Congratulations! Or, as I say to my hispanic patients who've just had a baby, "Felicidades!"I really like the woodwork in the living room and I do think that the kitchen is quite attractive. The bedroom, however, is shockingly white. And why, exactly, is there a cupboard in the shower?? Do you get to keep the cow butter dish? :)But one of my main questions is - why is it a selling point to have an outhouse in the backyard? An outhouse is a bathroom over there, right?? Isn't the indoor bathroom sufficient?Questions about terminology:- What is a double bedroom?- What is an electric shower?- What is double glazing?
They have decorated the place in a neutral way to sell it, but you're right: they have made the bedroom WHITE by filling it with white things.Why not have a cupboard in the bathroom if there's room? I have one at the moment and it's useful.The outhouse was very likely once a toilet, but has now been converted to storage space. A lot of these ex-tenements feature outside storage belonging to specific flats. So yes, I am happy with a single toilet and will not be requiring one outdoors...A double bedroom is one in which a double bed will comfortably fit. A smaller room would be a single bedroom or "box room".An electric shower is one where the water is heated by the shower unit in the bathroom itself, rather than just being a conduit to the mains water supply. They are usually weaker than showers connected to the water tank, but they never go cold.I have no idea what you call double glazing over there. It's where the windows are 2 panes of glass with an insulating area in between, rather than a single pane of glass.We're in negotiations as to what is included in the sale, but let's just say that it will not be falling apart on the basis of a butter dish...
Oh, I have nothing against having a cupboard in the bathroom. But having it physically be in the shower strikes me as a little bit odd. I have never seen anything like that over here. And over here we just call them double paned windows.
