The Marble is finally here

I was so looking forward to the installation of the marble and it was as interesting as I had thought it would be. Of course I wanted to see everything but I didn't want to get in anyone's way, I think I behaved. 

 What a before and after !!!! It was not easy for them to get this large run of counter out , it got a little damaged but I think there will be more than enough for our friends to use in their kitchen at least I hope so.
 The sink will set in place over the next couple of days , there is an epoxy holding it in place as well as the wood for now until it all sets.
 It is true it is so much brighter and lighter in here now . The feel of the marble is devine , it is heavenly.
 I will be going to pick up lots of felt pads tomorrow. We will use the laundry room sink until we get the kitchen sink hooked up .
 I love all the variation in the stone , there is so much to look at , veins, both grey and white and even a tiny sparkle. It has been sealed 4 times already but I will need to seal it monthly for the first year. Scratches can be easily sanded out with 220 sandpaper. It is honed.
 You can see in the right bottom corner the seam, the only seam in this very long run of counter , its clean and tiny and it doesn't bother me at all.
 This is my baking zone , I can see myself rolling out dough on occasion here, much easier on marble so I hear.
 Loving this deep large one bowl sink, we will need to have some plumbing done .
 I'm hoping to finish off the rest of the tiling , I am so glad I did so much of it ahead.
 I am going to get to the sanding of the lower cabinets ASAP, I can't wait for it all to be grey, light and airy.
I just need to pick out a fabulous tile for this area!!!!
The kitchen is in the final stretch now , a little plumbing , painting and grouting , we are so close , I love it so much already.
