21' taller coat closet

Is there anyone who has no microwave or has the smaller refrigerator with microwave above it, who had the coat closet made taller in the 21'? Other models have a tall closet but the 21' closet is short. If there is no microwave above the closet, that area can be expanded.

I believe the microwave is there because the larger fridge is standard on the 21. ETI will probably eliminate the upper cabinet & microwave, and expand the closet on request when the unit is built.

As far as I know, the coat closet does not change by not ordering the microwave. They just put a door on the front of the microwave enclosure for extra storage. You can always ask for an alternative layout though.

Yes, don't see why that cannot rather easily be done. Was just wondering if someone had.

Closet? Pantry? As far as I know, they're both the same size in the 21'. It's owner usage that determine the "name." You want both? You get two different cupboard doors, unless ETI combines them into one as an option. The 21' owners I know, appreciate that upper cupboard for "paper products," or maybe a wine sellar

I'm curious to what you want to do with that space.

I don't drink wine, I'm a beer drinker and the cupboards (both sides of the axle hold a case!) Two six packs on a side (and I like room temperature beer!)

The 19' has a coat closet, if you look at the photos, that is tall with a tall mirror on it. Our jackets or shirts fit well hanging up. The 21' has no such tall closet as seen in the photos of closet below the microwave. Much shorter and will not take jackets or shirts.

No, those items will fit. Check with 21' owners.

The big difference I've seen between the 21' and the 5.0TA... is 5.0TA get BOTH.. we get the "pantry," and also get a hanging closet which is between the bathroom and the loft. 21' owners get a cupboard with drawer(s).

Notice this pics.

You are looking at the low drawers beside the closet, not the area I am referring to in a 21'. Mirrored next to refrigerator in a 19' and obviously much shorter in a 21'. The 19' closet would be where the microwave and closet below (and I guess area above also) is in a 21'. In our 19' the microwave is above the refrigerator so the closet is tall. Photo of 19' tall mirrored closet is on ETI.
