Inspired by some of the other cart/island setups i've seen on CG, here's the new home for my S1/MME. The right hand cupboard has bottle & flojet, the left hand cupboard has beans/cups and other random paraphernalia. One last remaining project is to mod a drain into the drip tray

My place.
I couldnt wait to find something I liked.
So I modded this with a new top to fit the Tea and put the hutch on the wall for clearance.
Not too bad. I like the dedicated coffee space and my wife gains more counter space.
The kitchen sink is just to the right on the other wall.

and here's some internal plumbing
(kind of a mess, but it works well and can't be seen unless I open the door)

Posted September 14, 2005 link

My setup is very similar - FloJet and bottle in a cabinet in the cart, etc. I have found that the FloJet is almost the noisiest part of the thing, especially as it's in that echo-chamber of a cabinet. Have you found the same? How has mounting yours on the wall impacted that?

If I take the FloJet out of the cabinet and put it on the floor it is VERY quiet ... but in the cabinet the vibrations get passed into the cabinet wood (I'm guessing).

The flojet is the noisiest part.  I had the same experience as you when I first mounted it.  There was plenty of noise amplification.  I changed the mounting to be very loose (it's just 2 pins in the wall spaced for the flojet "feet").   Now the flojet is just kinda hanging there and it's as quiet as it was on the floor.
