I remember the article although I do not have it at hand. I remember three
significant points that may be of help to you. 1. to open up the bottom
shelves to a height of approx 7-8 inches each ; 2. to have your plates and
short shelves in the middle of the stacks; and 3. have your back stack away
from the back wall (where the exit flu is) a couple of inches to allow for
circulation. Hope this helps.
