Thanks guys, it really is like having a new house. If the drywall is done today, then I'll hop right on the painting (at least the stuff high up. The rest of the floor has to come up in the kitchen, pull the carpet, remove 6 billion staples that hold the padding down and put the cable into the wall behind the TV. Build island, move heat and it'* flooring time.

I did the kitchen in my last house. Built a island. I then made my own marble counter top. HUGE mess, but turned out nice. I really don't want to do that again.

I'd love to do the counters at this time, no budget though. Going to do something in the meantime for the island countertop.

Yesterday was the final drywall sanding. I cleaned for 7-8 hours and got nearly all the housework for the week plus the cleanup done.

Done the countertops both ways and know the pain and mess Dan. Takes some practice to use a file against the top and the trim face. Also did alot of warranty work for modular houses with messed up counters. Not by choice, but you take the good with the bad w/contracts. Premade is definitely the way to go. I sure is one of those things that people that do it day by day make look so easy to do.

Are you going cultured marble or Formica Bill. My house came with Formica. Now 11 YO and one of the things Mrs V wants redone w/ the marble. Like the pink bathroom I am slowly gearing up for it. It'* all odd sized including the island bar and I figure to hit the easy button and go to Lowes and have it made to order. That with the whole house laminate flooring looks to put off my plans for a new sedan another year....snifle

No one standard Bill, head to Lowes. But certainly something to consider. They can help you decide on the cabinet/counter sizes. If your going to custom build the bottom, it would be most economical to do it around a top that'* premade in a size stocked or ready to ship.
