Granite was a big one for me - I was really worried about the slab we were going to get because there is SO much variation in the St. Cecelia granite. Luckily, we got a slab that was very creamy and not at all gold or dark. I really like it. It looks great with the Butterscotch Glaze cabinets.
Hopefully this is also the last time we will have to visit the house without heat. It was really cold on Saturday and we could only stay a few minutes with the kids. Apparently they can't do the hardwood floors without heat so they should have it turned on early this week.
There was something that was disappointing to me, and I'm struggling with whether or not to mention it. We got upgraded cabinets in the bathrooms which have brushed nickel hardware. We assumed (silly us) that the plumbing fixtures would match. But they installed the shiny chrome faucets instead. It looks really weird, having 2 different metals going on in the bathroom. I seem to remember my SR telling us that it would all match - after all, I think if it was not going to match, she would have up-sold us on the fixtures...
Anyway, I don't like it. I know it can be fixed by us eventually, but still. Should I raise it as an issue even though we don't have any paperwork on it? Or let it go?
Here are some pics -I did some of the bonus room for those who requested them!
The kitchen with the dishwasher, granite installed. The cabinets on the island need a lot of attention :(
The downstairs half bath. They have installed the hardwood already.
