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.
