Kitchen Unit



The start of the sink/cooker unit. This unit sits permanently on its own casters, unlike the pod. Allowance in the frame base was made for the unit to sit over the wheel arch.

The next time I build such a unit, I will use a good quality plywood, rather than MDF which I used for this one. The MDF is fine, but I found it does have certain weaknesses which require extra re-enforcements, such as the front of the drawers when pulling them open due to the heavy duty catches used to hold the drawers closed. Another problem is that it tends to swell when it gets damp/wet, which also obviously weakens it as well. 



Another sink/cooker view.



Drawers slowly being made to suit the size of jars and cans etc.



Bit of varnish to finish off, but still have to fit the oven door and sink.

And again below, but without the background.

The above photo doesn't show the sink in place, the glass covers for sink and cooker tops or the glass door to the oven. 

Drinking Water Filter System

We have also fitted an extra tap (shown above and below)

 

which draws water via a charcoal and ceramic filter which is supposed to remove all sorts of bugs etc. Any water used for drinks, cooking or brushing teeth comes via the filtered supply.

The filter assembly is mounted inside the sink unit.

The unit is supplied/manufactured by Doulton. The outer plastic casing unscrews to expose the renewable ceramic filter.

Again the filter easily unscrews. Above photo shows the filter after about a years use. Below is a new one.
