You’ll just need temporary supports (2x legs) while the concrete is curing. Kristi wears me to a frazzle with all of this work she does! I am so anxious to see how the white countertops, green cabinets and tan & white striped floor all look together. I may have missed it but my hesitation with doing this at my own home was the weight it puts on the floors, etc. But really, people think of concrete as being so very heavy, but it actually weighs just a bit less than a piece of granite of the same size and thickness. My one question is how do you get those edge pieces off after you’ve poured the concrete? The only parts that remain are the two small pieces that form a 90-degree angle around the front edge of the cabinets. Even if you were to get on the floor and look up at the countertop overhang, it’ll just be concrete. I was wondering how in the heck that would snap off, so it makes sense that it gets left there. Then they go back over it and fill in the voids with a slightly different color for some variation. We left the plastic in place through the pour, staining, and sealing processes. I think, as you said, the trick is in the cuts and also you do need someone with strength to help you. Would the backerboard be enough to hold it, or does it involve another kind of framing? It would probably be wise to support it with legs or corbels or some other kind of bracket, like you generally see on a breakfast bar that overhangs a countertop. You could run out and get them lunch, etc, and you could make sure the laughter keeps flowing if things should get a little rough. I don’t recall you mentioning if you have to have extra support under your cabinets when having concrete counters. At the end of your post you say all you have to do is ‘lather and rinse’? I can secondly understand how excited you are, given that we’ve been through multiple kitchen renovations.
