Outdoor Kitchen



Operating the Sink

The water my be turned off when you arrive. It’s easy to turn on. Look for the black knob under the big water cube and turn it 45 degrees so the knob handle is parallel to the pipe. This will make water available to the sink and shower.

At the sink, for cold water, turn the right knob counter clockwise. Water can be heated using the pans placed on the propane stove.

Using the Lights
The kitchen has a solar panel on the roof and a 12 volt battery. You should have plenty of electricity. Feel free to play with the switches to the far left of the sink to turn the lights on and off. 
  • Do not drink any water from the sink in the outdoor kitchen or the sink in the cabin. This water comes from the roof. Instead drink the water from of the two red and yellow Igloo coolers.
  • Since the kitchen is outdoors, stuff will blow into pots and pans. Give them a rinse before using them.
  • Stuff like paper towels will blow around in the outdoor kitchen. Leave paper in the cabin or weigh it down.
  • Avoid leaving food out overnight, since this will attract monsters.
  • Turn off the lights in the kitchen after you go to bed. Leaving them on will attract insects and run down the battery.

3 Burner Propane stove

1) Make sure burners are off. Have a lighter or matches ready. There should be some in the kitchen and in the cabin.

When you are done, be sure to turn the knob on top of the tank to the off position.

If you run out of propane, let us know and we will bring up another tank.

Oven mitts are hanging up by the wood stove indoors.
Using the Fire Pit
The fire pit overlooking the valley is intended for small fires. Wood for the fires can be found in the shed behind the cabin. Please be reasonable with the amount of wood you burn. Save the small stuff for starting the fire.
You can find paper in the white bin inside the cabin for starting files. Lighters can be found in the kitchen.
Any outdoor fire should be fully extinguished before leaving it. You can use the water from the pond.
If you want to cook over fire, you are welcome to do that. You will see a grill in the kitchen area.
