Formica left over pieces

New buyers might want to request the leftover Formica pieces from their build, they get trashed by ETI. My sink cover is a tad too small so it falls in the sink - I would make a new one but don't want to buy a full 4x8 foot sheet to do that. Had I requested the scraps from ETI (which has to buy full sheets) I would have had plenty to do that.

Yup, it's part of our built list. They said we'd get a box of 'em (Formica and cabinetry scraps).

Seems like you should automatically get your overage and then say you don't want it. We were so confused with great new information that we drove off without the excess upholstery and Formica. We did request our upholstery fabric and received it via mail.

Wish I had our scrap formica now too, I just hadn't thought of it yet ...

If I was picking up a new trailer I would ask for a few pieces of interior trim too, I could not find a source of the products they use in the US.

Good thought on the trim; I had to email Reace to get some 2 ft samples for a countertop I'm installing.

I can see that any significant bits of owner supplied materials should rightly come back to the owner. But any leftover bits of Escape supplied materials Should be kept by Escape to be used up in another build.

My comment referred to those who did a Formica option and paid for the entire 4x8 sheet of material.

ETI materials belong to ETI, that is assumed.

We paid for the Formica and installation option.

I presume if you leave the pieces at ETI they can charge you for storage or disposal?
