Granite over dishwasher at end of peninsula with 12-in overhang
I have a peninsula that has a sink base and a dishwasher right next to it. The dishwasher is at the end of the peninsula. There will be a 1 1/2" panel next to the dishwasher and a panel running along the back of the peninsula. There is currently a 12" overhang along the back of the peninsula for stools. We will never eat at the peninsula since there is an eat-in area right next to it so I really don't care about the width of the overhang. We decided, though, to keep the 12" overhang to help with splashing from the sink.
Because of this set up the granite will be sitting on the sink base, the dishwasher, the side panel and the back panel.
That just doesn't seem like enough support to me especially when you add the 12" overhang into the mix, but what do I know.
We spoke to a granite installer who wasn't too worried but the granite sales person was worried. No solution was arrived at.
Did any of you have to deal with this and what was your solution? TIA!
