This is a very long narrow kitchen that was the back porch. 20' long x 7' wide. All the windows low and need to be replaced. 5 windows across the back that we want to narrow down to 3 for more wall room. Large outdoor kitchen to be built off barn that is being renovated also so there is no need to expand size of this kitchen.
Any suggestions are welcomed!

Instead of eliminating windows, could you install "half" windows which would keep all the wonderful light but allow cabinets and counters to be installed below the windows?

The window sills are 30 inches from the floor. Definitely will replace the windows and make them smaller.

Kitchens are tricky with clearances and circulation requirements. This current layout is a single-loaded "galley" configuration. It would be helpful to have an "existing" Floor

I was thinking of 12 inch deep base cabinets along the window side with countertops. Just not sure where to the fridge and appliances. Anyone thinking we should get rid of the window at the back of the kitchen for the stove or fridge?
