In the country kitchen, I am curious when they talk about low ceilings, how low those actually are. Are the bottoms of the beams still 8' or are they less?

Re: supporting the 2" thick soapstone countertop on the island. A steel frame and plate steel was used to support the stone. So, if you add up the weight of the 2" stone and the steel plate etc, you have a tremendous load on the underlying floor and joists. I would imagine that most floors could not support this much weight. Any comments? We are planning to install a 10' long island with solid surface counter and are trying to figure out how to support our floors.
