I just had a five minute conversation with Achilles and told him that we could give up on trying to reuse the Corian counter tops. We're going to go with Caesarstone (which is what our architect recommends and also was the recommendation of Monday's countertop guy). Achilles will get quotes.
I also reminded him to give us the quote for replacing the kitchen floor. I told him we're inclined to do it. Off the top of his head he thought it would be in the region of $8,000 to replace. Usually when I talk to Achilles, we come out of it with an additional $10,000 bill, so this is a better than the usual result.
