by request

I am interrupting the triplet saga to do a specially-requested post. Seems that I may have left a few of you hanging about the state of our kitchen construction. Mr. Endter especially, this post is for you.

It was a bit of a long convoluted installation, but the good news is that (1) I will not bore you with the details; and (2) it was finally finished last Friday afternoon with the new gas cooktop being hooked up. Just in time to cook for the shearing crew on Sunday, thank goodness! I think we had around 25 people for brunch, plus the crew of teenagers the night before, so it would have been pretty ugly without it.

Oh, you want to see what it looks like? (click on the pictures if you want to see them bigger)

We are very very pleased with how it turned out. Little hard to tell from the pictures, but the quartz countertops match the already-existing backsplash, cabinets, walls, floors, stone fireplace, etc. etc. absolutely perfectly and are supposedly indestructable. Even better, they hide crumbs and water rings masterfully. And OF COURSE I had to clean off tons of junk, already, so we could take a picture.

We will be back to our regular programming tomorrow, with (hopefully) lots of cute baby lamb pictures if the subjects cooperate.


  1. Love, Love, Love it!! I know how hard decisions like this can be. There are so many, many choices out there in colors, edges,...... You did a great job of making it all come together. Enjoy it even when it gets that lived it look two minutes after the clean up phase.

  2. Glad to see that you got that accomplished in record time. I am impressed!

    Which quartz countertops did you go with? Our son is looking at that for his place. And there really are too many choices :*)

  3. Woohoo!! It looks so nice!

    We finally picked out our granite and I think the guy is coming this weekend to make the templates.

  4. Looks great, Kris! I'm amazed by how quickly it came together...WOW! Love those continuous grates -- nice!
