Issue with pantry and fridge next to each other (fridge not CD)?

We have a 36" pantry with roll-out shelves. Right next to it is a french-door fridge, that has a fridge cabinet. The fridge is not counter-depth, so would extend beyond its cabinet by 5"-6". I was prepared to live with this, rather than sacrifice the space by going with a CD fridge.

However, we just realized yesterday that this set up will prevent us from opening the pantry doors more than 90 degrees because of the fridge right next to it.

I think we'll ask the contractor to just install the pantry and the fridge cabinet 5"-6" away from the wall. Does this sound right?

Do you think they need to build out the wall to do this, or do the cabinets just attach to the floor??

Unfortunately, we are already past the demo and dry-wall phase, so building out would be a problem now, no?

Help!

Thanks.
