This was an exciting week! We got our countertops installed and our plumbing installed.
The counter tops are gorgeous. They are beautiful even in their natural state of gray. We went with a soapstone that is mined locally. We wanted a natural stone. We did a lot of research and soapstone seemed to fit our style the best. We will oil it because it naturally darkens on its own regardless, but it is so so pretty.
We also had a pot filler, our sink drain and faucet installed. We went with a satin chrome look - something that wouldn't show fingerprints but also not be overly shiny. We picked an old fashioned handle look for both.
The guys brought in each piece one by one. I took a picture of them bringing in the island. It took so many of them to lift it into the house and into place. They clapped for themselves when it was in place
