bump out for fridge ?


for this to work, for my fridge. i would have to use no insulation. not even 1/2". and that still wouldn't be enough, better, but not enough.

i will have to chew on this.

Come on, the compressed fiberglass would be insulation. Between
my direction and pictoral you should be able to figure out
a solution to " the fridge that ate Chicago "

bump out for fridge ?


Just so you know Fix'n it, I measured my fridge and it's
32 3/4" deep ( not counting the handles of course)
how deep is yours?

Between the space you pick up in the back, and bringing the
side wall out a couple of inches, it creates the allusion of a counter
depth fridge.

It would be pretty ridiculous to do an exterior bump out just for the fridge. The hassles of making all the transitions on the outside wall (framing, roofing, siding, insulation, etc) aren't trivial. If you're going to go through all that work then you might as well do a larger bump out for the whole section of wall. It'd cost more but it'd certainly have a better rate of return come time to sell. Whereas a strange bump out might actually decrease the property's value.

bump out for fridge ?


ok guys. i am back to this. being less ignorant on this then when i started this thread. i am still unsure what to do.

my main concern is condensation on the sheathing = i don't want any rot.

plan A : cut a hole in the wall where the fridge is. frame it out as if a door. then put 3/4" plywood to cover the hole. = no wall bump out. then 1" xps on the outside ( the whole outside wall is getting 1" xps anyway). paint plywood on the inside.

so, as far as condensation on this plywood, is this a bad idea ?

feel free to modify this plan . keeping in mind as much fridge recess as possible.

thanx
