The floors are being sanded today and will receive the first coat of stain. Tomorrow the workers will buff up the first coat and apply coat #2. After everything is finished in the kitchen, they'll come back and apply a final 3rd coat. Hopefully it matches nicely to the existing hardwood floors that it will border.
I found a picture on the internet of a slab of Sucuri granite that looks identical to the slabs we have on hold at the granite yard.
