Re: Replacing a dishwasher
A built in needs the cabinetry and countertop around it to keep it stable and secure. You can install one any way you like as long as it can be secured. It's actually secured to the underside of the countertop.
What kind of countertop do you currently have? It might be possible to extend it over the space where the dishwasher will live. Can you post a picture of the space, cabinets, and counter?
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
