Counter support options
We have a space in our kitchen where we are going to have seating under the countertop. It was originally designed to be between two base cabinets, but I would really prefer that the seating be moved over a bit as it would be more out of the way of the rest of the kitchen and allow closer access to the trash from the sink. But then the counter would end at the fridge, leaving no support. What would I need to do support-wise to make this possible, or do I really need to have the cabinet back where it originally was. Here's a drawing:
The 18" base cab is what was originally next to the fridge. I would rather have it where I put it in the drawing. We could build a narrow support at the fridge end- how wide would it need to be to support granite? I assume I'd also need some kind of support in the middle too (a bracket?) The actual seating space will be around 48-49" wide, I think. There is also a radiator under there we are not moving, but we could build some kind of box around it so that the granite is resting on something over the radiator.
Hope that makes sense... I fear I'm not explaining it very well...
