I am sawing an opening in the side of my protruding hall closet because it's the only place in my apartment that has room for a wine fridge.
My plan was to find out where the framing was after punching an inspection hole, then saw through the 2x4s. I was surprised to see that there are doubled up 2x4s instead.
Above this closet is the washer/dryer, so could this wall be load-bearing?
Diagram shows outline of fridge plus where the posts are located. I want to remove the baseboard and have the front of the fridge flush with the wall.
