During this time of giving thanks, we want to say a special Thank You to all of you for choosing Jackson Stoneworks, and wish you all a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday. Our design team will be spending the holiday weekend with their families, but our Stoneyard will be open on Friday and Saturday with limited staff on hand to assist anyone who wants to visit.
In this special Thanksgiving issue of Lunch and Learn, we take a closer look at the unique kitchen storage features chosen by local customer John Petrich, we learn why what was old is now new again in updating a bathroom, we take a look at a Kohler tub to help you with your update, we talk to Haile resident Mary Coll about her new kitchen, and we share a deliciously simple new recipe for champagne-roasted turkey.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

General manager, Gordon Weidler, interviewed John Petrich on his recent kitchen remodel with Jackson Stoneworks. Mr. Petrich was first introduced to Jackson Stoneworks through an oversized backsplash he needed to cut in order to fit his kitchen dimensions. After searching for a local Gainesville business, he was referred to Jackson Stoneworks. Tyler, Jackson Stoneworks’s Owner, cut the backsplash for free. His gracious actions resulted in Mr. Petrich choosing Jackson Stoneworks to remodel his entire kitchen- tiles, cabinets, ceiling, and granite countertops. In his words Jackson Stoneworks produced “everything but the appliances and the tomatoes”.
Gordon then inquired about the experience Mr. Petrich had with Jackson Stoneworks. He commended Jackson Stoneworks on being efficient and timely. He worked primarily with Brooks and Bill, who oversaw the entire installation process. During the planning stage of his purchase he worked with Nicole, the in house interior designer, and had contributions from Tyler. Nicole’s focus magnified the aesthetics of the kitchen. She recommended having the cabinets lowered in the kitchen to create an ambient lighting effect.
When asked what his favorite kitchen feature was, he responded the pantry. Prior to the remodeling, he did not have pantry space. His kitchen was crowded by cabinetry and countertops. Tyler recommended they trim the cabinetry and countertops and install a space-preserving pantry into the wall.
The interviewed concluded by Mr. Petrich saying he would and already has recommended Jackson Stoneworks to his friends and family. In fact, Jackson Stoneworks completed a kitchen and bath project for a family he referred.
