Kitchen remodel

Reclaiming dumbwaiter space for your kitchen.

There is a right and a wrong way to reclaim valuable dumbwaiter space for your kitchen.

The cheap, easy, way is to just install a cupboard fabricated out of plywood.

This is a fire hazard and is against code. The right way to reclaim a dumbwaiter is to pour a 3"-4" deck od re-enforced concrete as a fire stop.

You should also use "shaft wall", a thich sheetrock, if you are constructing a chase, or leaving a space, for cables to be run. All chses in the building should be on the same side so that cabling can be run easily.
