More work in the bus kitchen this week.
I wanted some extra depth to the benchtop in the area next to the sink because I have a benchtop oven/airfryer that I want to put there. I also want to be abe to fit a dishrack in front ofthe oven, as well as have space to pull the oven forward away from the back wall when I want to use it. There just isn’t enough room for all of this with the standard 600mm deep benchtop.
But simply extending the fixed bench in this section wasn’t an option, because if i ever need to get my fridge out of the bus, I need the full width of the hallway here in order to move it.
So I came up with the idea to build a section of cabinet that could be removed.
The cabinet extension tucks in under the main benchtop and latches onto the cabinet on either side so it feels pretty secure and I don’t think it will move when I’m driving.
It gives me the extra benchspace I need as well as a little bit of storage space, which I will use for studio gear.
I’m very pleased with how it turned out.
The kitchen is really starting to look good now.
