  • Definitive decision on the countertop color material type (i.e. solid surface, quartz, or natural stone) and verify and finalize the countertop edge profile and support brackets

BASE CABINETS

  • Must be permanently and securely installed, including all cabinet hardware
  • Must be level and plumb
  • Cannot be moved or reconfigured once the template is created

BACKSPLASH

  • Cannot be moved or reconfigured once the template is made

OTHER APPLIANCES
