More work on granite

Getting stone around the posts has been tricky. We decided to make a backsplash in front of the posts and place a 6" continuous shelf above the backsplash that is cut to fit around each post. That way, if a cut is not exact, or if something breaks, a huge slab is not lost.

Here is a picture of the east-side shelf in place, complete with a preview of the red onyx that Remy is planning to install behind the range hood and chimney.
