    How did you get the Brockway sink drilled that way for normal fixtures?

    - Usually it comes predrilled for a very specialized faucet only made by Kohler. Looks really lovely!

      The sink in the picture is not a Kohler product. It is an antique sink found in a salvage yard.

      What brand and model number is this sink? I would love to find it.

      • Angela Mechaley
        Hey Block Builders, can you elaborate a bit on the p-trap fitting? I'm trying to make a smaller cast-iron service sink (e.g. Kohler's Bannon or American Standard's Akron/Lakewell) work in a powder bath... Kohler & the distributor haven't been much help thus far. They only recommend their giant 2" or 3" floor-mount P-trap. Obviously, it's been done otherwise. :) The drain hole is 2 7/8". Did you use some sort of adapter to go from the large drain hole to the standard 1 1/2"/1 1/4" fittings? I'd appreciate any help. Good work by the way. Thanks!

        The key is the drain fitting, not the p-trap. If you find a drain that fits, then the p-trap can be fitted to it. the sink in this picture was likely 100 years old and was bought at a salvage yard so we had to find fittings that worked. In our project it was driven by getting a drain first and then fitting everything else to that.

        The sink was found in a salvage yard. We refinished it and found lav sets and drains to fit it.

        The medicine cabinets were custom built on the job for this project. All wood with glass shelving inside and plate glass mirrors on the doors.

            We haven't had any issues, though the trap where it fits into the drain is really kind of rigged up. If you look closely underneath the sink you can see that it's not the right fit but it works fine and doesn't leak. It's not a bathroom that we use very often so I think it's fine and the plumber put his full weight on it after mounting it but I'm still nervous about it all the time! But I'm happy we did it cause it looks awesome! Good luck!

            The sink that we installed in the picture that has generated all of these inquiries in supported by the wall behind it. We installed structural framing along with steel to carry the weight. The p- trap does not support any weight. All of these sinks should be supported by the wall that they sit against. They typically come with clips and/or angles along with instructions on installation. A normal interior wall will not support such a sink; additional framing is needed. Unless you have a floor mounted steel or cast iron drain that is designed to also serve as a structural element, your drain or p-trap will not support the weight of the sink.

            The wainscot is 42 inches tall. the sink was mounted so that the outside edge is 36 inches above the floor.

            The Kohler Brockway sink comes with a bottom in cast iron black and it can be painted later. Your best bet for getting it right is to hire an experienced painter.

            The sink in the picture is not a Kohler product, nor is Fry authorized to respond to your question since they did not have anything to do with the project. The sink in the project in the picture was found in a salvage yard; it is probably 80 to 100 years old. It had to be stripped and have an enamel coating applied to both the interior of the sink and the bottom in order to get the proper finish as you see pictured. This type of work and finish is typically done in a shop that specializes in industrial coatings.

                We had a drain custom made for the hole, which is what you may need to do. Otherwise there are plenty of online plumbing supply sites that sell a large variety of drains, and you may find one that works going through those sites.

                The sink in the picture was found at a salvage yard so it is more or less one of a kind. If there is a salvage business in your area that specializes in vintage, reclaimed and salvage fixtures from older homes, that would be your best resource. There are also some internet companies that sell vintage looking fixtures where you could find something that you like as well

                  The medicine cabinet was custom built in the field. It is indeed recessed into the wall. It was sized to work with the dimension of the reclaimed sink below it.
