Kitchen countertop update
Yesterday, Patrick, the contractor, finished laying and setting the granite tiles on the countertops. Today he came and checked the tiles for adhesion and shifting and was satisfied, so he cut and set the granite tile backsplash under the windows over the sink (no sink yet) and made it the same height along all the countertops, which looks better. (He did lots of cutting to make everything fit.) He also updated an electrical outlet that he had to remove to work around. And he put granite tiles on the bathroom countertop in the master bath. (We had some left over.) Tomorrow we'll get the sink installed and the tiles grouted. I'm really looking forward to that. Oh, and probably he'll add the wood edging then. I forgot to ask. And put the phone back. We won't be able to use the kitchen for a few more days; we've been using the sink and countertop in the utility room which is just off the kitchen and pantry. And we won't put up the curtains for about a week to be sure everything's nice and tight.
