Counters!

December 20, 2008

Today our countertops were installed.  The whole process was complete in less than two hours.  Once the counters were in we had a plumber come by to hook up the sink, garbage disposal, dishwasher, and stove.  Unfortunately he wanted WAY too much money ($700!).  The whole job can’t be that difficult – the pipes and drain have already been run to the inside of the cabinet.  They just need to be hooked up!  So tomorrow I am going to try my hand at a little plumbing.  Hey, how hard can it be?

I built this breakfast bar.  If it is strong enough to hold me it should be strong enough to support the granite countertop.

It is a wondeful feeling to finally have counters and cabinets after two months without.
