Very large island

We did this island in one piece, and it was a beast! It took 12 people to move it in and put it in place. It has one integral sink and one under mount, 16' long and almost 5' wide 3'' thick. It weighed about 1500 lbs. and was not in the least bit fun to move!

    Becky, they better hope so. I think the cabinets would give out before the floor. Its been several months and the builder hasnt mentioned having to replace anyones floor so they must be ok.
