DCP03499.JPG (70428 bytes)    March 9, 2006 - Thursday - Today Trisha from Contour Countertops came by to make the templates for our counter tops.  We couldn't be happier with our decision to use Contour.  They are one the of most professional outfits we have ever done business with.  The cabinets must all be permanently installed before asking Trisha to stop by, and making sure they are level is job one.  Not only must the cabinets be installed, but the corbels for our bar must also be installed.  Here you can see Trisha working on the template for the bar.  She uses what looks like corrugated plastic to make the templates.  As you can imagine, the job of the templater is possibly the most important job in a counter shop.  If she screws up and the job calls for quartz or granite, it could be a real costly mistake!  Thanks goodness she is one of the best in the business!  Speaking of quartz countertops, we wanted something high end but different from all the home we see with granite.  To that end we chose the Zodiac product line made by DuPont.  We chose the "Lunar Pearl" color for the bar and the kitchen counters, and the "Cloud White" for the bathrooms.  Quartz counters are typically easier to maintain than granite and because they are nonporous quartz is much more immune to bacteria growth than granite.  Check out the website with the link above for more benefits.

DCP03505.JPG (93363 bytes)    March 9, 2006 - Thursday - A very good friend of the company's and a jack of all trades when it comes to building and construction, Dale Erickson lends a hand every now and again.  He cut our wonderfully wide window sills out of solid hemlock.  Since we want to show the natural color of the wood, we finish the window sills in Polycrylic by Minwax, which is a water based, clear protective finish.  This picture shows two of the window sills in the dining area.  Since we don't want any nail holes in our beautiful sills, we glue them down with Liquid Nails.
