I arrived at the house early Friday morning to find our cooktop had been installed. Not impressed. The back trim of the cooktop was hard up against the splashback tiles (that hadn't even been grouted yet) and there was a huge gap at the front. It looked horrible (see for yourself below) and wasn't what we were expecting at all. I quickly shot off a message to our supervisor to let him know I wasn't happy. He rang me this morning and said he agreed 100% and that it looked terrible and hadn't been installed to plan. So the stone guys are apparently at fault, again! They didn't cut the hole in the right place, and the electrician just installed where the hole was, understandably! Our supervisor has told the stone guys he wants the complete bench top replaced and the hole cut in the right place, however I am a little hesitant as I don't want to bring another different batch of granite in now. My Dad had a look at it yesterday and thinks there is a bit of room to play with so fingers crossed the cooktop can be moved forward slightly (any gap at the back is better than no gap) without having to replace the whole top.
In other news, I'm heading away this coming weekend to see my Husband - it's been 4 weeks since he left and we had thought the house would be ready by now and he would be down at the moment but that was not to be. So rather than wait another 2 or 3 weeks, I'm heading up Friday night and coming home Sunday night - just a really quick visit but a must-see visit!
