I mostly do commercial, but would you rather the wires be too short? I would just cut off the extra and do what needs to be done. Since the sink is off, maybe the original EC was tired of dealing with a GC that doesn't have their **** together?
Me thinks the last electrician bailed because of all the dumb asses this HO hired to do the job! Obviously, the countertop template went terribly wrong and instead of admitting to screwing it up they decided to put it in this way anyhow. I would've bailed out on this one too.
I feel for the E.C. I once set recepticals for our plant café. counter. Came back two days later and the sink was directly UNDER one of them. Bosses wouldn't change anything for years. Insurance company finally caught it. Then we got a new counter!!
