DXV Fitzgerald Sink - A New Sink Perfect for Restoration Work

Here's the DXV Fitzgerald sink after it was installed. Look below to see how incredible the transformation was. This magnificent period sink was perfect for the ongoing restoration of an early 1900s Craftsman house in southern California owned by one of my best friends. Copyright 2019 Tim Carter

My very good friends Russ and Ann live in a stunning early 1900s Craftsman home in southern California. Russ grew up in the house and he and his wife Ann love each and every inch of it. I've stayed there countless times and look forward to each upcoming visit.

Russ loves old things and is doing painstaking work to restore the house to its original look and feel. Back in the 1970s his mom and dad remodeled the first-floor bathroom installing the latest trend at that time - a stylish wood vanity and a cultured-marble top. The original pedestal sink and faucet were ripped out and taken to a landfill.

This is the first-floor bathroom before work began. At some point in the past, the stunning stained woodwork was painted. Ann spent countless hours stripping the layers of paint to bring it back to its original look. Copyright 2019 Tim Carter
After removing the wretched wood vanity, Russ and Ann discovered they needed to update the failing galvanized iron drain line and water pipes. The plaster suffered as a result. The plaster under the board with the towel was re-attached to the wood lath using a spray foam. Pressure was applied with the horizontal board until the foam cured. Ann watched a few of Kirk Giordano's plaster repair videos on YouTube and completed the entire patch herself never having done plaster work before. She did a magnificent job.

Isn't this DXV Fitzgerald sink breathtaking? When you install a period American Standard faucet with the sink, you'd fool all but a few experts into thinking it was original with the house. I love the slightly rounded platform under the center of the faucet. What do you think? Type a comment below.
