Worth the prewire? And are we talking 12v? Maybe we'll add.

The prewired for lighting is worth it IMHO the cabinets are deep and can be dark. The camera power and video cable is a thought, I do not know your vehicle at all but in my Tacoma I have a camera in the tail gate to see behind me backing up, It is handy to hook up too I have modified it to be able to switch it on at will. My stereo system can also display a video feed my eventual plan is to do a hardwired camera on the back of the trailer for traveling use and backing use. Hook it to the stereo's screen and be able to use it at will also. The wireless ones seem to be all over the map on reviews.

Maybe so. We like the little battery powered led puck lights in cabinets too. Have used one at home in a linen closet and it's been going strong for 2 years now.

They are good just have to remember to put lithium batteries in them they last longer in the cold . I know your in SA,TX but I have seen 12 Deg in Austin before .. Btw that is the temp that an air tool freezes up at when operating off a gas powered air compressor out side.. LOL I just like the idea of not having to worry about that many batteries to change.

I think the spray foam also helps keep the Heat out in warmer climates, just think about how hot asphalt gets on a hot day.

ETI charged me $25 per 12V drop in each bank of cabinets and underneath the bed area to light up the storage later with LED lighting I'll be adding.

Yes, you do gain space. Quite a bit of space where it counts. When I'm in Ten Forward this weekend, I'll measure the outside of the 2-burner cooktop and let y'all know precisely what you gain/lose depending on position. Essentially, in the horizontal position the area behind the cook top is "spice storage," not food prep use.

I know this is a 3-burner, but pic gives you an idea of the sort of space you are dealing with.
If you have the stove cover, the area behind the stove can't be used for spices or other small items. Turning the stove sideways in my case would block access to my knives.

We are not getting a stove cover, opting instead for the 'Myron mod' approach with a homemade cutting board/cover. We like the idea of spice storage behind the stove as well. So we went with the standard config. Jim has me curious though about the swapping of the sink and stove locations. Gotta think on it some more.

Donna, don't forget to send me your stove top measurements (Length, Width, and Height of Knobs - or burner grates if they are higher) so I can make your "housewarming present" tray when I get back in the shop 8/2.
