Proximity of ovens to fridge - How is this managed? Is there extra or special insulation between the two?

The insulation required to keep a fridge and freezer cold on the inside serves the same purpose to keep heat from entering the unit as well. the oven would have to be on all day for it to make a difference in the fridge or freezer. so cooking at high heat for an hour or so causes no issues

Manufacturers don't seem to have issues with the 2 appliances side by side

We are renovating a cottage in Collingwood this fall. I love this design. Will you do work up north or can you recommend a local craftsman around Blue Mountain?
Thanks!

We checked this model before building kitchen cabinets.
Each fridge is différent. You would need to call the manufacturer and ask them how far the doors need to open to access all bins.
Thanks

Refrig beside ovens isn't a great idea. The ovens run hot. The refrig is trying to cool and it will be working overtime unless you have it insulated or check the mfgr install instructions.

Can you access the cabinets on the back wall besides fridge and oven and above? What is the ease of access into those besides fridge and oven? Do you think this design would still work even if there was no window over sink just a plain white wall?

Cabinets on 2 walls - Would you need to book match the wood on the cabinets if they were on 2 different walls. Ex: the wall to the left of the oven/microwave?

Veneer could be either Bookmatched, or in the case of the picture the veneer was random plank, and grain matched. Looks like real Walnut

Switched the window wall? - Hi! This is amazing and inspiring and I hope you're still answering questions about it! From the "before" pictures, it looks like the window/sink was on the wall where the fridge is in the "after" photos--did you move that around, and was it for function reasons (fridge worked better at the back) or form (the view was better)?
