I'll be building my island over a paved deck, do I still need to use decking boards?
I'm drawing out my layout and when I spec in the cut out for the appliances, I assume the cut out is the frame + the counter materials? So if it calls for a 10" height cutout that would include the counter top?
And for doors, generally, how much space do I need to give for the lips? Is 1.5" from floor to opening good enough?
Lastly, do I need to enclose the cut out boxes and just leave the opening based on MFG min spec or is it ok just to keep it wide open?
