I may have convinced him now. Will probably try getting in there with a putty knife tomorrow. I'll try to post back with what I find.

The DH and I have talked about it, but we would put alcohol there since we are not big wine drinkers =) We would definitely have a dedicated space to hold his JD and one for my gin =) I figured we could use a thick foam and cut into it to hold a generic bottle of liquor or the occasional bottle of wine. This really was one of the best ideas anyone has come up with =)

2015 Roo 19.
Got the panel off (not easy). Was in with strapless and caulk and 'floam' insulation. Behind it is fluffy insulation and without sticking out bare hands in it, hard to tell what's behind it, but something is. We're assuming fridge vent, since there is a vent cover on the roof in this area. Pushed the insulation in with the panel, and looks like we can gain about half the area. DH is going to measure to make a partition of some kind in front of the insulation.

I had insulation above my fridge space, but I remember it being the rolled kind. When I removed it, the space was mostly empty except for the very back where I assume the vent was. I placed a 1" thick piece of foam insulation on top of the fridge and used that as my base to construct my box for my wine rack. I still had plenty of depth for the rack.

It's just about 10" deep. DH was opposed to removing the insulation since it was 'supposed to be there'. We made the sides/floor/back of the cubby with scrap pieces from another project at the house, so no $$ sunk here, just sweat n tears and an hour and a half. The notches he cut in the corners weren't very precise, but oh well. We added the trim pieces to cover the weird gap at the top from where the roof is arching and the board isn't. We're calling it the 'bread box' since that's what we think we'll stash up there so it doesn't get squished elsewhere.

Lol. Any reclaimed space is better than no space.

If you're interested, here's the post of the wine cabinet I made above the fridge. Good luck!

Wine anyone?
