How much to pay stone fabricator

posted by: cabalist on 07.07.2009 at 04:53 pm in Kitchens Forum

We are working on finalizing our kitchen plans (as you might have read in another post) and I have started talking to stone fabricators. My parents have a beautiful slab of soapstone that has been sitting in their basement for years and I want to see if it would make for an economical solution to our need for new counter tops.

How much should I pay a stone fabricator, per square foot or whatever, to give it a honed finish, slightly ease the edge/nose, and come out and make a template to cut the pieces to?

Personally, I say no sink is too big. If you can afford the plumbing (financially and logistically), go for whatever kind of huge sink floats your boat. One thing to consider is the ergonomics of the depth -- how deep is too deep for you to comfortably reach in to work?

No experience with kids in sinks, just cats, so I leave that to other able forum members. But it seems like children do get bigger rather quickly, so they won't be lost in there for long. :-)

Me, I've been lusting after the big slate sink linked on Craigslist, below:
