Support pole through granite countertop??
We are remodeling our kitchen and adding an addition on to the house. We will need a support beam to span the width of the house once we knock the back out to support 2nd story. We will need a support pole somewhere along this span. Rather than stick it in the middle of the room (the room will end up being 22x24'), our contractor said it would look better if it ran though the granite on our island. He explained how he would do it, but I can't remember how, and he is out of town now.
Can this be done? How?
