I’ve read all the rules and regulations about what your home kitchen can and cannot have, I think my kitchen is almost passable if I were to have a home inspection. However, the way my kitchen is built, it has a doorway with a door for kitchen access and it has a cut out/raised counter for a bar area. In the rules it states that your kitchen cannot open up into any living or sleeping space. The bar/raised counter area opens up to the living room. If I were to built a temporary panel to cover the open bar area, would it be possible to pass an inspection? (Using all food safe materials of course) Who should I speak to to find out more info on what exactly I can do in this situation?
The link I included is similar to my house layout- open bar cutout, with an enclosed kitchen,and one doorway entry with a door.
I think you’ll be fine, as long as your kitchen doesn’t open up to a bedroom or sleeping space. Assuming you’re going with a Class B permit, just move ahead with the inspection and I highly doubt they’ll say anything about it.
It would only work as a commercial kitchen if it’s consistently inspected by the health dept. However, as a CFO, you are not allowed to use a commercial kitchen (or any kitchen other than your home kitchen) for your business.
