Need advice on counter in new laundry room
Hi! My 2 dogs sleep in the laundry room. In my new house I want their beds to be under a countertop so I don't trip on their beds and they can enjoy a little "cave" of their own. See the drawing below. My question is whether a counter top can span the space between the arrows without being supported by base cabinets below. The attachment points would be the side of the tall utility cabinet and the wall that is a little over 5' away. I have not spec'd the counter material yet.
Can I do this? If not, can you suggest a way to keep at least 4' of undercounter space for the pups?
