Today I got a VERY pleasant surprise; the counter tops are here! The shop came out and "templated" on Monday. Normally they take 2 weeks, but since things in construction are a little slow, they came in 3 days! Hooray! They are made of quartz, a mix of resin and natural stone, and, they are beautiful! I think I may have a working kitchen within the next week or so - very exciting!!!
Here is my gorgeous sink, big enough to bathe grandbabies in. I thought about getting a big, cool, farmhouse style sink, but I have this fear of the silverware falling in the garbage disposal, so I have a separate section for that!
