What is it with this Kitchen and disasters? This time it was the granite slabs, which cracked during fabrication. And then were recut incorrectly. And then an entire piece went missing.

And we won't even discuss the three walls that we had to saw into.

In any case, I've got a tile installer, a plumber, and the stone cutter wrapping everything up in The Kitchen today, and did I mention what that last guy did when he walked into the room for the first time? The guy who sees dozens of kitchens each week? The guy who was in too much of a hurry to make small talk?

He stopped dead in his tracks. Lowered his arms. And said, "Wow." Pause. "This is very nice."

So that made me kind of happy. Can't wait to share it with you.

What Sunny said!! I can't wait. Now the big question, will you be cooking for Thanksgiving in there or do you visit relatives?

This sounds like the kitchen from hell. Maybe you should get a Native American healer in there to purify it before you use it. There might be bad spirits under your house. Good luck, anxiously awaiting the pictures. Ann
