Good Questions: Soapstone Countertops & Contractors?

Hi there! Our long awaited kitchen remodel is set to begin in a couple of weeks and we still haven’t figured out what to do about countertops! We’re leaning towards soapstone, but it looks like many companies that sell soapstone are too far from me to do the installation. So I buy the soapstone, have it delivered, and then what? My question is if anyone in the NY area has recently installed soapstone and can recommend either contractors who can install, or local places that sell it. I’m in Westchester County. Also — am looking for local NY places that might be interested in salvage from our kitchen — we’ve got a tin ceiling (circa 1970), and some other items that I’d hate to see go straight to a dumpster. Thanks in advance! Sara
