It’s been a long weekend! Yesterday was spend almost completely on the island. I had to lay down the backer board, try to square it all up to...something. I swear, nothing in this house is square. So I did my best. Actually, now something in this house is square. The island that I built. Square and level.

Anyway, it took longer than I wanted it to initially, so I did not manage to get to the plumbing or the side panels, which is a problem. I’ve got to get everything sorted out before the countertop people come to template tomorrow. So I’ll be headed home a bit early today.

One thing that I haven’t quite sorted out, though. Do I need to build any extra support over the dishwasher? Or is that something the stone installation people will have figured out and take care of?

Anyway, here’s the current status.
