I have a solution for you. Click here for my solution.

You may also replace your existing under mount or drop in sink with a farmhouse stainless steel sink without having to cut your cabinetry! Do it with ease with my patented design and my personal assistance.

If you are looking for a farmhouse sink and you are replacing your countertops and keeping your cabinetry, Rachiele has the answer.

My patented design offers an apron that is shorter than the bowl with a channel behind the bowl allowing for the apron to slip over the cabinet frame simply by removing the false drawer head(s). scroll down for pricing

I can design one of these as a drop in or under mount sink. The drop in version (seen below) and the undermount version seen to the left is the perfect solution for cracked granite in front or behind your kitchen sink. The photo to the left is an under mount version used generally when replacing a countertop and keeping existing cabinets. Cracks are common due to the frequent use of iron supports that have been routed in to the granite in front of and behind the sink to add strength to a weak area. Granite is porous, so over time the moisture goes through to the iron and rust begins. When iron rusts, it expands. Since the granite cannot expand, it cracks. This problem is nation wide and there are only two solutions that I am aware of. Replace the granite or use my patented sink design that fixes the issue and offers a far superior workstation sink that allows for food preparation on the sink instead of on the counter!

The "Before and After" photo to the left was an interesting one. We were tasked with replacing a concrete sink and partial countertop with a farmhouse stainless workstation sink (hand hammered). My background as a kitchen designer came in handy when calculating the perfect fit for the countertop and for the cabinet below. No cutting of the cabinet was required.

NEW DESIGN FEATURE FOR 2018 NexGen is the next generation in workstation sinks. Up until now, workstation sinks had a "step" that held up the accessories. My new innovative design removes the step and replaces it with a small ledge. The sink width remains the same at the bottom as the top. This innovation gives the user an extra inch of front to back space in the sink with this option. My design gives 34 square inches of additional space inside a 36" sink. You just might fit your outdoor grill inside the sink! Our original Signature Series has a 1/2" step - much like many others on the market that have followed my original design.

Prior to manufacturing sinks, I was an accredited kitchen designer. I came up with this design idea about 16 years ago to solve a problem. Many families were upgrading their kitchens by replacing countertops and appliances, but were keeping their cabinetry. Many wished they could have an apron front farmhouse style sink. My design, with a one inch channel behind a shorter apron solved the problem. I patented the design. Everything about this design is custom to your particular situation. The apron height will be basically the same height as the false drawer on your sink cabinet. The sink can be much deeper, as it falls behind the face frame of the cabinet. Take a look at this videos further down the page below the pricing to see how simple this design makes an installation so easy. I can build this type of sink as an under mount or drop in top mount sink.

Please call to order your sink. I will walk you through the process, explain different designs and options so you can make an informed decision. I will ask questions about your height, handedness and food preparation style as well as other pertinent information. We will decide together which accessories might be most helpful and which ones might be ordered later, after you use your sink for a while. My goal is to provide a custom sink that will be as efficient as possible for your particular lifestyle and as ergonomically comfortable as well - doing my best to ensure your investment is a wise one.

Two installation options. You can install as shown and shim the counter top slightly (most are shimmed anyway), or you can rout or belt sand down the area where the sink sits.
