It's a continent!! - were the words from a friend when he saw the pic of the marble going in. I must say, it is rather large. The stone guys came this evening after the crews got finished with their regular installs as they needed everyone they had to muscle it into the house and then onto the cabinets. The result is reeeeally nice.


Gas company put in the meter this afternoon as well. Figured they would start the various appliances, but they don't so I walked Cassidy through starting up the water heater which essentially needed cycling several times to purge the lines and bring gas through the piping. Finally caught and she can now take a normal shower. If I had been in town, I would have cracked open a line and bled it, but that's not a smart thing for an inexperienced person. 
Used FaceTime on the phones to walk her through the several steps. So much easier with today's technology isn't it?

Stove needed purging as well but simpler as it doesn't shut off after not starting. The igniters keep firing until gas arrives.

When I get back Saturday, I'll get the furnaces started, and the fireplaces and we'll be a few steps closer to the end. Heat and hot water! Yay! Just in time for the change in weather!

Took them a long time to get from the street through the front door. Like 10 minutes. Yeah it's big.
Getting it laid down
Drilled for faucet. Faucet not set tight, but gives an idea of the final
Stove wall. Will get a tile back splash this weekend. Looks like they removed the top drawers for install.
Island from the other direction. You can glimpse the coffee/wine bar on the side of the fireplace.
