Actually, I noticed two problems with your countertop. One, the gap does seem too large for a stone countertop. Two, the seam is perpendicular when it should have been cut and fitted at a 45 degree angle. The edge, or bullnose would fit together much better if cut and fitted at 45 degrees.

Euro style hinges adjust in all 3 directions that you'd want: up/down, in/out (relative to the cabinet wall), and front/back. If you start with a cabinet carcase that's square or nearly square, it's usually a matter of tweaking some of those 3 adjustments on the hinges.

Are you OK with "beautifying" your house by adding a post-industrial or modern "style" water heater on the outside of your house? Is there some other interior hidden space close to the bathroom that will be less conspicuous? You could also run a dedicated ½" or ⅜" PEX hot water line to the bathroom, which will store much less water and therefore result in ...

"decided" -- a sales rep doesn't get to do that. You do, but only after finding out whether inside or outside violates local code; and whether you could make good use of the interior space freed up. Other considerations: are the existing hot water lines (from heater to bathrooms) insulated? How long is that run? Over a few years, you may well recoup the ...
