The kitchen measures 20 feet from the refrigerator to the wall the hutch is on and from the sliding glass door to the wall by the thrift store cabinet measures 13 feet. It is a nice, large space now that it is all opened up.
This photo shows the thrift store cabinet and rolling island. This summer the top was covered with tomatoes from my garden; that was the main reason I wanted this long cabinet. The cabinet looks smaller than it's length of just over 7 feet. It is 20 inches deep and 36 inches high. The rolling island is 48 x 24 inches on top and 37 inches high. I have so much counter top space now!
Right now the two lower shelves are used for onion, sweet potatoes, potatoes, citrus and hard squash. Of course this will change with the season. Our citrus will start coming in some time in November and go until June if we are lucky. When they really start to produce the top counter will be used for citrus and I will hopefully have shelves above this cabinet to holds the jars of dry grains, beans, etc.
The island that originally was stationary and used where the thrift store cabinet is now, was re-purposed with industrial casters and moves about the kitchen freely. It also has a cabinet on the one side that I use to store flours.
The photo below is one I also found in Country Living Magazine. They have used chicken wire on the cabinet doors. If I decide that I still want doors on the thrift store cabinet, I may use this idea.
