Our New Sink
(and kitchen counter)

We (well, Diana, actually) decided to put new countertops in the kitchen. We got the money from our tax refund and like to do some work on our house anyway, so we did the kitchen this time. 

I wanted a second floor, but we were about fifty thousand dollars short of the money needed for that project so countertops it was.  After exhaustive research, we decided that Silestone was the answer instead of granite. 

Here are some photos of the installation. If we had to do it again, we would, except we would not use Home Depot Expo. They were terrible project managers and I resent them making any money at all from the job. Don't use them. They suck.

It almost looks like a kitchen again. We have to wait three more weeks for the stone.
