I'm intrigued with what house you finally end up with. I had the pleasure of visiting Amsterdam a number of years ago and was amazed at how furniture was moved onto some houses' upper floors - a steam catapult is one thing that astounded me!

In the "What is your most recent (whisky) purchase."-topic I can't help but noticing that you've been infected with the whisky-virus...That Macallan 25 will probably follow soon.
