Gas shut off valve placement
This may be a silly question...but when it comes to safety, I'd rather ask a silly question than blow up! That being said...
I'm in the planning stages of my kitchen. I've picked out my range, an all gas Bertazzoni. I've never had a gas range before, so this is all new info for me.
My cabinet guy came over last night with some samples and told me that we might have to reconfigure the cabinets because my GC told him that the gas shut off valve has to be readily accessible and needs to be next to the stove.
I have never seen a kitchen with a shut off valve visible and I'm totally confused.
I did a little googling and what I glean from my research is that the valve has to be accessible, but behind the stove is fine if the stove can be pulled out easily.
Am I missing something here?
