Thanks Viking and Winds, Yes it is Copper, being the Electronics guy I am, I love copper. Besides, I gave my wife 6 months to pick out a tile backsplash, she dithered too long. I had seen some faux copper (Plastic) ones that were ok but I dont like plastic so I headed on down to a high end roofer I have worked with and had him break the pieces from a great big old 2 ton roll he had kicking around for fabricating copper roofs. It looks great, no maint and the wife finally said it was OK, it can stay...
I saved enough using repurposed wood that I could afford to do Granite countertops. Its an oxymoron to handle an 800lb piece of finished stone with Kid Gloves, OMG that was heavy!
All that said, I will never, ever do another kitchen as long as I live! Is a real challenge even though Im a better than fair carpenter, Cabinet making is an art and making them fit in a house hat isnt close to square or plumb is a real nightmare.
