A 160 square feet tiny house on wheels in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. Designed and built by East Coast Tiny Homes.  This one has some clever storage in the Kitchen as well as some other ideas to consider for mine.

When thinking about cooking in my tiny house… there are a couple of options.  I could have something that is electric or live life “cooking with gas“.  I’m also considering making a little outdoor kitchen that would be portable and built around  I do like to cook so I would like to This Summit Professional 20″ Gas Range in stainless steel is not only luxurious looking but is slim and compact so it can fit perfectly in my small kitchen. And since it’s powered by gas I can take it off the grid.  This one is $1,000USD.  I think I would like to create a cutting board that would sit on top of the range for food prep and would anchor into the gaps so it could not move.

Outdoor Kitchen:  I would like to have a small deck that would be in four squares that could be taken apart to move and it would hold the Brinkmann Medallion 5 Burner 50,000 BTU Gas Grill (Source: Home Depot Model: 810-4580-F | Internet/Cat: 824477 | Store SKU: 1000756353) 


The outdoor kitchen would have a simple custom designed counter-top with basic storage underneath.  The counter-top would support portable cutting boards.  My Colman Stove could be added if I was going to use the flat grill on top to saute/stir-fry things or boil water for pasta or veggies.    

Table Top Cooking Solutions:  I am not sure I want to have a cook-top that would be something like the one below.  I think I would rather have a range and can use the inside to store pans & cooking utensils and have the top flat with a custom butcher block.


By having something like this above would take away from the work surface… but on the other hand free up more room underneath for storage where the oven would take up space.

Above: This is the first video that inspired me. It would be incredible to have a small space like this along a beautiful lake. 24 square meters inside the apartment above.

Below is some other inspiring videos and I just find it interesting to see how people change the way the look at things and the space we think we need and all the items we fill our lives with.

I find these videos inspiring and makes me wonder what it would be like to think different and live different.
