When we moved into this house a little over 2 years ago, we were disappointed to find that our large side-by-side fridge did not fit into the spot that had been built into our cabinets. So we ended up putting it in the garage, making plans to buy a smaller fridge.
Well, I went back and forth to the garage for about a year before we finally bought our new appliance. You can really get used to just about anything. I was so excited when our new fridge was delivered. It slid right into place and was just what I wanted.
I stood admiring it wondering how long it would take me to stop heading to the garage for food. I stepped forward to open the doors and admire the inside. The refrigerator side swung open perfectly, revealing the last time I would ever see the inside truly clean.
I pulled open the freezer door and stared in horror as the handle hit the wall behind it, leaving only a 6-inch gap to access the freezer space. NOOOOOOOOO! I cried. I know it's silly, but I did. I finally had my fridge but I had to turn things sideways and maneuver them around to get them into the freezer. I know, me and my first-world problems. But still, I was disappointed.
Fast forward another year and bring in my sweet father-in-law, husband and brother-in-law. Bless them for having the ability to fix things. And bless them for letting a hormonal women have a say in how they fixed it.
|This is Rod. My father-in-law. He was amazing and so sweet to come and help us.|
|We had a support beam problem that they had to figure out. This was the first solution.|
|I kinda like the fridge here guys. Easy access|
|This is the huddle. They do tons of this. They have to put their bald heads together and figure out a problem. There's lots of talking and sometimes, laughing. I love to see them like this.|
|This was solution 2 which hormonal wife was so relived to see. They cut away the angled piece and put a header in to take the weight. So much better!|
|Here it is with the trim. It is much more in line with the style of the rest of the house. I am so happy with it! Now, on to clean up the mess!|
