This is what we've come to call a "one-butt kitchen," small enough that two people cannot really participate in the cooking process at the same time. Electrically underpowered (all outlets on a single 15-amp breaker), the hood over the stove is sometimes inadequate to the task of removing even normal levels of cooking fumes or smoke. It has cheap and cheesy cabinetry, and very little counter space available to perform prep tasks. It's hopelessly undersized for any sort of entertaining, and we've had to do some rather clever shortcuts to make things work. We manage, but life would be much better in a larger kitchen with a better spatial design. Did I mention bigger?
