Due to the fault of no one, our construction had been delayed because of our granite situation.  We arrive at day 28 of “construction” with prep for a granite install tomorrow.  Our custom steel “table” base has been installed.

Our old fridge moved again, this time out of the kitchen and into the garage.  We’re tired that fridge and glad it’s not in the house.

The kitchen was decluttered a bit.  We can now see the window soon to be replaced by a garden window (that is ready to be picked up and installed).

And, we can glance into the butler’s pantry.

While we were at Hankins yesterday, we picked up our top choice board of handles and knobs.

We are looking for modern, a little pizazz but definitely functional.  We’re leaning toward the 3rd or 4th down from the top in the center column.

Back to the granite yard yesterday.  One slab of our Silver Galaxy is potentially salvagable.  A little chip, some cracking, a couple ugly black streaks ….

Ever so patient with us, our KD takes on another complete tour of the huge granite warehouse and yard.  No slab is left unturned (not really, but that sounds cool).  Nevertheless and (seemingly) miles later, we end back to where we started.  Is this one last piece salvagable?  Can the templates be arranged to work?  Are there more hidden cracks?

Clever planning, arranging and re-arranging allowed us to leave hopeful all will turn out well.  Myron from All Marble was ever so helpful despite the half-hearted push for us to choose “black” for the island.

While we were there we saw our perimeter granite already cut, polished and ready to go.  Very nice.  VERY nice.
