👻 The ghost behind the dishwasher

When my dishwasher mounting brackets broke, I decided to use the opportunity to address a bigger issue.

Why it matters: Hidden areas behind appliances and cabinets can be a major a source of air leakage in a house.

🖼️ The big picture: I’ll show you how I dealt with this over the next few days, but today I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Check out the gaps in the sheetrock and around the plywood after I took the dishwasher out.
I took the sheetrock out as well. Yikes!
