Laundry Laminate Countertop DIY?

Just wanted to know how easy it is to add a Laundry Laminate Counter top. Builder charging $1200 for this. Can this set up bought at Big Box stores and install?

Depends how big the space is, you can probably get quartz for that price
$35/5GB Koodo

The install can be quite easy if the washer/dryer are in an enclave (U shape) as the countertop is supported on 3 walls by a 2x3 screwed to studs....counter top sits on the 2x3. The counter top is also supported from floor to its bottom by (ideally) another section of the same counter top. Gives a nice, finished appearance....if the counter top is 90-120" or so the support is placed at 60" so the washer/dryer are boxed in.
I there's room a sink can be built in, support can be cabinetry box.

Stupid easy. Check the restore even. Cutting countertops easy with a circ saw, decent blade, masking tape, straight edge and 10 measures before you cut.
Gbill2004: Thanks but I'll just smell the couch before/if I buy it.

jonnyb: I go in there like PICASSO and toss the glue everywhere, I don't care what house I'm on.
