Granite arrives: One step closer to having a usable kitchen again

Posted By on April 21, 2017

Here’s a quick slideshow of photos updating the granite countertops to our kitchen remodel after they were installed this past week. Thankfully every measurement was “spot on” and the install went without a hitch (the photos make them look a lot darker than they really are).

A couple photos show a sample of the new contemporary counter height stool that arrived. After about an hour of assembly, I hefted it up from the workshop to see what it would look like (it is heavy!). We like the look and comfort, with a high back and thicker seat, and yet the neutral gray color blends well with the stainless steel appliances and does not overly stand out.

Both Brenda and I are happy with the look and functionality … as well at the excellent work in the cutting and polishing of the granite slabs; we are looking forward to cooking and eating a few meals back in the kitchen again.
