The countertop guys came out again and have a solution. We will cut into the base cabinet but not all the way through it. Just enough to get the sink in. And, we’ll probably still strengthen one side. Super happy and hoping we get back on their install schedule soon.

So, not only is there a saying, “cut once, measure twice,” but there’s an earlier saying which predates that gem. It’s “cut once, and at least measure once.” Also, it could fall under “don’t assume.” I bring up these points because the countertop guys didn’t measure the base cabinet which our sink is supposed to go in. As a result, the hole they cut in the granite for the sink is too big. We don’t have room to cut out the cabinet, because the dishwasher is right next to it and it’s a tight fit.
I’m currently waiting for the company to call me in the hopes they can perform some speedy remedy, but man, it’s aggravating. So remember: Don’t assume. Don’t eyeball something; measure it. And even better, measure it twice.
