Hearth Room -- Soapstone Countertops

When Chris and Julie married seven years ago, they combined more than silver and china - their combined family grew to six. They added one more and now have a houseful of kids ages 6-12. Last year, they downsized from their sprawling 1990's built house to a charming but smaller 1936 Cape Cod. They love the homey feel, but the kitchen and dining area just aren't working for the party of seven. The kitchen and attached family room were added onto the home in the 1980s. The kitchen is actually large, with a galley layout, but it seems a little disjointed. It has a small island separating it from the family room and a large nook that has a desk and prep sink. Also, the eating area isn't big enough for everyone to sit down for daily meals. So the plan is to reconfigure and reuse many of the existing elements while making everything larger and more functional for the family of seven. A template is made of the island for the granite countertop, then Paul helps our homeowners set soapstone countertops on the rest of the cabinets. With those in place, they get started tiling the backsplashes. A few decorative elements are added then the plus-size appliances and farm table are brought in to complete the transformation.
