First and foremost, do what the boss wants.



Backsplash looks fine.



Otherwise, most any laminate shop will have metal coving in stainless or aluminum, a bead of silicone under its foot seals against spills. The concealed mounting flange of the cove metal will attach to wall or countertop.




I used 5052 .032 for kitchen walls. Plain, boring, but covered all my fish-wire holes, and relocated infrastructure mods.


The countertop “tearing loose” doesn't happen if installed appropriately.

What a cool cabinet, the inset sink area looks clever.

Aluminuminum,

Is that the metal coving your talking about in the pics. I really like that and your setup looks really nice.

Thanks, The sink base is complex.


The cove profile looks like this. Most any laminate shop has it in stock. It”s on-line too, New York Metal aluminum cove.


Sink base and across aisle refrigerator cabinet have different sized blue, red, white Ikea “trofast” tubs that slide in 1/2” channel. Function as drawers, but removable and have lids. Refrigerator sits atop streetside wheelhouse, also has toe-kick to wheelhouse.

Cat food size tubs store atop the sink base wheelhouse. Plenty of toe-kick for big feet. Three group 27 batteries fit under converter panel(unfinished in photo). Batteries load in through re-purposed former refrigerator outside access.

The caulk will break free as the walls move differently than the countertop. Caulk anyway to keep out water as best as possible, then get some aluminum L channel, screw it to the backsplash with stainless screws and it will move along the countertop, but you can't see that theres been movement.

Very nice work. I was considering a new stovetop, that one is very pretty, do you miss the extra burners? I like your cabinetry work, did you do it yourself? Where did you put the fridge?

bweldon,

Back-splash looks appropriate, you already have it, it's an easy install, and the wife likes it...

When I showed the three color samples of light blue, turquoise, and coral Boomerang Formica to the Boss, I said I like light blue. She asked what other colors there were... “Just grey” I said. I got a lot of mileage out of that concession... Natural maple floors, blue micro-blinds, and a Pirelli rubber bath floor.
I'd concede to the back-splash. You may need the negotiating leverage elsewhere.


BTW, She was right, now I understand the grey... win win



aquinob,
After 50 years of “No Trace” camping out of a 20lb pack, cooking only on a Svea 123, two electronic ignition gas burners in an Airstream is quite a luxury.


With little room to work in a Globe Trotter, the extra counter space, microwave, campfire cooking iron, and outside plug-in gas grill works best for the two of us. The Cozy Cabin boat heater also has a cook-top. If we ever need an oven, we'll explore the world of dutch oven cooking.



The 2-burner cooktop is made in Colorado, found it on eBay.

The refrigerator is across the aisle from stove-top.


Yes, it is my work. All cabinets are the re-sawn ash gauchos, closet bulkheads, and doors. I cleaned and re-purposed every salvageable board foot of original interior.
