We finally got our granite installed the day before Christmas Eve. The installation itself had a few bumps along the way, but we did get them worked out. I was hoping to post pictures before now but with the busyness of Christmas and wanting to spend time with my family, I didn’t quite get around to it. I do absolutely love it though and am very glad about my choice. I could have gone with something fancier, but I wanted a more neutral color scheme to work from. Here are a few shots of the kitchen with the granite.
The way they made the template for the granite was completely fascinating. I had never seen anything quite like it. The template person used a system of dots to make the template. He took several photographs of the dots and ran this on a specific computer program to get exact dimensions of the granite, even taking into account uneven walls. The process is called photogrammetry.
We were able to test out the functionality of the kitchen a few times over the last several days. It is a million times better than it was. Two people can work in it very comfortably. My daughter, Lauren, and I made homemade wonton soup and General Tso’s chicken from scratch yesterday and didn’t bump into each other once. The second sink has come in very handy as well and I am so glad Patrick suggested it. It was an added luxury but I love it.
