I got the call last week that the counter material had arrived at Rocky Mtn Stone and they would be ready for installation Monday. Woo Hoo!! I have been thinking about this day for a year...literally.
Here's what the kitchen looked like before:

The installers only had one little problem when putting the counter in its final resting place. Because the templating is so exact and we live in a 100yr. old home, we had to temporarily remove the outlet on the far wall. They didn't have even a 1/4 inch of wiggle room. Once the electricity was cut and the outlet removed, it was no problem at all. Can I tell you how great it was to have a professional doing the work? AMAZING!! I felt a little guilty for not helping (even though I wouldn't have had anything to offer).
In a few minutes the kitchen was already looking like this:
I'm in LOVE...

The plumber comes Thursday morning. Next on the list, back splash and wrapping up the final details.
I can't believe it!
