If you recall from the plumbing post, the water comes in through a garden hose and splits to the sink and shower immediately once inside.
I wanted the sink to be versatile and compact. So I designed and built it in my living room (so I could keep working after dark when it was cold).
I cut all the pieces before I brought them home. Then my wife and I stained each piece and let them dry overnight.
I pre-drilled each hole to avoid splitting the wood with the screws.
Once the sink was assembled in place in the tiny house, I put another layer of stain on it. Sink installation was fairly easy after that. I didn’t need the universal undermount kit I’d been advised to get. I did need a separate faucet and drain connections as well as clear silicon adhesive to seal it all together.
The sink is on locking wheels and has shelves that fold up on each side. It has a deep laundry bucket sink and overhead dish and hand towel racks.
For the drain you can see in the pictures there’s a 6 foot hose that can be connected to drain into the shower. Otherwise, you can use a bucket if you’d like to hand irrigate or find that more convenient.
If you’ll recall, the toilet is a composting toilet. I more or less was looking for a stand that I could make light, portable, water proof and comfortable.
I came up with an outdoor chair with a toilet seat attached. I even went in for the nicer seat that has pressure hinges to let itself down nice and slowly so there’s no harsh banging in a small space.
I used a reciprocating saw to cut the back off the chair and a jig saw to cut out the hole. I needed a length of PVC and an extra set of toilet bolts to complete it.
Now it’s in the bathroom over the bucket for it. You can leave it in there to take a shower or take it out since it’s so light.
