Hi Steve, The minimum cabinet size refers to the width needed to support the size and weight of the sink. We recommend you follow the recommended cabinet size. Thank you!
Hi VS- Thank you for you interest in Elkay's Crosstown stainless sinks! The dimensions of this sink are Overall: 31-1/2 in. L x 18-1/2 in. W x 9 in. D Inside bowl: 30 in. x 17 in x 9 in. For more information please refer to our spec sheet here: http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/8a/8a9368b8-a3aa-4311-b6e7-1fcecc042832.pdf.
Yes, supplied in box
Firstly, I'm not a professional plumber, but I did install my own garbage disposal, and so no, you don't need the drain kit, as the disposal attaches directly to the sink's hole itself. And the stopper for the resultant garbage/drain hole should come with the actual disposal unit itself.
Yes ours is left forward.
I think so but we didn't order it.
