For Those Who are Nosy , Like Me!

The official Epiphany web site has some new pictures! Our narrowboat is now well and truly finished! I have written some about our journeys so far, in the last 2 months, as we “settle down” on the Kennet and Avon canal.

The new pictures are of the interior in a folder of their own. They show the stern cabin, bathroom, bedroom, galley and saloon. The ideas have worked!

In the stern cabin we have two spare bunks, narrow, but we have tested them ourselves and they are very comfortable. There is absolutely no wasted space in the stern cabin, with storage under the bunks. The engine is accessible under the steps and everything is easy to get at.

The bathroom, a cross bathroom, is spacious, light and warm. The shower is full size and the loo a Thetford cassette. We also have a spare cassette stored in the stern cabin. There is a large airing cupboard over the calorifier and a small cupboard over the sink. The washing machine is under the port porthole, built in, with a drawer and tiled shelf above.

We are very pleased with the bedroom, with a folding cross bed that folds up and a fixed bit on the starboard with storage under. We have bedside chest of drawers and a small dressing table. There are over bed cupboards too behind our bendy lights.

The galley is great. Everything is in drawers with a cupboard under the sink. A freezer is tucked under the granite section of the worktop. There are cupboards between the bedroom and galley, storing cleaning materials and a pull out larder with a cupboard with fixed shelves over.

The saloon is cosy, lots of shelves for books, a built in TV, drop down table and of course our Morso stove. Abutting the starboard galley bulkhead is a cupboard that holds the printer and other computer paraphernalia.

Overall Epiphany feels light and airy because of the large portholes, houdini hatch and mirrors. When the side hatches are open in the saloon she will really be flooded with light and sunshine (we hope!). We think we have achieved a modern, contemporary feel with traditional touches here and there.

Over the next few months our website is going to be “under development” as BJ rationalises, edits and makes it more “user friendly” So please do let us know if links no longer work, but bear with us as this happens! I will continue to blog our journeys etc, which eventually will have their own section.
