Great! The Granite gets here…

5 May

Today was a big day!  Our granite has arrived and is being installed.  This has become a really high-tech process.  The guy came to the house to do the template and used a machine that electronically measures and calculates the radius of the cuts by touching the areas against the wall and at the edge of the cabinet base with an electronic wand.  The machine then stores the measurements and translates it into a CAD drawing and from that they produce the template.  I proofed the template last week and today it is here.  We have a really big island in our kitchen measuring 9 x 5 feet.  It took a complete slab of granite to cover the island.  Getting that into the kitchen however was quite a feat of strength.  You know they move these things around at the granite yard with cranes and lifts.  The company sent three crews and a supervisor here this morning to deliver and install.   Eleven men gathered here to heft the granite top from the truck to the dolly, into the house, down the hall and finally onto the island base.  Here’s some pictures.  I must say that they were a super professional crew and definitely know their stuff.  I will add them to my list of preferred contractors.  Crowe Custom Countertops are the best!  Here you can see the crew bringing in the granite and some after shots.
