Once the cabinets are installed (actually affixed to the walls), the exact measuring can take place for the countertops. We had a last-minute change in the material for our kitchen and bathroom countertops, so those of you who read our earlier post on the great granite saga, will be surprised when I present our new choice in a future blog post. For now, I just want to talk about what Steve from Surface EnCounters, who this week performed his 877th field measure in seven months, did at our house! This process is high tech. He used a laser camera and an electronic tablet make the measurements precise and easy to apply to the slab(s) of stone. I was happy to be there for this event, because we made some important choices during the measuring, such as the radius of the corners, the size and shape of the backsplashes, and the placement of certain countertop features. Since the kitchen granite will be the crowning jewel of the house, it’s gotta be just right!
