My dad bought a 60+ year old home in our old neighborhood for a rental. It was definitely a fixer upper. It was originally built as a house, but 25-30years ago it was turned into a duplex with a real small kitchen upstairs. The space between the front of the sink cabinet and the wall is about 60inches. Add a fridge and stove on that wall and it makes for a narrow walkway. Which is the only way to get downstairs.

Dad decided to turn it back into a house. To take advantage of the kitchen area upstairs, he got rid of the stove and full size fridge and just put in a kitchenette with a microwave cabinet and an under counter dorm fridge. Due to the non standard size, I had to build all the cabinets. The toughest part was being 400 miles away and only getting to measure it once. Actually dad had to go back and recheck a couple of measurements, but all in all it turned out.

I will get pics sometime of the downstairs kitchen also, which some are standard HD off the shelf, but some are custom also because of that chimney goes down into the lower kitchen also.

Can you tell I like sketchup?

Nice job with the SU. This is the great advantage of building stuff ourselves when we have to deal with non-standard spaces, nicely done.
