Kitchen, completed

The counters are in, the backsplash is done, the tile is grouted, and the caulk is cured. We probably need to replace our travertine tiles, but that can happen later. We’ll call it good!

Counter Progress

I’ve been trying to finish the counters. I’ve missed Christmas, but maybe I’ll make the new year?

Alex and I did some demolition to remove the tile counters:

Things went pretty well: the concrete board came up in pretty large pieces, and it wasn’t held by all that many screws. Installation went pretty well, too:

After a Christmas reprieve, I cleared the granite tiles off the desk area, and it was time to place the recasted 7′ piece. I was worried having broken the first casting, so Alex, Rebecca and I were very careful in moving and placing it. It arrived in one piece and I’ve already applied the sealant to it:

Polished Peninsula

I’ve gotten the second largest piece polished up. (This one is destined to be the peninsula.) Once it’s dry tomorrow, I’ll dust, seal and install it. Here’s a close-up of the pattern.Peninsula Pattern Detail
