Tiny House Interior: Kitchen

Building
2

This lovely kitchen was put together much like the other projects in my house.  Built around all the junk that has no where to go and filled right up before I painted, or even finished building it.  I also used 2x4s and 2x3s like I have been doing, and scrap wood to make shelf surfaces.   Very cheap and functional.

First step was to put up the shelves.

Sorry about the pictures. My camera lens broke and I was without a decent one for a couple weeks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To the right of the shelves, I put the sink in.  This is an awesome, cast iron shelf that I got from my grandmother’s basement.  It is very heavy and has to be perfectly flat.  My floor is not “perfectly” flat, so it looks crooked, but the sink is straight.  The sink empties into a 5 gallon bucket, which I dump into the gardens.

The sink and the shelving were built up together after I got the sink flat.  Then I added in some more shelves above the sink to put the dish drainer.  The dish drainer drains directly into the sink.  Very useful.

We screwed a stick into the shelving to make a paper towel holder.

My favorite addition in this kitchen is the “running water.”  We used a 3 gallon water jug and cut a hole in the top to fill it.  Running water!

And then we add some paint and a curtain to hide the dirty water.  Now all we need is a table!

Stumps and Rocks

The first area that I will be adding will be the water room. The rain barrels will be set up here, and so the sink will be nearby, and the next room over will be the bathroom. They need to be close for water access and for grey water drainage. …

Sand Filter Diy

Filtering water is obviously very important. We started out with a Berkey water filter as it was the best one we could find. Six years later, we still use it, but want to make the routine a little smoother. The water that goes into this filter has to be clear …
