I'm sorry, but as a general rule we do not make the cost of our projects public. I can tell though that the per square foot cost is over $450.

Corian. I believe we laminated two pieces together to achieve the desired thickness that we wanted.

To start, I think this was a really terrific idea book by Becky. I can't comment on why a particular professional may have been reluctant to give away dimensions, but I can tell you why we sometimes are. Often times, especially in the case of stairways, landings, and railings, there are code restrictions that may vary from one geographical location to another. What might be perfectly fine in one part of the country may not be allowed in another. If we give advice on dimensions and something goes wrong or if the project is not built properly I suppose some people might feel that we could be held liable in some way.

No hesitation, I don't have them to share. Forcing them to post them is a ridiculous notion to me. Sometimes I think that the pros on Houzz give so much great information away for free that users come to expect that they should reveal every detail of every project. If they sat around and answered Houzz questions for free all day, they'd all go out of business.

There are not one-size-fits-all solutions. I highly recommend hiring a pro to help you bring your vision to life. If you're not sure i something will fit/is possible, most come give estimates for free, so you can find out during that part of the process on your own project.
