HOM dry sink kit bash, step by step

a little work here and there on the cottage kitchen

I turned a dry sink kit with a missing drawer front into a slate sink. I took pictures along the way so that I can write a step-by-step post this weekend, as requested.




I sanded, painted, sanded, painted, sanded, painted, then sealed one of the hutches.



Last night I cut new grooves to set the ceiling beams into, as I didn't like how low in the room they were.  They were at the proper ceiling height, but architecturally it didn't make sense to have them in middle of the wall instead of at the right height to support the roof structure....unless I was to use them as a base to build some sort of second story loft on, which I've no desire to do.  I couldn't move them to the top of the wall because it's cut at an angle for the roof to sit on, but I got as close to the top as I could.  Now they look right to me and don't block the view of the room.

You did a remarkable transformation on the sink and I love your hutch! It's perfect! I look forward to your tutorial!


You have so much more room now with the ceiling beams set higher - why would a kit leave that much empty space and obstruct the view into the room like that to start with?

Clever you for raising them up!


I agree, the beams look much better. You did a fine job cutting a new slot for them.

I love to watch you're buildings progress, you do very smart work.
