Barry's 5.0 Galley Rebuild

Borrowing Jim's Galley plan.

After spending 6 months in Pidgeon Forge, TN. work camping under the maple trees the camper was filthy and I was fed-up with two small drawers and a bunch of big open cavities in the galley.
After washing/waxing and removing everything from inside the trailer to clean it.

I stared at the galley and I just could not stop myself.
When I came to my senses this is what I found.

Well I've opened up a few hidden spaces but...........

You certainly have a blank canvas to work with. I'll be interested to see what you do with it.

I will use the plan from Jim, along with ideas from Chris's website. Add a lot of time, thinking, frustration, and I will complete the job. A pick of cabinets I built for my RC plane trailer. More to follow!

Uh oh, this could be contagious. It would cost me $$$ though as I don't have cabinet maker skills. Still, if I were to do it one thing would be make the counter higher.

As the main chef in the family, I would too. Not everyone is short, and there is space awasting!

Today I used the old counter top to mock up. Helps me find problems early. The sink is adjusted to the final counter thickness of 1.25".
