I would raise that box, then all you would need is some stained veneer for the exposed side on the raised sides.

If you have a duct out the top, that needs modification too. If duct is out the back, its a little more work.


There is codes for how close MW can be to burner. 15 or 16" minimum is common, or as specified by MW manufacturer.
.
Right, and that's another reason I wanna raise it up. The nuke box fan is (currently at least) recirculating, so no duct to deal with. Although a duct would be superior in my eyes, and I may eventually do that with a duct up through the cabinet and along the tops of the cabinets and out the side wall.

Shortening the cabinet box I would consider an easy task; as you say, the doors is the hard part, which is why I want to try to buy new doors.

Something to consider, but I doubt it'll fly with the missus. Looks a little messy to me too.

The women buying houses here love that look.
