Some of you may remember my thread about a friend's house burning & I briefly mentioned he stayed with some friends who had planned to move in with him temporarily. Well, those friends had moved down near Lake Charles & got a home but it was destroyed by hurricanes. They had to move back in to the trailer in the trailer park where my other friend was staying before. The trailer is a mess & they want to re-do the kitchen completely.

One of the friends (we'll call her Lulu) sent me a few measurements. There are 3 walls (all exterior). Left wall is about 10', center wall is 11', right wall is 9' 6". There is currently a 4' 2" counter parallel to the center wall but they want to get rid of it. I believe the right wall is shorter because of the door/entrance to the trailer being along that wall. It's been years since I was in there so I can't remember the full layout.

Lulu said she wants the fridge, stove, and pantry on the left and the sink on the right. The center wall is useless because it is is full of giant windows that are just about floor to ceiling.

Ceilings are only about 7' high (I remember them being fairly low) so there is not a lot of head room.

I'm trying to figure out the best and most cost efficient layout for them. Fridge is 23.74" wide x 29.45" deep (including handles which stick out about 2") x 66.93"H. When door is open it is 46.75" deep. Sink is 33"x22". Did not get stove measurements, but I'm guessing they are fairly standard. There is a 35"W metal shelf for the microwave.

This is the fridge:

This is my rough sketch thus far

I don't know if there is enough space to add corner base cabinets or even corner wall cabinets on the wall with windows as I don't know how far the windows stretch over that wall. I believe it does leave enough space for the depth of cabinets and fridge though.

They do not want to lose any of their living room space.

I *think* the current sink is on the 4ft2 peninsula section that will be removed.

All of the cabinets will be purchased from Home Outlet in Alexandria

From my calculations they should be able to fit a 60" base cabinet and two 24" base cabinets flanking or next to it. The 60" one is currently $169

The 24" base options are:

one drawer + 1 door for $88

3 drawers for $148 (currently out of stock at that store but should come back in)

4 drawers for $209

Obviously, the entire space doesn't have to be used up so smaller cabinets could be used or different sized ones could be used.

12" base (one drawer + one door) is $73

12" base (4 drawer) is $139

15" base (one drawer + one door) $79

15" base (4 drawer) $120

18" base (one drawer + one door) $82

18" base (4 drawer) $131

18" pantry (if it will fit-- is 7' tall) $185

21" base (one drawer + one door) $114

21" base (4 drawer) $180 (out of stock)

I will need to figure out the best layout for a pantry, fridge, and stove to be on the 10' wall.

Lulu says she wants the sink more to the right because she's left-handed and wants more counter space to the left.

Editing to add that I'm thinking of going with 8' of counter space because the counters are sold in 4', 6', 8', 10', and 12'. A 10' counter would have to be cut down. So an 8' one could work if she got a 12" base w/ drawers and a 24" base with drawers to the left of the 60" base. I'm still trying to work out the fridge/stove/pantry layout on the left side of the room.

Another edit: She wants the stove to be between the fridge and the 35" pantry shelves (which will also hold the microwave). She also wants to go with 8' of countertop on the side with the sink.

Anyone have suggestions?
