    Please explain the school bus and the ice cube tray.
    Congrats on avoiding about half of all fridge related sadness by avoiding the buttons and gizmos of the techie ice/water display.

    I'm guessing that the vegetable crispers are kind of hard to pull all the way out.

    When we built our house (2007), our builder warned us from the very beginning that the plans we chose forced us into a counter-depth refrigerator. If you're not familiar with a counter-depth refrigerator, it's shallower than a regular fridge by about 10 inches. That's a whole lot. It is regular width and height, but then you open the door and the back of the fridge is just right there.

    And there was no way to push the depth back any further. There is a hallway behind that kitchen wall. And there was no way to push the entire kitchen forward without pushing out an exterior wall.

    And the kicker? Counter-depth refrigerators are about 30% more expensive than their full-size counterparts.

    I chose a freezer on the bottom model too, is it a big drawer?

    Boo. Not even guitar shaped. And it doesn't look like a Marshall stack, like my dream fridge would

    Actually, it's the same model we had before, which that space was built to fit when we redid the kitchen in 2006. So, it doesn't "barely fit," I purposely bought the same model again and it fits perfectly!

    The school bus magnet is because my mom was a school bus driver for over twenty years. I'm not sure what confuses you about an ice tray sitting on a counter next to a refrigerator? I don't like any fancy do-dads in my fridge, so no ice maker, especially since it would mean losing a lot of space in the freezer. Trays have worked for me for over fifty years; I don't see any reason to change now!

    Actually, every drawer can be removed with no issues at all. I know it doesn't look that way, but it's true!

    That sucks -- We need every inch of space in the fridge. And, just to be clear, this isn't a counter-depth model. It's full-depth.

    It's big enough -- The fridge is 22 cubic feet. The freezer is obviously some fraction of that. I wish it was a door, instead of a drawer, as we lose the storage that the door afforded. But, this is how they make them now, so we'll learn to live with it.

    I've installed a lot of kitchens, mostly custom for wealthier clients, and that is how a fridge is supposed to fit- really tight so stuff doesn't fall off the end of the counter.
    I was gonna say your upper cab is a little too far to the left, but it's good to have a little clearance for air movement since the compressor makes heat making cold.

    I actually have one of the "counter depth" models which I picked to avoid having science projects hiding in the back, or just so I don't have to move stuff to find stuff.
    It's a little wider for the CF.

    When we redid the kitchen, we refaced the cabinets, but replaced the counter. Hence, since the space was originally built for a larger fridge, you have a gap by the upper cabinet, while the counter fits nice and tight.

    But, like you said, a little ventilation is never a bad thing and I promise it's really not so obvious when you see it in person!
