Install a farmhouse sink

A farmhouse sink is a good choice for today’ s more casual homes designed with informal open kitchens that extend into a family room.

With no indoor plumbing in early rural kitchens, water was hauled inside in a bucket and poured into a farmhouse sink, with a large apron front, designed to hold a lot of water. It’s a good choice for today’s more casual homes designed with informal open kitchens that extend into a family room. Because it is large it’s often used to bathe a baby or small dog as well as wash large pots and pans.

A plumber will charge $2,010, including labor and material, to install a 30-inch porcelain apron front single bowl farmhouse sink. A handy homeowner with plumbing tools and experience can do the job for $1,800, the cost of the sink and faucet. To install one in an existing kitchen you need to adjust the countertop and possibly the base cabinet to accommodate the wider and deeper apron sink. It is heavier, too, so take that into consideration. In a new kitchen you can use the guidelines suggested by the manufacturer.

And, if the landlord does notify a tenant that the landlord elects to terminate the lease, can the landlord simply notify the tenant of the termination and give them 30 days’ notice? Is this the right way to do it?

Q: I am on the board of a condo association and it was brought to our attention by a past owner who was selling his unit that a potential buyer noticed that the par value noted in the governing documents of our association did not match that in the multiple listing services in our local tax assessor’s tax base.

Our phones do much more than call and text. They allow us to check our email on the go, play music during a long drive, watch movies on plane trips, look up any question, and play games on bus rides. But all these functions drain the battery, and there’s nothing worse than being stuck with a dead phone when you need it most. These products make it easier than ever to charge your phone.
