It could be worse. I could be attempting to fulltime in a rig like this! Lol.

Yes, I actually saw this rig in a nearby store parking lot!


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

No toe kick space?

Yes and no. That's clear as mud.

Will it be a traditional kick space? No.

I will be adding a little extra to the counter top, which will stick out a couple of extra inches, and will also help to keep things from rolling off of the counter.

Since the counters are already deeper than normal, plus the extra I will be installing, I figured I didn't need to add more at the bottom.

I may add a brass or copper piece at the bottom of the last drawer just for a little extra protection for the drawer fronts.

Between the extra counter overhang, and "my overhang", kicking the cabinets should not be a problem.

Anyone else have a little extra "overhang" in the front? Lol. Not expecting any answers to that question. Just rhetorical.

Our son came over today, and we worked on the 5th wheel for several hours, so I never made it to the moho. I should have some time tomorrow to work, though.

Thanks. Anyone else have cabinets without the Toe Space at the bottom?

When I designed these cabinets, I decided to try to use as much space as I could, so the bottom of the drawer is only about an inch off of the sub floor, instead of the typical 3 - 4 inches.

That will still allow me to install a floor and be able to have some space between the drawer and the floor for opening and closing the drawer.

The toe kick space is a great place to add heat vents but I am sure you have a different plan.

If you are worried about the lack of the toe kick space you can always purchase a pair of Red Wing shoes with steel toes, problem solved!

LOL!

Don't confuse comments with concern. I would not live in that thing as a ghost but I love watching this thread. It's just about the only interesting thread left on this forum. Carpenters amaze me and his skills are unlike anything I have ever seen. He does not think like a typical RVer which leads to unusual (and/or impractical) solutions/implementations. I get a chuckle out of many and I show some of the "best" to my wife just to see her cringe.

I was more interested in storage space in that area. Alost everything is a trade off. Which is most important, and the answer will be different to different people.

Cool!

With my "overhang", there's not a lot of danger of kicking that area!
