STEP 1 - Find or borrow a tape measure, or spend $5 at any hardware or big-box store.

STEP 2 - Measure the "length" (end-to-end), and "depth" (wall to edge) of each "Area".*


*An Area is a counter section that forms a square or a rectangle. For L-shaped counters, one leg is Area "1", and the other leg is Area2” (like the drawing above).  


Just measure to the 1/4 inch. You don't have to be too precise.

Extend angled areas to form them into either rectangles or squares (see the drawing just above).

STEP 3 - Length x depth of each Area = square inches. Divide by 144 to get sq ft (SF).


HERE'S AN EXAMPLE:

Island 84-1/4" x 36" = 3,033 square inches, divided by 144 = 21.06 square feet. EASY, YES?

Add-up the square-footage for all Areas, and multiply by our labor cost of $28 per SF.

You've just priced the basic fabrication and installation for your stone-counter project.
