& Kerrie's Kitchen
This is how David &
Kerrie went about designing their own functional kitchen.
When we designed our kitchen, we wanted to make it functional
but also it had to fit all our existing equipment. Thus we measured everything
we wanted to be able to put in it and then set about building the drawers to
suit. The top right hand drawer has a cutlery tray in it to hold the cutlery,
the drawer in the middle holds tea towels/table cloth & pot holder etc, the long
drawer at the bottom holds the pots and pans, and the larger utensils such as
tongs, the square drawer on the left holds all our plates, cups, glasses &
The reason for the four light switches on the panel above the
tap is to control the led light on the kitchen, a versalite above the kitchen
for better lighting during cooking, another versalite equivalent above the table
for eating plus one main switch for the lighting in the main tent area (these
lights also have there own individual on/off switches), the red button in the
centre of the panel is the on switch for the electric water pump.
We leave all the electrical wiring, water and gas cables
connected at all times thus the reason we made the recessed section at the rear
of the kitchen, the cables can all neatly slide into the trailer with the
The pole that holds the lid of the kitchen open also acts as
the holder for the versalite.
We made a table with a single fold down leg, the opposite is
supported by the tail gate, we are then able to pull out the kitchen, and we
then attach the shelves to the side of the kitchen for additional space.
