Stove in peninsula?
If you stick with the original idea-----Make sure that the counter is wide enough for preparation and such---I added a wider and somewhat longer counter for a customer who was frustrated to tears with the lack of space for ingredients and tools around the cook top---
Although I have worked on almost ever part of her house--she thanks me for that top almost ever time I see her.
Little things mean a lot---your kitchen is a work shop----lousy layout takes the joy out of working in it---so take your time---make a mock up using sheet styrofoam if you can't picture how the layout will work-----this extra effort will pay you back for the life of the kitchen---Mike----
