    According to the IRC, that's a problem. (underlining is mine)

    - SECTION M1305
    - - APPLIANCE ACCESS
    - - - M1305.1 Appliance access for inspection service, repair and replacement.
    Appliances shall be accessible for inspection, service, repair and replacement without removing permanent construction, other appliances, or any other piping or ducts not connected to the appliance being inspected, serviced, repaired or replaced. A level working space at least 30 inches deep and 30 inches wide (762 mm by 762 mm) shall be provided in front of the control side to service an appliance. Installation of room heaters shall be permitted with at least an 18-inch (457 mm) working space. A platform shall not be required for room heaters.

    There are no exceptions listed from that.
