Pacific NW soapstone -- yards and installers
Calling all Pacific NW people interested in soapstone!
I picked up the following information from some previous threads and made some visits. I'd love some more places to go to look at slabs and I need to know about fabricators with soapstone experience.
Casa Bella -- Portland -- currently have one unnamed variety and a polished kind (shown on website). Sample (of some dark green veiny kind) doesn't match what they have (but it's nice). Don't seem to know much about soapstone except that it scratches. They wet it for you with saliva. http://www.casa-bella.com/index.html
Intrepid -- Portland, Bend, Vancouver -- http://www.intrepidrocks.com/sitetools/product.php
Have one green, one dark grey (with veins), "anthracite" -- (see post about it!), and Pietra del Cardoso. Sprayed it with water.
Oregon Tile and Marble -- Portland -- not on their website but they say that they have Pietra del Cardoso (and call it soapstone).
Teresina (Northern California) -- send stone as far North as Seattle; I don't know who installs it. http://blog.teresinasoapstone.com/about/
I would love some assistance!
