Missed it by ... this ... much !
Somehow our island grew a few inches from the plans to what was actually measured when templated for countertops...
We were almost, nearly, exactly 2 slabs on the plan.
Got the call from the countertop guys that the sizes weren't adding up for the cuts and that our waterfall side would need to have a seam 2" from the floor ... or we could try to find a 1/2 slab. Hanstone Specchio White is not the most "seam friendly" pattern, so ... time to get the checkbook out again.
To their credit, they did find someone in a similar situation and we were able to just buy the 1/2 slab ... but ... argh. Our countertop has gone from $4k (well, in my budget dreams at least) to $6k (had to have the waterfall) to $7k (larger 16" overhang and miter edges... I mean, we're already spending so much, let's do it right...) and now $7.5k.
So one more little hiccup - but the good news is that we're still getting counters installed tomorrow ... so tons of pics will be coming over the weekend :)
...ending today's rant. Time for wine ... oh, wait, need to run the LED lights tonight. Electrical first, then wine :)
