New Kitchen Counter

I have very limited kitchen counter space, the top mount double sink and stove does not leave much counter top. Am thinking about getting an estimate for an undermount smaller sink and having a new countertop made that will have a flip up extension to add more space. I'd also have a drop in cutting board made to fit into the sink hole that would add more counter. Has anyone done this? What did it cost?

Looks nice. What did you do on the bottom of boards to keep them in place over sinks?..............ronspradley

It kinda looks like an undermount sink, and the boards just fit nicely into the recess?
The undermount sink in my Knight came with corian peices that fit in the same way.

yeah, its an under-mount sink, stainless steel. the rv came from the PO with one cutting board, made from Formica, like the countertop. i figured "great, one slice and its ruined, just like the counter top would be". so i made the maple ones from and old butcher-block work bench, and used the old cutting board to make a side table/shelf for the DWs side of the bed:
