[Cob] smallest house design / kitchen appliancesDavid Knowlton pilot1ab80 at hotmail.com

compact machines cost more, and parts are pricier - supply and demand - fewer are made. in the south it is traditional to build the kitchen separate from the house. it keeps the house cooler, and if the kitchen catches fire, and they do, you don't lose the whole house. you might check out some boat or camper designs. the contractor that redid the kitchen in my 750 sq. bungalow was a genius. big appliances, no wasted space. plenty of counter space. he used software. you could also pick up a pencil and decide what you can't live without. then design from scratch. david >From: "Jilly" <JILLPRUETT at peoplepc.com> >To: <coblist at deatech.com> >Subject: [Cob] smallest house design / kitchen appliances >Date: Fri, 24 Oct 2003 08:34:39 -0700 > >In an attempt to plan the smallest cob house possible, per the advice of >the cob-building books I have, I am having trouble with the design.
