Tananger House: Part 2

If you missed the first part of the house, you can get caught up here.

We left off showing the dining room. You probably saw the beautiful handmade sign hanging on Madi's door. The two bedrooms upstairs are off of the kitchen/dining room area.

Madi's Bedroom

Since we had more space in Madi's room we were able to put her rocker in here rather than out in the living room. We used the same decorations that she had in her room at the apartment and added a dresser to help store her clothes.

Master Bedroom

Right next to Madi's room is our master bedroom. We have an on-suite (a rarity for Europe) and a bathtub, which we wanted for Madi. The bathroom is about the same size as the one in the apartment, but this time we don't have to share it with guests! :-)


Going down the staircase off of the playroom, there's a bookshelf providing some great storage. You can see the front entryway when you are standing on the stairs, which we also like. There's a lot of rooms downstairs - a bathroom, bedroom, playroom with bedroom/craft room, pantry, laundry room, hobby room, and storage rooms.

Downstairs Playroom

This is a bedroom/craft room off of the playroom. I think it was intended to be a bedroom and then this area a sitting room, maybe. We have a twin bed in there and got a free desk for my sewing machine and scrapbooking stuff.

Pantry, Laundry, Hobby Room, and Storage

The basement just keeps going and going. Next to the playroom is the pantry with the deep freezer and storage area for stockpile. :-)

Off of that room is the laundry room. There's even a chute built-in so we don't have to haul clothes through the house! Oh and there's also a sauna. Although I don't think we will be taking advantage of that feature since neither of us are big sauna fans.

There's a door to the left just before the double hamper and that leads to a hobby room, complete with a tool bench, and two big storage rooms. There's also a separate back staircase from the outside of the house. We can close off this area of the house completely and do that so the cats don't get trapped back there.


Jumping back to off of the dining room is the patio. You can get to the yard through a door on the side and there's lots of play room. We are starting to see some beautiful flowers come through as spring tries to make its way to Norway. :-)

We hope you enjoyed the tour and if you are ever in the Stavanger area let us know and you'll have a bed to sleep in! :-)
