Oh, and I got my kitchen in. We were planning on using some extra wood counter top, building a frame and cabinets/shelves, putting rails for hang storage, and using a small sink. We made an ikea trip (literally just to walk around and eat meatballs) and saw this tiny kitchen that is absolutely ideal. It's called the Sunnersta mini-kitchen, and it was $112 on sale. I honestly don't think we could've built it for that, and it would have been much heavier. It has railing for hanging stuff, a small sink, decent counter space, storage underneath, and weighs about 40 lbs. When we get it secured into the wall and floor, I think it's going to be an awesome little kitchen.



While I'm thinking about it, let's talk water. I actually have an old 12v water pump from an RV that came with the bus. I don't thin I'm going to use it though. I am currently planning on using two water jugs--one acting as fresh water, the other as grey water. I've seen this implemented a few ways, but I plan on using a foot pump (and maybe an accumulator) to pressurize a sealed fresh water tank, then have it drain to an empty tank. Or I could always use gravity like another post I saw




I have a reverse-osmosis water filter system that used a 1-gallon accumulator. I've thought about making that work, but installing a check valve so the accumulator stays pressurized, but the tank doesn't have to. I haven't given it a lot of thought to determine whether it is actually a good idea, but it seems like it would be a great, cheap way to have water, and I wouldn't have to buy a faucet since I already have the one attached to the system.



Just thinking out loud at this point

Love the mini kitchen. Wish I would have known about that when building my shuttle bus.
