No, but unless you are installing custom cabs you will need to work with available cab demensions, and fillers.

Also, is there a building code in CA that you must leave a walkway of 36 inches or more when you walk into the kitchen?

Not sure of CA code but, 36" sounds like good practice ie. room for two people to pass... moving refrig in and out..

If I have the peninsula to 60 inches from the wall, there will be 34 inches space from the end of the peninsula to the wall. Another way to get in the kitchen is through the garage.

Also, is there a building code that won't allow you to place a side by side refridgerator beside a door that leads to the garage?

As long as you are not interferring with egress you should be ok.
Watch out for door wars.



Also, can I have the light switch change from the kitchen side to the garage side?
Need more info... should be simple to do.

Do you think I can change the design after I signed the proposal?
Like death and taxes... changing your mind after a contract is established will cost you $$$. Call your supplier or Contractor right away... they may be ordering cabs now.. Most states have a three day buyers remorse clause... Contractor should want to work with you on your changes, but do this now.

Most granite is cut to order. You might find someone that has just your size in the correct flavor, you could also find a neddle in a hay stack.

If you are working with store bought base cabs @ 24" deep most folks want at least a 1" over hang so if you finish the back of your peninsula you may want more than 26" maybe 26 1/4" wide.
