The excitement is building

Well, actually, for me, the excitement is in the planning. Yesterday was a big day in the Merillat Good Life Kitchen remodel process.

We rose early and drove up to Redford, Michigan to visit Brian Dawe at Great Lakes Granite and Marble. Our mission was to choose our slab of granite as well as our sink and faucet finish.

Great Lakes is a fascinating place! We learned a little bit about how granite is mined, how slabs are cut, saw them moving them about their warehouse. This is one of those places that you could spend an interesting day learning about an industry most people don’t come into contact with. But, alas, the cameras were rolling, so we had to move along.
