I have been working rather slowly on my concrete counter tops that I mentioned in an earlier post. I have poured and finished most sections. I only have one section remaining. The final section is the one that will house the sink. I have been procrastinating because I am nervous about making it correctly.
The one piece that we have installed is a short section just beside our stove. It has been in place for about months and has weathered fine. This little section gets lots of traffic from cooking and as it is right by the door as you enter the kitchen. I hope to finish polishing the other pieces soon and get them installed.
I would like to have installed the other pieces by now but we have had a very busy last six months. My wife and I tend to work long hours and not spend much time at home that shouldn’t we shouldn’t be sleeping or reconnecting. Our busy lives got even busier last week when after a bad fall, my mother was rush to surgery and them rehab. While she is in rehab, my wife and I are taking care of her two adopted daughters. My little sisters are 5 & 7 and the never stop moving, talking, eating…..and most time consuming: needing attention. I have a new respect for parents and how to accomplish anything.
Hopefully we will install the other two large pieces this fall and maybe pour the final piece. I’ll update you guys as the slow progress happens!
