Chonkie found a solution & got "Chit" done!!
" i had to cut the back of her new $50k cabinets, not my problem."
sounds like the sawsall did the talking and he cut access to extend the copper..maybe the OP can provide a cut picture??

I don't hack anything. I made a nice big square cut to allow me to remove the spray foam insulation so I could extend the copper and not set the house on fire. This GC is a big balloon knot too, so this was also a lesson like plumberkc said.

Even if there wasn't spray foam, i would have cut the cabinet. HO was not upset at me since i do great work, she was upset at the GC and the fact he tried to cut corners (this wasn't the only issue). GC had the cabinet guys install a new back, i didn't get pics. Still a hero in the HO's eyes, but that's not why I plumb.

The caps are not plastic, they are brass, and they now belong to me.

I actually carry a few panels of cheap light wood grained laminate flooring on the truck for just those occasions, after cutting the cabinet back, ill fit in across the back of the cabinet nicely the laminate and drill any holes for pipes and use adhesive to install so it looks like the original cabinet back, or paint to match the color, then bill the gc or home owner for the extra work..depending who went wrong..and free if it was my screw up...

Why is it that we, as plumbers, have to do the thinking for every other trade, it seems? Tile guys , who do their trade for a living, can't drill a hole properly, then it's up to us to remedy when the escutions don't cover their holes. Cabinet guys who "butcher" the $10, $20, $50 thousand cabinetry. Then we're asked what we can do about it. It's cool that our trade takes the pride in our craft but, why can't these other Malaka's ( nod to yer Greekness SRDH ) do the same?

I've found that us plumbers seem to be the most skilled of any tradesman & not just in plumbing.

Because we are the last trade out of any construction project, other than the electrician..after all the tile and paint and moldings are done...and have to fix anyones mistakes that impact our trim work and setting fixtures..
