House Building - Yellow River Granite is Installed!

The installers came late yesterday....4:30 ish....and we only saw a little of the installation after work.  We went on home and EngineerHubby couldn't wait until today...he ran back out at 10pm to take photos.....we will get more photos in the daylight but I couldn't wait posting these.  

It is just as I imagined it would be.....Yellow River Granite was worth the money (and chatting with the installers, found out why it was so expensive...being lighter in color, it is mostly sand and very fragile....they were super careful....)...

"Booking" the granite means that as it goes up the backsplash, the movement flows together.....we had to purchase 4 slabs to make sure there was enough to allow for the piecing that was required.  Most folks do not put full granite backslashes (I'd guess mostly due to cost)...but I love the look and can't imagine what tile I could have found to not compete with this stunning stone.
