My wife and I are planning to remodel our kitchen to the point of tearing
everything out to the studs. We want to replace our refrigerator with one
that is counter depth. We were thinking of a GE Arctica model that has a
depth of 28 5/16. Is this considered counter depth?
Depends. How deep are your counters? Most are 24-25".

A typical base cabinet is 24 inches deep.
A typical top is 25 inches deep.
Please note these are typical.
If you add an appliance garage at the back of the counter, 12 or 18
inches can be divided.
You can gain 2 inches by turning the studs behind the refrigerator
A 25 inch counter + 2 inches of stud space = 27 inches.
Be sure that when you make the refrigerator "counter depth," rather than
slightly proud of the counter, that the door will still open more than
90 degrees. Will you be able to remove shelves, crisper drawers, etc.?
