Hi Jackie,

You can use one of the boxes located in the Library (preferably Box - 6in High), edit its width, height, depth, and floor to bottom values, and then apply the material of your choice to it. I have attached an example of a quick mock up I did showing how the box was used for an island/bar combination.

      Ive been designing and modeling a few pieces of furniture and builtins here in chief and for some reason I'm having issues with countertop overhangs when a cabinet is butted to another cabinet that is a different depth. Ive attached a photo, but ive never ran into this issue in x9. I have countertops set in my defaults to be the same all the way around, but for some reason when a cabinet is placed adjacent to another, the cabinet with the larger depth will not carry the correct overhang to its adjacent cabinet.

      Hi! Is there a way to change the countertop edging to an OG edge or bullnose? Something other than a flat straight edge?

      I need to know how to get my custom kitchen looking better here.
      Any ideas on getting the ceilings lowered with a dropped ceiling of 11.5"/Valance over the sink/left
      side backsplash to show/matching tile/size of the backsplash tile...?
      If you think that you would need the file, then send me a text,
      and we can discuss this?

      Here is a library of popular microwaves and warming drawers. Some insert into full-height cabinets and some are under-cabinet mounted. Some are 24" and some are 30".
      I have even included a set of pre-built full-height cabinets with these inserted that should take on the characteristics of the cabinets in your plan.
      Some of these have higher face counts than I think necessary, but since you'll typically be using only one or two per plan, I think it'll be fine. Use at your own discretion.
