Nope. When I was in Chilliwack at the end of Jan., the demo unit only had the normal vinyl covering the wall and there was a bead of caulk along the countertop sealing it to the vinyl. I asked about it and was told that is how the maple interiors were going to be made. I asked about a backsplash as a customized option and they said not available. The sales person could not answer the reason for the change.

I still chose the maple interior because I really like the rest of it and it goes really well with our formica and upholstery colors. I plan to use the stickup tiles from home depot anyway as I don't really care for the look of white waterproof wall next to the stove either. This way I will have a unified look all around.

Link to thread about the tile backsplash is here:

If it is still there which I doubt, it is not all that big.
Many people like Rubicon just use a product that has an adhesive attached to the back of it. If he does not post his link, I will try to dig it up.
Those studs are substantial. I impressed.

Maybe I’m dreaming, but in another thread, I’m pretty sure that the owner removed the back splash screws. Evidently, they trusted the adhesive to keep it in place. They’d also done a lot of other mods. A lot. As much as “Eggscape.” If I’m remembering correctly.

We closed on the 13th of December, and chose the maple interior. I’m more than ok without the back-splash panel. There are pictures online of residential kitchen counters without one. This one is from HD.

Eggscape was the one who did it...

Here is a picture I received from ETI today of the paneling beside the stove in a Maple interior trailer. It looks like a beige color. I'm crossing my fingers that it goes with my custom countertop (not the one in the pic). I was expecting the paneling to be lighter.

It almost looks like it has been already spattered with something, should hide stains real easily.

Looks good to me! You’re going to love it, when you start living in it!

I think it is a bit lighter. Photos can often distort whites and similar light colors. I saw that same trailer when I was in Chilliwack end of Jan. My memory is that it is not so beige. (But then again, poor memory distorts colors too!!)
