Project Name

Trash Stash


Jarrod Hicks


Create a trash and utility room behind the kitchen

What Will Be Done

Clean out the room. Remove the existing open framing. Remove the dishwasher and the cabinetry above it. Open up the Kitchen wall behind the dishwasher. Move the water heater further from the entrance to the room. Install organizational hardware for cleaning equipment. Move trash cans into space. Bonus: Install floor sink for cleaning, filling, and emptying mop buckets.

What Areas in the Space Will This Affect

Kitchen and the storage room south of it.

Who Will Be Doing It

Jarrod Hicks and anyone I can convince to help.

Why This Will Be Good

We can relegate all the trash and cleaning equipment to a place more out of sight. And possibly reduce its visual and olfactory presence in the space. A floor sink would make mopping easier, which may lead to it occurring more often. It would also provide a place to keep more hazardous cleaning away from the dishes. The framing material may be useful for other changes.

Why This Will Be Bad

The addition of a floor sink is expensive, and pluming and drainage issues are a risk. The room may need to be reframed if the existing framing is providing some sort of structure.

How Long Will It Take

Unknown, but closure should not be required.

In A Fantastic World, What Extra Budget Would You Like

Money for pluming and the sink will be required. If the room doesn't need additional framing, then the rest of the project is demo and throw out work.

Are There Any Other PFAs This Would Work Well With

The fermentation / Biohacking storage loft.
