The trashcan/recycling space is now being used for what it was intended:

I’m sure he thought this would go quickly but since this is my house where nothing ever goes as expected, it took all day yesterday and part of today!
After several trips to the local hardware store yesterday we got it in place and wired only to find the water line was a little too short. By that time the hardware store was already closed and nobody wanted to drive the 20+ minutes to the next closest one so today my dad picked up a longer water line and now:
I no longer have to wash by hand or lose most of my counter space to the dish rack!
