We are really happy that we don’t have to have a fence around our home. The only downfall we can see so far is that wildlife always and I mean always ventures into our yard to taunt our dogs.

The Story of Soapstone

As the granite countertop trend continues to slowly ebb in high-end homes, other alternatives are starting to pick up in popularity. Soapstone is a natural material, a metamorphic rock that is composed primarily of talc with varying amounts of chlorite, micas, amphiboles, carbonates and other minerals. It has been known for centuries for its ability to retain heat (for example, all of our original hearthstones in the farmhouse are made of soapstone). At Green Mountain Soapstone they are unsurpassed in quality, and the largest soapstone supplier to the USA and Canada. They are at booth 133A at the Times Union to help with more information about Soapstone in your home.
