We are currently building a house with Porter Davis, and for the first time ever, we will have a designated space for the fridge. We are currently looking at French Door fridges at the moment.

However, it has a smaller capacity (525L vs 614L) for approximately the same dimensions (900ish wide by 1790ish tall and costs nearly $2500 more, and that doesn’t include the door panels which you need to buy seperately.
