The Small Homes Council in Champaign used this kit to help families plan kitchen remodeling. The walls, doors, and windows of the kit move so that homeowners can match their own room requirements. The pieces, representing electrical appliances and metal cabinets, can be arranged in many ways for maximum efficiency and use of space.
