Country Project – The Outdoor Sink

This is the story I really wanted to tell about spending last weekend in the country. But, I thought it would be kind of odd not to get the background told first. But, now that is out of the way, I can’t wait to share with you last weekend’s big project.

In the back yard, there is an outside sink. It really is a neat idea. A yard hose hooks up to the faucet and you have working sink outside. This is the perfect place for cleaning fish, dressing game, washing dirty kids, etc.

However as you can see from the pictures below, it had fallen into so disrepair and the surrounding area wasn’t very inviting either.

So, we set to cleaning out the area. We relocated the shingles, cut down some limbs, took out a tree and reset the brick. The most fun came when it was time to demo the old table. Seriously, slinging a heavy hammer is some big fun.

We took the sink and gave it a good cleaning – scrub pads and straight razors required. I learned to use a chainsaw and cut off the unneeded parts of the legs – ok, maybe THAT was the most fun. I have discovered an unknown passion for chainsaws. Coupla cuts, coulpla screws, coupla beers, VOILA!!
