Back when I was working on the LAMI tall ships, I was often running the galley. It was common for five of us to be working there, with about 4x6 feet of floor space, and not bumping into each other and getting along fine. My current housemate, OTOH, seems to be capable of filling our 10'x10' kitchen to capacity all by himself. We have four counter work-spaces, the sink, and the stove, and he can come in to get a cup of coffee and have all six locations filled to capacity; I have no clue how he does it. I've learned to just leave the kitchen 'til he's done, as nothing's going to get done while he's there anyway.
Portland doesn't have a tall ship. It'd be nice to do something about that. I'm kinda overbooked as it is, tho'.
