About 15 years ago, Jean hired a designer to perform a full kitchen renovation and decided to temporarily move out of her Steveston home while the work was being done. When she returned home, the kitchen renovation had been completed and she was a bit disappointed about the look and style of her island. Jean loves to bake and with the second tier on the island, that left very little space to do all her baking. She put up with this island for years and one day while her new Oak Railing was being installed, she asked Gary from 2 Honest Carpenter Ltd. for some suggestions on how to alleviate the island frustrations that she had been experiencing. Options were soon discussed on how to provide a larger baking surface and together, we visited a countertop showroom to look at samples. Jean's decision was quickly made - a polished Quartz countertop is what she envisioned for her kitchen Island! The Quartz slab was ordered and when it arrived at the showroom, she was able to choose what corner of the oversized slab she wanted for her kitchen. While the Quartz slab was being cut to size and prepared in the showroom shop, modifications began on the kitchen island to accept her new polished countertop.
