Kitchen Countertop arrives

The stainless steel countertop for the kitchen arrived onsite today.  Fabricated using  Franke Kubus KBX160 undermount sink welded into the countertop.  The countertop is backed with a standard 40mm timber countertop to provide strength and rigidity.

The countertop was fabricated by Billy OGrady who works with a local metal fabricator Jeff McDonnell.  He made an excellent job of the welding especially considering that the Franke Sink was not specially designed for weld-in.

Once the kitchen units arrive and it is all fixed in place it’ll get a final clean & polish to bring it up to its full glory and we’ll publish some more photos.

BTW, the video of the house has been updated with extra footage added .. here and on the HomePage
