Why no microwave? - Seems like a microwave would substitute for an oven. I would even do without one of the burners.

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: A Tiny, Happy, Eco-Friendly Home
The front door opens into a small kitchen and dining space. A sink, prep surface, portable electric range, and small refrigerator are all that's needed. Shafer has become the king of storage solutions over the years. While distilling his belongings down to the essentials is part of the answer, this home is also full of subtle shelves, drawers and closets. For example, most of the dishes are stored on a shelf above the sink.
Becky Harris added this to 6 Efficient, Eco-Friendly Projects
Using every square inch of space wisely and paring down one's possessions is paramount when living in a home this small. Next time you're cleaning out your cabinets, think about what you would keep if you were moving into this home. It will help you figure out what you really need.
8. Ecofriendly Bare Essentials Homeowner: Jay Shafer of North CarolinaThis movable 7- by 16-foot home is combined with an equally tiny home next door for a total of 620 square feet of living space. Jay Shafer, founder of Tumbleweed Tiny House Company, calls this home (along with his wife and young son). This energy efficient and ecofriendly housing solution relies on the basics, including a bare-bones kitchen. The front door of the house opens into its small kitchen and dining space. A sink, a prep surface, a portable electric range and a small fridge serve the family's basic needs. A shelf above the sink holds most of the dishes and other kitchen essentials.

Lisa Frederick added this to Single-Wall Galley Kitchens Catch the 'I'
Two-cook chaos. Multiple cooks easily can trip over each other as they tread the line from fridge to stove to sink and back. If you frequently cook with a partner, try to divide tasks in a way that minimizes bumping elbows. Or simply agree to take turns.Foot traffic. If your I-shape kitchen sits in a crossbar between frequently used rooms, it might become a passageway between them — and cooks' frustrations can mount quickly. Assuming you have the option, ask family and guests to use another route. What other advantages and disadvantages of I-shape kitchens have you found? Please share your experiences in the Comments below.
