You might not need the flange for the faucet. It usually is used to cover up the extra holes from an old faucet or a sink predrilled with three holes.

If you do the notch pictured, you will see the underside of the faucet and the area will not be sealed. Water will pour down the opening into the sink base.
Two options:
Smaller sink or move sink base out a few inches.

OK, so we finally made it to the granite store today. (Had to spend 3 hours at the Social Security office first trying to straighten out the mess they've made of my Medicare situation. Anyone here got advice for that???) (Just kidding.) And, I reckon I'm gonna capitulate/compromise once again and agree to a smaller sink. DH doesn't want to try bringing the cabinets out a few inches (which I think we could do with little trouble, but do realize things usually are more difficult than they appear), and if we insist on holding the "designer" accountable, it will still be another month or so before they'd fix it, so...
there it is.

I could see when we were there in person how it wouldn't work well to have the larger sink, and it's only about 1 3/4" smaller, so I can deal with that. What I can't deal with now is that they (the granite people in cahoots w/DH) want me to agree with a different cut on the big ol' island I put a buncha time & effort into designing. See, the way it turned out on the floor, I ended up making the division between the kitchen & living room to be a big sweeping curve. It's gonna look awesome. So when I got the chance to also design a big island with 2 sides overhanging by a foot for stools, I wanted just one corner to also have a smaller (but still kinda sweeping) curve, to echo the floor. We even had the canned lights installed to line up with the curve.

But today they started "explaining" how my curve idea "just isn't practical" & all that jazz. Like I haven't already compromised enough, ha ha. (I'm not really laughing. Argh.) They want me to accept a little 6" radius curve, I think because they already have a template for it and heck, that's what they're used to, right? I don't know. But it kind of chaps my hide. I guess this needs a new topic really. I'm just venting. I guess it is a bit funny now that I think about it. I mean, hey, how often do I get to play decorator, & why can't I have it the way I want it when I do, ya know? I rarely stamp my feet & throw tantrums, but I might just have to this time.

Anyway, you guys are the greatest and I really enjoy this forum. Feels like I've got friends I can just sign onto the computer to visit with. I know now the next time we sink our savings into a kitchen to make sure the sink will fit first, plus make sure they leave room for corbels to support my counter overhang!

Blessings on all ya'll's heads!

You're right, Ron. We aren't going to have to use the flange at all.
