Dismantling and carrying big things, e.g. popsicle fridge makes a little sense. It seems normal to dismantle e.g a couch (yet IMHO process should spawn more "pieces" than just 1 for every tile)

Wouldn't it be better to add option to push and pull objects in "Furniture movement" menu? They would work only in long axis of an object.  Also, moving 1x1 object should occupy both hands, like moving a generator. No way putting wooden crates in trash bags. (And it would be nice to have an emergency "let go" button somewhere.) And here I've stumbled on another issue. No way picking up whole big-ass fridge by your hands, they need a strict limit of Strength factor.

That's for big stuff, now look at all these tote bags full of 15 pillows... How to tell which objects are too big for which containers? It needs adding only a single number in items and object stats. Let's call it "cubature" and define as "the longest dimension of an object". If object's cubature is equal to container's capacity, it fills it entirely and nothing else can be put in there; if bigger, there's simply not enough space for it. If cubature is smaller than capacity, you can stuff it up to it's weight limit. I suggest using a book and medkit as a base of "1".

 

How does it sound for you?
