Checking out the New Pad

Just last Sunday we got to go inside our new flat for the first time – it’s practically finished! We were checking for any damages or changes we need before they finish. They did a pretty good job, we only found a couple of things that weren’t straight – light switches, that kind of thing, so no major problems.

The apartment is great! At first the lounge/dining area seemed a little small, but walking around it for a bit, it was ok. Big enough to fit the sofa and 42inch tv we’re planning on buying 😉

The balcony is great, really big, and a nice view of the mountains

We’re having it tiled so it will look more like a terracotta terrace (the balcony that is, not the view of the mountains – too expensive).

I have a tatami room which is a good size and has a hanging rail for kimonos to dry (or other clothes I guess).
The alcove is a little small but it’s ok.

The kitchen is great! Nice big hob and sink, and a dishwasher 😉

Can’t wait to have a nice decent kitchen with more than one gas ring! Can get back to cooking properly again, yay!

The bathroom is also very exciting, it has about 3 sauna settings, mist, micro, and some’at else. Apparently you can read a book, wearing glasses in the mist sauna and the book and glasses don’t get wet. I’m a little skeptical about this however.

The other 2 rooms are a nice too (although only contain cupboards so not too exciting) – the bedroom and our office.
Overall, can’t wait!

We spent a lot of money on that day, choosing curtains and other accessories (the tiled balcony, a UV screen over the big window to block 30% of heat and uv rays, etc.) oh, and a name plaque for the front door with our names on it! First time I’ve had one of those 😛
