Can the OP post a kitchen layout? I have some concerns, but would like to see the layout.

SABC's are not permitted to supply receptacles in the living room.

Kitchen countertop receptacles require GFI protection not AFCI. Dining room receptacles require AFCI protection but not GFI protection (barring locale near sinks).

Kitchen layout would really help.

I will post a diagram later tonight...working on one now...

The SABCs that I was describing would feed the adjacent dining room which is allowed by code. I apologize if I stated living room in an earlier post.

The question was if the SABCs also supplied power to the receptacles in the dining room if it needed AFCI protection in addition to GFCI protection to which I thought the answer to be yes.
