So here it is complete with the beech drainer I made. The drainer somewhat obscures the fact that the sink is indeed big enough for ritual sacrifice.
Sans drainer, ready for the sacrifice. Note to self: Need to do something about the splash back.
Close up of the sink waste. Looks like any other sink waste doesn't it? That's the genius!
Note the "patina" or "staining" in the stone (if only inanimate objects could talk?).
The general kitchen ambiance with a hint of 19th century chic
And the plumbing. While it looks simple it was a bugger to get right, i.e. It looked right, didn't leak and didn't use 3 gallons of silicone.
TOP TIP....when you have a house in France its tempting to buy your plumbing fittings in the UK and ship them over. My advice would be DONT. While the French fitting may seem different and a little expensive compared to UK ones, in the long run its a false economy. Bite the bullet, learn about the way the French do things, there is method in the madness. Usually in the end its more logical than you might think and you will save time and money if you stick with it. Plus the fact that a mish-mash of French and English fittings is a complete swine for any that follow you!
