At this point I'm kind of committed. I already tiled the other side of the kitchen. If I level the bottom course, how big of a gap do you think I can get away with under the low side by lifting it to...

Yea I don't think it's the countertop company's responsibility and I believe it's in the contract. I started on the opposite side of the kitchen. I installed some new cabinets to match the old ones...

Still struggling with this one. When I round the bend there is one spot on the counter that is 1/8 inch even lower than what I thought the low point was. So now at my high point I'd be trimming 3/4...
