Default Too much corn sugar in the bottling bucket?

I just finished bottling a 3 gallon batch of Westmalle trippel clone. I think I put 100 gr of corn sugar mixed in 1 cup of boiled water in the bucket with the beer which had a final gravity of 1.014 @ 70F. I fear I may have created bottle bombs. The mixture has been in bottle for about 8 hours at this point. Anyone with a suggestion to save the beer and house?

100 grams (3.5 ounces) would give you 3.0 volumes of CO2 bottling at 70° for 3 gallons. If your beer was completely fermented you'll be okay.

I used Northern Brewers calculator.
