Part of the countertop came in today and we couldn't be more thrilled! Uba Tuba turns out to be a beautiful choice. The colors are just right with the floor tiles, the cabinets and the paint. The sink we chose for the island though is too big - and any sink (even just a bar size one) is going to be a nightmare to install. Our options were to let them do it in two pieces if we insisted on an undermount sink, switch to a smaller drop in sink, or bag the sink all together. So we've just decided to nix the second sink. Paul has been working on the tile floor in the hallway and the intersection of the two aisles looks beautiful. We made his day when we decided to do with straight 12x12 tiles in both hallways instead of the original diagonal plan. He's going to work our tiles from italy into the design on the wall under the window and will do the ceiling of the shower in 12x12s (which until today he didn't realize we wanted tiled.) Ross and Justin are working to hang the lights now - when I was there they had finished the front and were working on the patio area between the master bedroom and kitchen.
