Changing Rooms

The English rose hunt is on | No comments

It’s amazing how you can live somewhere for years pondering over a problem and then one day the bleedin’ obvious hits you in the face. Yesterday we realised that the new fridge was never going to fit through the door between the living room and kitchen, at least, not without taking the doors off and struggling (which is what we did).

The problem we’ve been facing is that despite the fact that our kitchen/dining area is pretty big, there’s not a lot of usable wall space because of the positioning of doors, radiators and a cute wooden supporting structure that’s used to divide the space into three pokey little rooms. when we realised there would be a problem moving the fridge into the kitchen we thought “Why not swap the kitchen and lounge?!”. What is now the lounge has far more usable wall space and would allow for a centre island and still have room for a dining area at the end where the stage is1.

1Don’t get excited, it’s only about 6 inches high and 8 feet across and the only performance that has ever taken place there was about seven years ago by a Norwegian poet friend of mine, Øystein Wingaard Wolf. We call him Ø for short.
