Funny Renovating Story (at least it’s funny now that it is fixed!)

We are renovating our 1920’s home. We have been renovating it for quite some time. Here is what the kitchen used to look like. It was downstairs in another part of our house – we moved it to an open floor plan that looks out over our living room.
Before:

Here is the new kitchen (not QUITE done yet, but almost there)

Notice the sink in front of him. It is supposed to be top mount sink.
SOOO imagine my dismay when I returned home and found this:

Incorrectly installed sink
Incorrectly installed topmount sink

— The counter-top is Waverton Cambria quartz – looks like marble but is 99% non-permeable so you don’t have to seal it and it doesn’t stain!

— Cabinets are linen white Benjamin Moore

Not good for the quartz counter top that has a seam right in the middle of the sink:

Notice Gap between counter top and cabinet base

The moral of this story is DON’T INSTALL A TOP-MOUNT SINK AS AN UNDERMOUNT SINK!

They had to come back and re-do the whole thing and pay for a new sink!
