I came across this house with 2 very large dump areas. Is there a maximum size that these should be? Also one of the dump areas has had drywall installed right over it and there is an area (circled in picture) that is exposed to the basement and you can look right into the dump area.
There is duct work entering a dump area also, is that proper?? I would guess not but am no expert.
Can anyone give me some more information on these conditions?
