This is not one of those posts about gratuitous inspection-horrors, in fact it is not about anything horrible at all.
Inspectors love to do posts about all the crazy things they find–me included.
In a way these posts are like sucker punches because usually the more absurd, the more scary or the more off the wall they are, the more “interesting” and/or entertaining they will be. It is like an accident along the side of the road–who cannot look? If you need more evidence of this fact just look at the huge back-ups that often happen on a divided highway on the side of the highway that isn’t even involved in the accident.
But today’s post is simply about sharing a very cool sink I found in a home a while ago. Now if this sink had a high yuck factor–like oil or tootsie rolls came out when I turned on the faucet, or if steam came out–I could almost guarantee the post would get a lot of “likes”—or at least get a lot of comments.
But like I said—this is purely about a VERY COOL looking sink!
My only caution to you about these “vessel” type sinks is that they have no overflow–so be careful when you fill them up. It is probably a good plan to never fill one up while you are on the phone, texting or changing the baby’s diaper–they are not compatible with distractions of any kind. This type of sink is becoming quite popular–and many inspectors learn the hard way about the lack of an overflow.
