I took the advice of lots of folks here and bought a L5 propane on-demand water heater. I have a RV and the heater was a POS, so i figure an on-demand is worth a shot. Mine is mounted under my counter, takes very little room. If you have a tank, and its cold, watch out for freezing; I have welded up several tanks for friends that have split .

I wasn't a fan of putting an oven in our second build as it has only been used twice this year. The other side of it is that it makes the wife happy to have it there, and it's a cupboard most of the time so that space isn't really sacrificed. Just stick the cast iron in it and pull it out when it's time to bake.

Kitchen.

For what it's worth, I met a family going full time on a trip from Washinton, north to Alaska, now working their way down the Baja. I joined them for coffee and conversation the other day. They had no hot water, a single cold water hand pump. A 2 burner stove (oven didn't work). And no shower. They heated coffee on the wood stove. They were awesome people, and they were happy to make due with what they had to work with...

Our culture dictates what we want not what we need...
I once told my wife (now ex, now fiancÚ) I'd rather have nothing, than worry and stress over what I do have.

A really close friend built a new house and HUGE shop... I talked to him Monday, he now realizes (and regrets) that he's put himself in a situation where he HAS to go to work everyday.

Agreed. I recently read a book called Stuffocation. Its about our cultures' addiction to stuff. Keep it simple, less stress, more balance.
I like this guy:

Microwave/convection oven combo unit? 1 device two functions would save some space.
