What a pain. We have spent the last week or so redoing our kitchen. We have torn down 1980's wallpaper, primed & painted, installed new laminate countertops,installed a new sink and a garbage disposal, and have gotten all new appliances.
We were just about finished with the kitchen and were installing our new electric, glass-top, slide-in range. The range we are replacing is original from 1989....it was also an electric slide-in range. When we pulled out the old stove, we discovered the area is also set up for a gas range.
The problem.....the pipe for the gas sticks out about 1-2" to far and is preventing us from sliding our new range completely back into place!!!!!!!!!! Frustrating!!!!!
Our question is: Can the gas pipe that is sticking out too far be trimmed back to accomodate our new stove? Any clue how much that might set us back to have someone do it for us? (we would like it still to be usable, if possible, for future homeowners, but we will never use a gas range so it isnt a big deal if it can no longer be used for gas)
Thanks sooo much for any help.
