Smallest kitchen contest

Okay LPB brought it up, and PF has mentioned it:

Who does have the smallest kitchen?

My kitchen is 7' X 8' and that is wall to wall. Actual floor space is 7' X 4' wide. As a one person kitchen, it's very workable. The refrigerator side has a 4' counter, the back half of which is taken up by microwave, toaster oven and blender. This leaves about a 4' X 1' working space.

The stove/sink side has about 3' available as a work space, the back half taken up by cutting boards, dish soap holding cutting boards upright, and a bamboo container holding cooking utensils.

How small is your kitchen?

No pictures. I don't even own a camera. Maybe sometime this coming year I'll get a digital so I can use the pictures online and never have to have them developed.

My house kitchen is ok 10x16 but my RV kitchen is tiny.
6' length total including sink and stove/oven.4' on the other side for fridge and pantry.
The oven has 1 shelf at about 8'' ht.It does have an extra outside 3 burner cooktop and dry sink.

I have cooked many gourmet dinners and even a Turkey/Thanksgiving meal in it.You just have to be a little creative.

I did a Lobster gourmet dinner in our pop up tent trailer when we had it.Went to Pikes market in Seattle and got some lobsters,fresh lemon pasta and tons of veggies for our feast.

Floor space is 4x8. I have 12 inches of counter on each side of the sink and each side of the stove. I built a cover for the stove so I could use my KA mixer in the kitchen. I have a folding 6 foot table I use in what would be the dining room if I didn't need the space for food and appliance storage.

I got pictures taken, but will have to wait until this weekend to upload and post.

Too bad I dont have a picture of my first basement apartment. The kitchen was 4ft X 7ft. It had a single sink, a bachelor sized stove and fridge ( meaning my 5ft 2in frame was taller than the fridge) and one 3 foot long open shelf. I had enough counter space for the small George foreman grill ( the kind that holds one chicken breast) a cutting board, and a dish strainer, and not all at once. If i wanted to use the cutting board the strainer went on the floor. We didn't own a microwave, which was fine cause there was no room for it.
Oh and the icemaker in the freezer was the kind that freezes a single long sheet of ice that you attack with a knife. Those were good times :)
