Well, our kitchen/family room remodel (or renovation) is nearing completion. Today they textured the drywall and a guy worked on staining the cabinets. Two guys stopped by to measure for the countertops, which will be Silestone in Brazilian Brown (the picture on the Silestone website hardly does it justice). They will send off the template […]
