    Default Oddball Sink

    I removed old cast iron sink in a home, found out I have an odd size sink-20x32, there is no way I can go deeper, existing face frame is notched to accept old sink. I believe this kitchen setup was probably mobile home spec. Local plumbing supply can't locate this size, no luck on the web either unless I go with a undermount which is expensive.

    Suggestions??

    Old sink is junk
    I'm willing to replace countertop
    I've considering shimming out cabinets from wall to accept standard countertop

    Thanks

    Elkay makes a 33 x 19 stainless for Mobile homes.

    It may be time for a new counter.

    What is your cutout size (opening) in existing top?

    Basically 32x20, this is a rental house owned by the Foundation I work for, we started with a bathroom remodel, while there I thought we could simply upgrade kitchen sink, I could go on and on with things we could do, the trap was just 90s glued together, drain lines were black poly into cast iron, the house isn't that bad just old.

    Default sink

    Does the old sink have the faucet on the sink or in the wall. Most of those had a wall mount sink. It was not a mobile home size, it was used with Nappanee cabinets which were narrower, i.e., 22" or 23", than the standard 24" depth.

    The reason I asked is that I'm fixing to clean out my shop and I have a brand new white Moenstone 3121 sink out there. I'll have to see what else I can find.

    How would you mount it in the countertop?
