging porches and dead cars.

And Hooray! The countertops and sink are in! No more broccoli baths! We didn't get the aluminium banding on because the plumbing required some gymnastics and two trips for supplies and some really meaningful swearing. (new sink drain is not centered like the old one was and we had to work with the old cast iron drain pipe angle) Looks fabulous.

We played with a strip of the edge banding and it will be a piece of cake - takes the curves as it was designed to.

Today was a very good day!

Cheers,
Holly

This thread isn't totally worthless without pitchures cause hell, we already lurned whom has eddyquit and whom ain't got none. AND, we now have a new recipe for making broccili soup.

Pitchures would be extra nice tho.

Rats! I'm just home from a 12 hour shift. Registered with Photobucket and managed to move some pics there, but now I can't figure out how to get them into my message. Apparently work sucked my brains out today. Please advise how to get these pics posted. Too pooped to be embarrasse by my lack of techspertise.

thanks guys,
Holly
