We actually did this last November the week before Thanksgiving. What a day!!! Eric had put a cheap white counter top on as a temporary counter when the cabinets were installed. It did its purpose, but didn’t hold up very well. I had stressed about this day for many many months. We had bought two slabs of granite, cut back to back from the same quarry, so their color matched perfectly. The slab for the island was huge! Weighing in around 1500 pounds! I had to find 10 men who could all show up at the same time to help carry it in on the day we were installing it. From the driveway, around the corner to the porch. Up the stairs, and into the house. Then lift it and place it on the cabinets. Granite actually has a lot of flex in it, so keeping it from snapping while lifting and carrying it was a HUGE deal! It took about 2 hours from start to finish. Just to move it a few hundred feet. AMAZING group of men who gave up their Friday morning just to come and help me move this slab. I felt so blessed! My next post will be of the granite on and looking beautiful!
Heres a few before with the white countertop.
