After talking with our PM and SR we have resolved this issue and are very happy with the outcome, in fact we are happier then we were before when we thought the columns were included in both the living room and dining room.
As we didn't want the columns in the living room, but wanted columns in the dining room. They agreed the columns were included in living room, just not in the dining room. So we asked if the columns in the living room could just be put in the dining room instead, leaving the living room without columns. At first this was a no, then I re-explained it, then they said yes. I'm so glad I explained it again.
We are still only getting the columns they agree that are included and no extra columns, just installed in a different room. Doing my happy dance, lol.
