Island in the way???

Here's a nice way to solve that kitchen island that is always in the way.

I'm gonna get one of those! Oh, wait; my house is on a slab.

Looks pretty pricey and my first thought was that I would have designed in a retractable cover of some kind vice the cheesy carpet squares.

You know there's 4 posts in the basement for joist support. You're right, how do you address the surface? Do you use tile (viable), or hardwood (not knife friendly). Yeah, ma, raise that island and wipe the mud off the top before you cut that celery, OK???

I'm hoping they don't have a dog who likes to lay on the carpet squares when it's retracted.
