Hi all,

We have a laundry chute in our new build which just had the cabinets installed this week.

The cabinet opening is 620 wide, but the actual chute is only 270. It's been made from melamine, so this is the size the cabinet maker did himself.

The opening is tiny, and smaller than what was in the display home.

I am asking if there is a building code regulation that specifies the max opening size.

270mm square opening seems very small, most clothes will get stuck.

Thank you

Evening all,
I am wondering if anyone can assist me with a question. We are building a new house and have just had the frame stage passed by the Building companies selected building inspector.

Part of our build is to have a laundry chute from the upstairs to the ground floor laundry.

Currently the floor joist runs straight through the middle of the chute opening. The floor joist has a stamp on the wood saying not to cut the flange. In speaking to the building supervisor he mentioned that you can cut them they just have to go back to the manufacturer to find out how they want it supported if they do.

As the frame has been inspected and approved, and they haven't yet cut the floor joist, is that o.k? The frame was approved as is. If they change it after the inspection are they allowed to do this?

Being a first time builder I have a lot of questions and things I don't know.

Thank you
