We went with 2740 downstairs and 2590 upstairs (and square set cornice) which i'm very happy with. I think people have gone higher but this was the max we could…

Yes, it is part of the package so you would think it would be pretty standard for the kitchen company to build the right size cavity. I think they inverted…
