Interior Cabinets – Streetside Galley
Since the bath was enlarged fore and aft, the galley had to accomplish its purpose in a smaller footprint. There was also the requirement to include a water heater and more countertop space. The water heater was addressed by installing a Bosch on-demand system in the back of the deep pantry, it is usually wasted space anyway. The pantry width was narrowed for the bath extension and more storage provided under the sink and under the dinette seats. Additional countertop space was obtained by using the space behind the stove and adding a fold down countertop extension.
A reminder of what the old galley layout was:
Fabrication & Installation
Everything is test fit as I go to get the clearances and curvatures right. Blankets are a must on all the floors at all times to keep tools and impacts from damaging the linoleum. The Bosch on-demand water heater is mounted in the back of the pantry closet on the forward face of the bath wall. The Reflectix insulation covers the wheel-wells.
Secured in place, you can see how the streetside wheelwell is hid under the back of the stove area, allowing storage in front. The fold up countertop extension clears the window opening and curtain when stowed. The other image shows the full extension drawer slides for the under sink storage mounted to spacers front and back.
