Hehe that's funny, I had found the exact same references and had a back-and-forth with Tamarack. In the end they said they're pretty sure it was still compliant but they agreed to a compromise where...

Yeah it's a real challenge to get at it. I had hoped to cut from the closet side, but they backed it with OSB since they also ran plumbing and ducts up through the wall. So I basically have to cut...

Noisy plumbing

See the video below (terrible and vertical, I'm sorry). The camera didn't fully capture how loud it actually is, but hopefully you get an idea.

I have no doubt they mislead you. It's no biggie as far as I'm

You have to use "in wall certified wire". Running a consumer power cable through a closed wall is absolutely against code and ESA. Proper romex is rated up to - for example - 90degrees. A consumer...

The Advantiums are pretty awesome. We debated it to go with our GE Monogram walloven, but in the end went with a normal microwave and trim kit instead. They're pretty darn cool though!
