Freestanding Range replacing slide-in range in 1940s house

12 years ago


We live in a 1940s bungalow (not big enough to be a ranch). Anyway, our kitchen was built to accommodate a slide-in range that sits on a toe cap platform. At some point someone removed the original stove and replaced it with a freestanding range balanced on that platform/toe cap. Unsurprisingly, it tips slightly forward because it's not the right size.

We want to replace it with a free standing range. I'm assuming we can just cut the toe cap from the cabinets on either side, remove the platform and cut the tile at the back (which has been constructed with a lip to accommodate the slide-in)so that it can sit on the floor and close to the wall as it should.

Is this crazy or doable?
