We replaced the counter top and added a 2" square mosaic tile as a back splash. The range hood and microwave had power cords draped across the back splash. We looked after running new lines and hard wiring the rang hood, as well as adding a receptacle so the microwave could be plugged in. This very warm and friendly couple insisted on feeding me lunch, while I was working there. And the wife had a bit of a thing about smudged and dirty eyeglasses, so she constantly had me giving her my glasses to clean. It was an entertaining few days.
