What makes your small kitchen so cool:
Our small kitchen is cool because in 50 square feet we had 87 cubic feet of storage! Plus, my husband and I designed and built the entire kitchen ourselves, with the exception of the electrical.
Describe a challenge you've overcome or a smart resource you've found for your kitchen.:
We had to adapt the entire row of base cabinets on one wall because we were constrained by the main plumbing supply wall for the building and a shared party wall on the other side. In using Ikea cabinets we were able to easily cut down the boxes. We purchased new drawer slides to re-install all of the drawers too. Furthermore, to free up counter space we designed and installed "floating" or cantilevered shelves for the microwave.
What's your favorite meal to cook here?:
Pierogi and goalbki (stuffed cabbage) - we are both Polish.
