#sweetpeajamesg Sorry about your sink issues--don't you hate it when you find these important things out after the fact, when you really should have been told beforehand?
I hesitate to weigh in on whether the 5" strip is necessary in front of your sink, just because I'm not there and I don't really know. (But I've love to hear from other HOUZZERS on this one, especially people who do stone fabrication.)
If you're serious about wanting a copper sink, try Masterpiece sinks. I know they do custom work ( http://www.masterpiecesinks.com/pages/custom.html ). You might also want to consider a marble or soapstone sink. Either one of these can be made to order, and may not take as long to fabricate as the copper. We just had 2 soapstone sinks made locally for a client. They were about 30 x 20 x 10, farmhouse style, and cost our client about $800 each. Since they were made to order, we got to specify the size, the drain location, the thickness and rake of the front panel, and so on. (You may think that marble wouldn't work as a kitchen sink, but the honed finishes work fairly well.)

#achamilton59 It sounds like you are in the middle of an exciting project!
The countertop in this photo is Emporador Dark Marble, polished, with a 2.25" double ogee edge detail. It looks beautiful in the photo, it's true, but as I've mentioned in other replies on this subject, please talk to your stone fabricators about the challenges of marble countertops before deciding to put them in your kitchen.
In your case, too, I'm concerned that this color might not work since you already have a dark granite (Black Galaxy) on the island. As a general rule, I prefer to use an engineered stone on one surface and a natural stone on the other rather than mixing two natural stone countertops in the same room--but if I were using two natural stones, I would want them to contrast each other in color and texture.
Just reading your post, it sounds like you may be doing a lot of work in your kitchen, and you have a lot of questions. Maybe you could find a designer in your area who would be willing to work with you by the hour? Good luck.

The main kitchen sink is from Masterpiece Sinks. They have quite a few choices in apron designs, and they also have a choice of finishes, from Nickel Silver to Penny Copper to Bright Copper. I also like the fact that their finishes are not the live patinas that other companies do, but instead are 10-year guaranteed finishes.

You should check out www.signaturehardware.com, They have a great selection of apron sinks and they are very reasonably priced. Customer service is very helpful.

I know this is a Waterstone faucet, but could you tell me the exact finish of the metal? It is hard to tell.

In answer to your questions about Waterstone faucets and Waterstone's antique pewter finishes, the faucet in this photo is an example of Waterstone's antique pewter finish. What's nice about antique finishes in traditional spaces is that they mix well, I think, with other antique finishes--so you can have, for example, antique bronze, copper, and pewter in one room: the antiquing sort of blends them all together. (I'm not as keen on the "distressed" antique finishes from Waterstone, as the distressing consists of small dents and spots that look, well, distressed.)

Ok. Thanks so much. I am having a hard time making a decision. I just don't want to make any mistakes. The faucet is expensive.

Thanks for the response. Sorry to hear you have had troubles. We ordered ours from coppersinksonline, and although we have not yet installed it, it seems really beautifully made. 14 gauge and hammered all over, it weighs a small ton, I suppose that is a good thing.

Hi Katstan, thanks for your comment. Maybe they've tightened up their production procedures and have taken care of the issues we ran into. I would like to keep specifying their sinks because they are truly beautiful, and I love all the great apron patterns they offer. I'm sure your sink will work out great for you. Enjoy!

Sorry it has taken me so long to answer your question. As I mentioned in previous posts about this kitchen and others (and as Brittany correctly mentioned above), the sink is by Masterpiece Sinks. We used Masterpiece because instead of a "live" (ie, changing) surface on their metal patina sinks, they have a "lifetime" finish that is guaranteed not to change for 10 years. Our experience with them so far has been up and down: up because the finishes generally seem to last, down because the quality of the construction seems somewhat mediocre (top edges of sinks has been dented and uneven at receipt) and the quality of the construction process has been spotty (we have twice received the wrong apron design after waiting 4 weeks for manufacture). In addition we have had one finish failure, in which the metal surface coating of the inside of the sink wore off around the drain. In that case Masterpiece replaced the sink promptly, but the "remove & replace" installation work was a considerable headache, and it cost me $400-$500 for labor.

I work with granite and marble, this doesn't look like Emperador Dark Marble at all, I don't see the veins or white crystal patches.... This looks grainy just like granite would but I cant tell the color. One thing is for sure, one should think twice before deciding on having marble in the kitchen.

This looks a lot like two granites we are looking at both from Brazil. One is definitely the juparana beach color and the other is called chocolate bordeaux, or some kind of bordeaux.

Sorry it's taken so long to answer your question about the countertops. Neither surface in this kitchen is granite; the island is Jerusalem Limestone as Donna pointed out, and the cooking area that you are looking at in this photo is Emporador Dark Marble, Polished, with a 2.25" double ogee edge detail. They both look beautiful, it's true, but as I've mentioned in other replies on this subject, please talk to your stone fabricators about the challenges of marble countertops before deciding on surfaces such as these.
