Well, they got the 'hardy back' (or whatever they call it) installed today. It's what the ceramic tile will be applied to.
Also ran into our first 'major' glitch. Seems that the larger hinge on the Oval leaves a somewhat undesirable gap in the back of the counter. I really had no 'problem' with it, but Chris said it looked like SH*T and would fix it. They will build a shelf to go around the hole and cover it up.
We are at the point of intalling the tile, the side facings, the plumbing, electrical and then the doors. The facings will either be brick or slate. I've got to flip a coin. As soon as I flip over the price, I'm sure I'll make a decision. The tile will match whichever facing I end up with.
