We described what we wanted in our bathrooms, but it didn't feel like
One of the first things to understand was our quote- plumbing and electric are contracted separately and we didn't receive the estimates from the subcontractors until we were involved in the process. We knew some rerouted plumbing would be required for the new shower, but it ended up being about $5k.

There were 2 large pieces of granite required in the kitchen, and they obviously didn't make any effort to match the 2 pieces, so the granite on one side of our kitchen is much darker than on the other side. As they were walking out the door, they said that the pieces would match once the sealant dried - but it doesn't.
We visited (and re-visited) most of the granite sources in our area. they did not bother us with phone calls. After talking with the other companies and checking the quality of their workmanship, we knew that we had to go back to
