Waaaaaaaaaaay back in September of 2016, I decided to start on a personal project for the house: our dining table. So much happens at the kitchen table. Whether it’s eating or playing a board game or paying bills or making a grocery list or having a deep conversation or hanging out with friends, so much happens at the table. I really wanted to do something special. I found a picture of a table that I thought would be fun to copy with a few modifications to make it work for our tiny house.
It’s time to post the follow up to our first Kitchen update. We’ve been working on several projects at once, but we finally have our kitchen cabinets looking great. The cabinets have been one of our hardest projects so far. Because there are so many moving parts, everything has to fit together perfectly, be perfectly level and square, and function correctly. It took us a few tries to get it right.
If you know me, you know one of my favorite hobbies is eating. So, imagine my delight when we started working on the best part of the house: the kitchen! I think everyone agrees that the kitchen is the heart of the home, and even if our kitchen is small, it doesn’t mean that it can’t make a big impact.
We had some big decisions to make, not only about how we would lay everything out and look, but also about how our kitchen would function for us. A tiny house kitchen requires a bit of adjusting of how storage/prep work/cooking happens in the space. Even more so than in other spaces in a tiny house, the kitchen has an extremely delicate balance of what is required to be a functioning space and what can be given up to allow for extra room. Defining this space for our use was the first step in moving forward.
