I love this house. I am unsure of what the ground floor room is for? Maybe an elderly relative or for when you retire? I love the toilet and the way the kitchen/diner has a view right through to the sitting room, but there is a wall to stop guests from seeing the dishes and in my case, when I need to disguise that food hasnt turned out how I like.
I love the tap on the kitchen sink. We now have one that extends and has 2 spray options, but I like how this one is long enough to go around the whole sink and looks more controlable. On the stove area there is a special fish cooking drawer?!! wow.
And a new to me idea, no tumble dryer but the bathroom turns into a drying room? Again, it rains in this country a lot, why dont we have this? Although I do think a bath that reheats your bath water maybe a little like a lobster being cooked in a pot and I think that is a step too far for me... But being able to swill the bathroom floor down like when washing down a dairy, there are drains built into the floor. Genius. No need for a mop bucket, this should also be in a kitchen and porch area.
Did you see that they have strict laws to stop your neighbours house from blocking your light. We should have this here. (Before some one spouts the right to light, good luck with trying to fight that in court. People are now able to build with out planning permission, as they can build within permitted development. Although in some cases they need the neighbours go ahead, their roof pitch or angle of the roof could still cut out your light. Again, this could be a costly bill to go to court for. you need big deep pockets. Your neighbour can build a single storey extension with a height of up to 3 metres to the apex, your window will be lower than this...)
A tap in the drive to attach a hose to wash the car or water plants! Fabulous. now if it was connected to under ground tanks that collect rain water that would be amazing. Can you see I am gathering ideas for our next house??? lol
Hows it going? We were OK through storm Doris, just a half hour of the power being off, storm Ewan gave us some more high winds. It is quite cold out, and now from being warmer than Greece last week, we are going to be colder than Moscow...!!! And they say there is no such thing as global warning. Other than these storms we seem to be having, I actually remember it raining more when I was a kid. Not as heavy as we are having it now. But I do defo remember always going to school with an umbrella, maybe not a coat but the umbrellas was always in my bag. I know I live in a different county away from the sea now, but am I dreaming this up that it rained more often? Am I just remembering drizzle?
What gadgets do you think every house should have? Just incase we have to build a house...
