Oak & Broad is correct. The floor is 2 1/4" red oak. And yes - we love to field finish our floors to avoid the beveled edges!

how high is the hood above the range?

The range hood is +/- 30" above the range. Always check the specifications of your range/cooktop to make sure you are mounting the hood within the manufacturer's recommended height range.

The edge on the countertops is what our fabricator calls a "round over" it is a simple 1/4" radius at the top edge.

This project was completed several years ago so I'm not sure that the source still has them. If you are having trouble finding soapstone you can try for a charcoal grey or black slate. They would give the same matte finish. Good luck!

@jkkahnk - This was a new construction home so the hardwood is over framing. You would want to consult with your supplier on what their installation and warranty requirements are if you were to put it over existing concrete.

@kimparsons - The exterior is James Hardie's "Iron Gray".

They look like Oak. Have your flooring finisher look at the picture and see if they can make you a few samples to review.

what is the cost per foot for a concrete counter top and what limitations does it present if any compared to granite and quartz?
June 23, 2014 at 12:39am

We have found that the cost per square foot can vary widely depending on the fabricator. Be careful, because sometimes the less expensive fabricators are a "get what you pay for" company. There is maintenance involved. A good sealer is a key component to concrete countertops. Make sure that you know exactly what they are using and how to take care of it.
