Slate – a natural Maine product.
I had always thought my final countertops would be made of granite (also a Maine product). However, Dave thinks it just looks to “hard” and commercial. So, we have been investigating soapstone to match the Tulikivi. But, I just came across something that I really like – slate!!!!!!!!
It is extracted just an hour or so from our lot and looks very interesting. Check out:
We are also on the lookout for my bathtub – I plan on soaking away the years eventually (and pounds??). This place looks interesting:
The plan is to take Friday off – rain is forecast, so it shouldn't hold Dave back on any work. Off we go to checkout slate and tubs. I'll let you know if we finalize any selections.
BTW – still no phone or internet and the walls are postponed until next week. We still have electricity and footers though.
