The house is similar in style to Gatehouse St, but turned up on its front - both are narrow, but Gatehouse St was long and on 2 floors, Canynge Road is short but tall on 5 floors:-
Basement - self container flat, in need of a reno in 2011
Gr fl - kitchen and dining room
1st fl - lounge and music room
2nd fl - master bedroom, en suite and Stuey's office
3rd fl - two guest rooms (one doubling as Nicky's office and a general dumping shop right now) plus Jack and Jill bathroom between the two. The bathroom can be accessed from both bedrooms, so we hope Jack and Jill get on well!!
We all love IKEA furniture, especially putting it together, which is difficult enough with the instructions, you know all those smily faced diagrams with no text. Well if you want a challenge over the Xmas holiday, try putting some of it up without the instructions!
The cats have settled quickly. The previous owner didnt have a pet, so there is no need to wee in every spot that smells have the past owner's hound or mog. And they are loving having thier stuff back from Australia, particularly the bed, ottoman and rugs, with thier smells and fur. So we are all feeling better as a result of getting our toys off the boat from Melbourne.
The kitchen has lots of flash gismos. There is no need for a kettle as the is a contast boiling water tap. The video shows Nicky opening her plate warmer! Our Mrs Beeton books seems like anacronystic in here.
