I think we should keep in mind that building "earth friendly" and building on a low budget aren't always mutual goals. Formica makes a very sanitary and usable countertop that is very affordable, especially if you can get a hold of those prefabbed chunks. We can get those really cheap here at an outlet place. I would imagine its not a very earth friendly product, though. So, there's a whole heirarchy of questions. Which is more earth friendly, formica or concrete, or in fact if you live somewhere where rock has to be hauled several hundred miles, is it really all that earth friendly? Also, what about those poured fake marble sinks for your bathroom? How would that compare to buying a metal sink and installing it into some type of concrete, formica, or tile countertop? I find all this very confusing. vicki in arkansas At 06:50 PM 10/25/01 -0500, Frances Grill wrote: >Not that I really care to get involved in this discussion(it is humorous >enough without my input), but the cost of AZ.
