澳洲Australia property Ventilation | Sydney
在澳大利亚 The pool at of an IP needs to be resurfaced (or so the pool doctor says), the cost was estimated to be $10K ($10,000), after recoverying from my impresssion of a cat coughing up a fur ball, it just seems far too much. Its just a standard poo I need some advice regarding a property purchase. Property - semi-detached house Bedrooms - 2 Condition - average needs internal reno to modernise Street - one of the best in suburb Location - excellent Close to schools - yes Transport - 50m
I'm looking at an off-the-plan 2 bedroom apartment.
The layout is as follows
balcony || lounge || dining || bedroom 2 || toilet || bedroom 1
There are no windows in the dining, bedroom 2 and toilet. There are windows in bedroom 1, and a slide glass door in the lounge which leads onto the balcony.
I know many terraces have a simlar layout (ie: with no windows on the sides of the property). I was wondering if any of you live in a property with this kind of layout? What do you like/dislike about it? Is ventilation an issue? Is the toilet prone to damp/mould without a windo (or is a strong exhaust fan a sufficient substitute)?
Thanks in advance.
How does bedroom 2 get natural light into it?
Exhaust fan for bathroom is ok.
We've a house a WC not on an outside wall. Fan works well when my wife sit and thinks for hours.
from the floor plan it looks like bedroom 2 has no natural light ...
Wow! A text based floor plan! I hope the developers gave you more than that as a floor plan.....
Bathrooms with no window are quite common in new designs - some buildings have a centralised exhaust system (where a building aircon is provided), others rely on you to provide. Pretty much what you find for hotels.
I wouldn't like a bedroom without a window (saw some when apartment hunting - very dark and claustrophobic), but bathroom is fine. My apartment has the bathroom in the middle with no windows at all, but has very good exhaust fans so moisture is never an issue.
I've heard that a bedroom won't be recognised unless it has natural light, so will be called a study. I don't know who said it or whether it's law or just a guideline, or if it's even true though, just remember hearing it somewhere recently.
Before you buy i'd recommend you ask the builder to include a bathroom
and maybe a kitchen..
