Our back yard cabins are compact enough to fit in your backyard and come with a functional kitchenette. This consists of a microwave oven, hot plate, kettle, toaster, cutlery and crockery.

A small kitchen is called a “kitchenette” in American English, and is usually separate from the main living area of a studio apartment or a bedsitter (or “granny pod”) that serves as home for an elderly family member. Kitchenettes are also found in motel guest rooms and may include a refrigerator equipped with a small freezer section for cold drinks.

This makes the kitchenette a very limited space, as you won’t have room to store pots and pans. However, you can make some pretty tasty meals in a kitchenette by making good use of storage spaces, such as installing hooks on the wall to hang cookware and utilizing shelving for things like spices, jars and a collection of cups. For even greater efficiency, you can install a fold-up table or bench top for your meals.
