Cooktops using LPG

Don't assume. Builders have no idea when it comes to this sort of thing I bet forgot completely and didn't tell the plumber!
Normally LPG jets have to be ordered separately…

kitchen drawers

Unfortunately all builders are different. So builders allow there contractors to bill you directly for changes and other builders put huge mark ups on.

Anyone know what profile these kitchen doors are?

They are not a standard profile so they wont have a name.
They look like a moulding has been added to the outside edge of the drawer front.

Is there an overhang?
$1700 is about what I would expect a builder to charge for this upgrade.

Painting kitchen cabinets with chalkboard paint?

As long as you key the surface by sanding it properly the undercoat/paint will stick easily.
Why chalk board paint?
