Clearance for double oven installation


Just got off the phone with my father and he's reframing out a new opening for adding a double oven where a single oven with built in microwave above originally was.

He researched the clearances required and all he could find was that the oven needed to have 3/4" clearance when at the end of a run of countertops. I believe this is the side clearance.

My question is...the existing opening has drywall in it, which I would think should be cement board. Is drywall ok?

Also, the opening as it is now is 24" deep....which the existing oven was 22 1/2" deep. The new oven is 23 7/8" deep, leaving an 1/8" clearance behind. Is there a standard minimum clearance for a built in oven like this?

For the clearances it would probably be best to read the installation specs for that particular oven. You will be able to sleep soundly at night
