The kitchen ended up the size it is because it's what was left in the plans.

The cabinets are made from an old chicken coop we took apart and the appliance's are all from demo's of kitchens.

Yes I'm a Sanford and Son kind of guy.

Waste not want not is how I was raised. Not to mention I'm a cheap SOB.

Zagut....that is the kitchen of my dreams! I love it, it's absolutely gorgeous.

Bakechef, your kitchen is laid out exactly like mine! Right down to the appliances being in the same place and all. Above the sink in my kitchen is a window to the back yard, and behind the pic would be my dining room.

It's a small kitchen, but it works for me. The only thing that I really, and I mean REALLY dislike, is the lower corner cabinets next to the range. There are black holes in them , so deep that a person would have to practically climb in them to get to the space. I keep very seldom used things in there, if anything at all.

Here's my kitchen BTW.
That is a beautiful kitchen! I would love all that space.

Hmph. You can't just pretend the hypotenuse isn't there. Your triangle may have a very acute angle at the fridge end, but it's a triangle.

My kitchen is almost the same as yours (I think we even have the same countertop) except flipped 180 degrees.

I agree with one of the previous posters who considered the prep area more important than the fridge as part of the triangle. I get everything I need out of the fridge before starting to cook, so it really isn't part of the equation for me. I'd rather have a clear path between the prep area and the sink and stove.
