The House is on a Diet

Remember this crappy old laundry sink from an earlier post? Rusted out legs, leaking faucet, and slow drain? It was junk and needed to go.

It was replaced with this new unit from Menard's. It's about 400 pounds lighter, since it's not reinforced concrete.

The crappy old sink has been taking up space in the basement long enough, and since the dumpster is here, it's time to get rid of it. Out comes Mr. Sledgehammer and the old sink is now reduced to rubble. That trailer was really not liking carrying that much weight. I probably should have hooked it up to the tractor, but I didn't want to screw around with it since it was raining. If there wasn't so much wrong with this sink, I would have found a way to re-use it. Busting it up and hauling the debris up the stairs in buckets wasn't a whole lot of fun. At least it's done...

It's all your's, Nate. Come get it! It'll be in the dumpster next to your shed for a few more days.

Uh, I think I'll pass on the sink. I already have on in my dumpster and three more that will be on their way. I do like the thought of a concrete sink though, seems like an appropriate material.
