We are renovating our century home's kitchen and would like to install windows that go to the ceiling so that our marble backsplash does not have any seams in it. The thing we later realized is, if we have under cabinet outlets, there would be too much space between the outlet and the range (about 36 instead of the 24 stated in the code). Personally we are okay with this from a practical standpoint.
Since the window would make placing the outlet impossible, will this be okay from an inspection or will we be required to raise the window 3 inches to make room for the outlet (and by consequence introduce 4 new seams). It is my understanding that outlets placed facing up in the window sill would not be to code.
