What is your kitchen like?
Everything that we use in our kitchen is portable or temporary. For example; we didn't build in a stove or oven unit. We use portable butane burners. We have two but unless we are making something that requires two burners, we typically only have one out on the counter at a time. We have the L shaped counter and cabinets beneath. Under the smaller cabinets we store all of our utensils. Under one half of the larger cabinet we store our food. The other half holds a cooler so we can keep some foods cool, but we rarely ever used it. The plates and glasses are stored on the shelves above the counter.
Also in our kitchen is the Berkey water filter. This is a gravity fed filtration system that we put our spring water into to make sure it is as clean as possible. We don't drink it, but we could. We use this primarily for washing dishes and ourselves.
Our pots and pans are stored under the sofa, but since the sofa is reaching distance from the kitchen it isn't a problem to have them there.
We have also built an outdoor kitchen where we cooked most of the summer. Outside we have a Camp Chef Camp Oven, which is a sweet propane oven. Anything you can cook in an conventional oven can be cooked in there. We would also take our butane burners out there to cook.
Most of our food came from the local farmer's market. We would buy fresh food weekly and eat it within the week so we rarely needed refrigeration. We do have a Stirling Engine Cooler which is hooked up under the house to our battery system. We turned it on when we needed it and used it primarily to chill our beer. Unfortunately, Coleman no longer makes these.
You'll be able to read a little more about our kitchen in my book, 120 Ideas for Tiny Living, which I expect to have out by the end of March.
If you have any more questions about the way we live in our tiny house, please feel free to ask.
