Who thinks having your vanity finish 6cm from your shower screen at one end and over a meter from the bath the other is a good idea?
Obviously the drafting department at Metricon do aaahhhhhhhh ahhhh and ahhh again.
Also the cabinet maker/installer also thinks that this looks nice, is practical and works well as he fitted it without questioning whether it was right.
Now let me explain. Had a lovely look around the house yesterday was enjoying showing it to my mom who is down visiting and having mini break with us and getting to appreciate my amazing kitchen and how great all the cabinets are until........I walked in to my ensuite. What the expletive is the vanity doing there?!!! Why isn't it centred between the bath and the shower etc and so on. No it looks like poop its not what I want I'm unhappy I'm calling the SS. Whats on the plans? Drive back to house dig out plans and oh poop and double poop that's how its been drawn. Noooooo how did we miss that!

Take note guys check the drawings over and over and over again put them away and then look at them several more times before agreeing. The problem is they don't give you the elevations until final contract and then you are so busy reading the small print you don't notice the vanity is a Siamese twin with the shower frame.
Anyway SS said he'll go take and look and get back to us. I told him if it wasn't changed I would cry every day and ring him to tell him I'm still not happy. Let's see what happens as so far they've been really good at sorting things out. I figure if they can erase pot draws without breaking into a sweat they can just amend our plans, post date them and move the vanity. Voila everyone is happy.
And now for the good stuff - Happy Birthday To Me 42 Today oh and some kitchen pictures
