To house the washing machine, we created a recess into the stud wall, with a chipboard back, to be plastered, between airlock and toilet to provide adequate space in a tight area.
The pantry was modified to include the fridge enclosure to keep the kitchens sense of openness to the north. As this is the entry point into the main living space, it was felt that a fridge enclosure here to the north, would enclose the kitchen too much, and compress it’s sense of openness.
The internal doors are shipped lapped 300×45/35 oregon boards lightly sanded, with a hidden (rebated) top and bottom rail to tie the
door together. The boards will only be fixed at the top and bottom, the shipped lap will remain unglued to reduce the likely hood of warping allowing the boards to expand and contract independently.
