1 - Remove the drywall and trim the studs down by 1/2" over the full height of the wall using a router? Other ideas? Then re-drywall. The wall is non-load bearing.
2 - Just leave the one section of hidden wall where the ovens are without drywall. It's just a short wall, not open to anywhere above or below and will never be seen.
3 - Same as two but use sheetmetal to cover the studs.
4 - Other ideas? Is there some other product that is thin and can be used instead of sheetrock for something like this?
Thanks for any input!
