Whoever designed the pipes to the KITCHEN sink so exposed was not thinking ahead. Yes, it may only get cold enough that it matters for a few weeks every 2 years or so, but when it does, that is the KITCHEN sink. It is a bit hard to cook, or, you know, clean up after eating when there is no water in the kitchen. >( I even left the cabinets open and the water running a bit all night. Apparently it wasn't enough.
