What Were They Thinking? Stupid Placements
I mentioned this in my "pee" thread but wanted to start a new one where I can post a photo and better explanation. We're building a town home and realized that three of the placements make no sense, as you can see in the photo:
1) Toilet paper is under towel rack in a position where wet towel will always be on it, despite there being plenty of room to attach it to the cabinet next to the toilet. Photo is from the model.
2) Hand towel rack is positioned so wet towel will hang over outlet and light switch, despite a completely bare wall on the other side (also from model).
3) Rack by washer is hung so low that you can't hang clothes because of washer below. This one was taken in my house. There's no equivalent in the model, but it looks like the top should be flush with the top of cabinets.
I want these things changed, but the builder wants to charge me, despite the fact that they'll all interfere with livability and the fact that the interior is not painted yet. I think they should be changed because, to be frank, they're idiotic and shouldn't be like that in the first place. Yes, the model is like that for two of them, but I never even saw the toilet paper because the towels literally cover it completely.
So am I justified in digging in my heels and fighting to get these fixed without charge? If not, do I insist that if they go by the model, then I want my doorbell move from it's current wall to the place where it's at in the model? I bought a hanging chime doorbell because of that, but they randomly put it on a different wall in a spot where it's over a door frame. So if things have to be like the model, fair is fair, right?
Or am I just being way to freakin' picky?
