The undermount farmhouse sink has a small section protruding from the front of the sink down in front of the cabinet where the sink rests. This undermount farmhouse in front of the sink is how the receiver gets its name. Many farm style kitchens use this sink design. There are two varieties of simple and double sink that use the apron style. Installing the sink is a simple process and should take about one or two hours to complete.
Measure the width and height of the sink. Draw this measurement on the counter where you want to install the sink. Most countertops come with an opening to place a sink, so the only cut you are likely to have to make is down the front of the counter to make room for the apron.

Cut out the cover so the sink slides into place. Use a hand-held power saw to cut the countertop. Cut 1-by-2 tables to a size 1 inch wider than the sink. Screw these plates in place under the cover to create reinforcements to support the weight of the sink. Screw the boards to the countertop brackets. Cut a platform equal to the size of the base of the sink and screw the supports. Make sure there is enough space behind the plumbing platform to fit inside. Install the surrounding countertops around the sink opening if they are not already there. Screw the lid in place along the cabinet tops.
