Help! Where to put my steam oven?
Hi, We are struggling with where to place our steam oven as we just realized the bottom of our Gaggenau combi-steam oven needs to be placed at least 35 1/2 inches off the ground. First of all, can anyone please explain to me why this oven has to be so high, and if there are any other options (i.e. drains lower say in basement i-joists below).? Secondly, can anyone please help me figure out where to place it, especially now that we have added a second window? The row of storage labeled dumb waiter and freezer are too outside the working zone, and are right beside a main walk way so I would rather not put it that far away. Below are some plans we are working with to give you an idea of our space. Looking forward to your ideas. TIA!
Here is rough floor plan that we are still tweaking. It only shows one window, but we would like two as per elevation bottom of screen.
Here is a proposed elevation of the window wall. We would place a standard oven or the microwave where it shows an oven, as we just realized the steam oven must be above counter height.
