Stone Installation Begins

Our tile and stone installer had an open day so he came and installed the stone on the wall of the island. So except for the base board the island is complete. The stone product is real stone made by RoxProducts. The stone is pre-cut and comes in ready-to-mount 6x12 pieces. The same stone will surround our fire place. That is scheduled to be completed in the next few weeks.

Tile and Electrical

During the last week in January we had the tile installed including the kitchen back splash as some tile inside the island. Today, the electrician came in and did his final touches by installing plates, switches and electrical outlets over the tile. He also installed the undercounter lighting which is very cool. We have dimmable switches on a few of the ceiling lights and now with the undercounter lighting we have so many lighting options and it's plenty bright when you need it, too.

So the only things left are two replacement cabinet handles and one custom pull out drawer being built for us. The kitchen should be DONE within the next week or two!

On the fireplace, we got a call that the stone is in. So I will try to pick that up next week and arrange to have the tile guy back out to install the stone facade.

We are enjoying the new kitchen and we're begging to settle into it.
