Metricon Kitchen Cupboards Alignment Check

Wow that's terriable. I hope you have refused to pay any further progress payments until its resolved? Such basic mistakes being made, I wonder how these companies live with themselves!

Price to upgrade 40mm Caesarstone?

No one gets solid 40mm. All 40mm stone in every kitchen is only 40mm at the front edges.

Fridge cavity - what’s a good amount of space each side?

You should check the fridge manual for minimum spaces.
I normally allow 25mm on each side.

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.
