... add blocking between the studs ...
I hate pedestal sinks. theyre nice to look at, but a bitch to install, and repair in the future. would never put one in my house.
Agreed, need to add blocking. My main concern was making sure when kids lean on the front edge of the sink that it wouldn't collapse. I was able to remove the medicine cabinet and add blocking through that cavity, which as a pipe space was about 10" deep.
They can be challenging to install. However in a 4x5 bathroom (excluding the tub), the pedestal makes it seem a lot less crowded and it's easier to clean now with just tile & porcelain instead of pee- and shower-splashed wood.--
