          What is "flatting" called in other english speaking countries?

          Comment


            We don't have a single word for 'flatting' here in Canada. We would say that we are 'sharing the apartment with a roommate'. Which I have learned, is different than if someone from the UK said the same. In Canada a 'roommate' usually shares all parts of the apartment except the bedroom. They have their own bedrooms.

              If it is sharing a flat/house it can be known as a bed sit/house shsre/ flat share or squatting (If the house owner/landlord dosen't know )

                Flatting in NZ means sharing a house but having your own room.

                      Bedsit sounds like you are watching over a bed for someone else for a limited time. Like a babysitter does for a kid.

                        Some are that small that it feels that way

                        The worst thing is the shared kitchen and fridge. It always invokes the labelling of food kept in there such as 'Mike's sausage. Do not touch!'

                          That's horrible. The temptation would be too great

                                Overdue...have started a list of all my Weta stash and prices for insurance.
                                But they've changed links on their website and the OLD sold out stuff is mostly gone

                                  If it helps I have listed the original prices, in US$, of all "new generation" Weta Middle-earth pieces in my Google Docs list.
                                  I have started one with the SSW pieces as well but it's not finished yet...
