Mine was the lovely green laminate . No reinforcement needed. The backsplash does not hug the wall due to its curved nature so there is a small gap at the edge. While I was modifying the cabinet , I added a 110 volt outlet under the sink and installed a small microwave oven on the shelf. Not terribly convenient but not a lot of options. I installed a new furnace also and used 2x4 lumber to elevate it to proper height. Hope this helps.

Thank you! I believe this is the best solution for me. Great tip for the microwave in that space, I agree very limited space. I may keep the sink but new faucet for sure.

I was told in a previous post that the new furnace would need shimming as the new one is smaller. I know each install is a bit different but at least it gives me a idea of the amount of shimming.

In your picture, the fold out shelf? I have the existing orange plastic lam top on mine. I was thinking of using the cut out portion of the new top for the oven or sink for that shelf. Is yours a butcher block? Cutting board?

My sink is original as well. Cleaned up nicely. The faucet is a pull out spray type I bought at Costco . Yes , that is a cutting board. The old table was way too heavy. Bought the hinges at an RV supply and painted them a copper shade to better match. You can PM me if you have any more questions and I can provide more details .

Thanks to everyones input my new Suburban NT 30 is in. I elevated the unit off the floor to match existing vent holes. New copper K flaired to meet new gas location.

I also cut down my existing cabinetry. To accept the Home Depot countertop was really simple. I actually cut only one side about an inch and the other side of the cabinet had a lot a room to move back. It's a close fit for the furnace but worked out well.

Again many thanks
