Awesome, thanks so much for chiming in, Joppie! I adjusted the screw-in feet until it was level. If the upper sections were cut at the lengths that level with the wall connection, the horizontal section would be in the space of the bottom drawer. Regarding the comment about venting and emptying the p-trap, when a volume of water is drained, the drain needs to replenish the space formerly occupied by water with air, otherwise a negative pressure is created. To explain this as easy as possible, in the direction of flow after the trap you cannot change the direction up or vertical in any way before your vent which is located behind your wall.

Hi again Courtenay, Just one more question for you…. I love this sink too and I am gutted. I wrapped the ends with Teflon tape to help ensure a tight seal. If I resolve and have life remaining, I will update. Don't get me started on the kitchen sinks, holy shit, the clamps are plastic garbage and if the countertop isn't double thick like the ikea ones then they don't even work. By the way, a complete aside, in Australia we call them splashbacks! You can see additional photos of the space in my post.

The feet should take most of the weight off the wall.
However, the waste line for my sink is pointing straight out, no 90-degree elbow as shown in those photos. We actually used 2x4s and some metal brackets for bracing. I will say that one of the draws to this sink is the fact that the counter tops can butt up to the sides making cuts easier for a do-it-yourselfer even hard surfaces like granite. I still love you, but the show seems to have been stolen by the Ikea Domsjo sink in the court of public opinion! Followed the instructions, but used better gaskets than provided and some putty at the drain. Do you have this problem? I can easily fit 3 or four big pots in my sink now all at the same time with lots of room leftover, whereas before with my two divided sinks, I was only able to fit one pot in each sink and all the rest would just end up on the counter.
