Attached, are updated kitchen drawings based on the meeting we had on Friday afternoon. This is the single wall minimum storage kitchen layout that we arrived at by the end of the meeting; i.e. no food storage, no refrigerator, no island, mobile stove, single oven, and an area for a future coffee cart project

Based on discussion at the Rebase meeting and further kitchen meeting(s). I am proposing a single wall minimum storage kitchen layout.

[edit] Summary

The Kitchen will not be going away.

Based on discussion at the Rebase meeting and further kitchen meeting(s). I am proposing a single wall minimum storage kitchen layout. This would be a slimmed down kitchen with less to clean and maintain. It is focused on hacking and events. Items removed would be: food storage, closed cabinets, and the island.

See the plans below:

File:Noisebridge - Sheet - A507 - Kitchen Mission.pdf

There has not been a general agreement to remove the central island. (comment moved by Jarrod)

[edit] What Will Be Done

(Based on the 07/09/2013 Rebase meeting, this proposal is being modified to include a refrigerator and no longer change the 3 compartment sink.)

I am proposing a quick initial demo phase and then a longer rebuilding phase.

Phase 01:

The first phase is a demo cleaning phase. While it may sound drastic, it will not leave the kitchen with any less functionality then is intended in the final phase.

Phase 01 includes removal of the food storage and a severe reduction of the cabinet space.

All food will be removed from the kitchen. Items in the cabinets will be reorganized, donated, or discarded. Temporary open wire shelves will be used to hold the remainder of the existing stuff. The kitchen island will be demolished except for the stove (The Noisebridge mosaic will be preserved). and the area of the island under the stove will be opened up. The cabinets will be removed from the kitchen, broken down, and placed in the dump pile for removal. A bracket will be installed to support the existing shelf over the sink. The remaining equipment, floor, and the area of the kitchen will be deep cleaned. Safe pest control stuff may also be used.

Phase 02 is a longer cleaning, improving, and rebuilding phase.

A period of cleaning and ongoing pest control will occur while the new kitchen equipment is being sourced, built and installed. The goal of phase two is to create a more useful and more accessible kitchen. All major equipment and counters conform, at least, to ADA guidelines whenever possible.

OVEN and MICROWAVE: The double oven should be replaced with a more reliable single oven and lower to the ground. This will go where the refrigerator is currently. This will be installed in a full height cabinet which will also contain the microwave. Above this will be shelves to hold the hacking/event equipment: chafing dishes, burners, fermentation tools and so on.

SINK: The existing 3 compartment sink will be moved and lowered for greater accessibility.

(In Progress 08/21/2013) STOVE: The existing stove top will be mobilized; built into a new counter top with wheels attached. The stove will be outfitted with an electrical plug connector and outlets will be installed in areas likely for the stove to be used. An extension cable may also be appropriate.

STORAGE: Above the sink, sturdy functional drying racks will be installed for dish drying and storage. Storage for knives and utensils will be attached the walls near the sink.

[edit] Why This Will Be Good

Removing food storage means less for pests to eat and less spoilage. Reducing size the of the kitchen will reduce the cleaning and sanitation burden of the kitchen. Removing storage and counter space will lessen the extents of the typical mess and clutter of the kitchen so that it has less impact on the east side of the Noisebridge space. Along with reducing the utility, removal of the refrigerator will lessen electricity costs.

[edit] Why This Will Be Bad

People like having a full kitchen and this will disappoint them. This proposal also may not be going far enough to make a difference.

When Noisebridge has hosted events, the long counter has been useful in both preparation and serving functions. Even smaller events, like serving snacks after classes, this central island has been useful in keeping food out of the classroom areas. If portable tables were drafted instead, they would quickly be repurposed for art projects among uses thus rendering these unavailable for kitchen purposes. If Noisebridge does not want to be a destination for events, then removal of the central island is desirable. Double ovens have been useful on multiple occasions. How are these problematic?

[edit] How Long Will It Take

Phase 01 could be done in a day.

Phase 02 depends on availability of funds, appliances, and materials. Most of the work could be done in a few days and Noisebridge could remain open during the construction.

Update: the stove has been installed.
