Dry sinks were used to hold the pitcher and wash basin that were standard in any well equipped home. You might find a dry sink in the kitchen or bedroom area and more than one farmer’s wife kept one on the back porch.
The dry sink was a cabinet with a recessed area on top. More expensive dry sinks had these areas lined with copper or other waterproof material. The recessed area kept the water from the pitcher and bowl contained while someone washed up. The dry sink also had storage areas where extra towels and personal items would be kept.
The Hochstetler Furniture line is custom made on demand. Paul Hochstetler custom builds each piece out of his workshop in Eastern Ohio. Due to this, shipping for each item can take between 8 - 12 weeks to arrive.
As members of the Amish faith, the Hochstetler family lived their lives without electricity, a refrigerator, or modern transportation in a small Amish community in Ohio. They grew vegetables in a garden, raised their own livestock, and stored canned food and milk in dry cellars. It was their way of life—a simple life reflective of a simpler time.
In 2012, Paul and Mary, along with two other families—Amish neighbors—joined the LDS Church. As both Paul and Mary attest, "The Book of Mormon and the message of the Restored Gospel have changed our lives, forever."
Since joining the Church, Paul and Mary have faithfully raised their family in the LDS faith. Even though Paul is no longer considered an Amish craftsman, his skills continue to earn him a reputation as an expert artisan.
