Appliances hide in cantilevered extension.

A 9-foot-long appliance garage is part of a 22-inch-deep cantilevered bay in the front wall of this house in Los Altos, California. The new pop-out is under the eave, its top and base tied into roof and wall framing, so no additional foundation was needed.

Owners Kay and Bob Schroer designed the bay as part of a kitchen remodel.

The outside wall behind the sink provided the longest unbroken space for a cupboard for small-appliance storage. Electric outlets are built into the unit's back wall. Along the 17-inch-high cupboard are five 20-1/2-inch-wide doors (the one behind the faucet doesn't open, though the space behind it is accessible from either side). These doors swing up and slide back beneath the tiled and windowsill.

Doors and framing are of red oak to match the rest of the kitchen cabinetry.
