The floors are done. The counters were installed today and are wonderful. Just what we wanted. Dark, to contrast against the white cabinets, but with some texture.
I keep walking into the kitchen and just turn circles looking at it. It took a lot of money and time, but it will be worth it. So much counter space. So bright and clean and fresh.
Pictures tomorrow. We took some but I haven't uploaded them to the computer yet. Tomorrow will bring appliances, backsplash, and a large number of smaller to dos.
