Ginger and Max cut the plywood for the counters a few weeks ago and we've been living with them while we decided on tile. She and William cut the Hardibacker and installed it while Max and I were sanding, staining and sealing the trim for the counters. There are no pictures of that :(
Cutting out the opening for the kitchen sink got a little tricky. Maybe, just maybe, we should have measured and cut that outside, but as it was we went through several power tools and handtools before we got the opening cut completely. The rounded corners were a bear! If you are installing a sink, get a self-rimming model. We were reusing our old sink and while it's self-rimming, it is also aluminum and has to have clips under it. Much harder to install.
