+1, ours were all over the place and before handover everything was adjusted. After moving in we got the cabinet makers back in to adjust a few others. Don’t stress…

Yeah mate spot on, the bricks are chestnut and the mortar used was natural. If we went off white it’d make the bricks look more redder and I don’t think…

Our door handle is the same. They’ve installed it to the far right and you can scrape your knuckles if you’re not careful.

🤞 but we’d rather they finish it properly and it takes a bit longer than get in quickly so they rush the fixes.
