With a few plumbing pipes attached and a bucket underneath to catch water...all we needed was the water! We hunted around for a foot pump, water tank and faucet—both online and at the marine store—but didn't find anything that worked for us. Then the lightbulb went off: Bill suggested we buy another Berkey water filter. If you don't know about Berkeys, you should! They can turn the nastiest water into pure, safe drinking water, and they do it with style. We love the one we already have, the smallest stainless steel model. We opted for a bigger model, the Royal, for the screen house, so we won't need to fill it as often. In the picture, you'll see our Travel model filling in as the water source while we await the Royal's arrival in the mail.
So, the bureau became the sink on one side. We use the drawers on the other half for our propane camp stove, JetBoil, pots and pans, dishwashing soap, etc. With shipping pallet doors installed on the sink side, the kitchen was almost ready for action. Next project, was to build a box of wood to fit the drawers taken out of the bureau. That piece holds our food now, with our sweet steel Coleman on top for anything we want to keep cold. (The cold is courtesy of half-gallon ice blocks we swap out from Susan's freezer.)
