Can I remove these "walls"?
My cabinetmaker said I should have no problem removing the housing around the old fridge. During demo this weekend, I paused because the walls built around the old fridge look quite substantial. There are joists running perpendicular throughout the whole kitchen. The joists right above this fridge housing do go all the way to walls on each side but they pass over the fridge. What do you think? Do I need to call in a second opinion?
