house names?

heehee...My mom got inspired by Robert's comment & got out her Norwegian dictionary...

Since I read the blog, I looked in my Norwegian dictionary and this is what I can find so far. Robert only looked for castle and I agree--those are ugly words.

house = hus (pronounced 'hoos')
Brittahus? I like it.
cabin or hut =hytte
Brittahytte? cute
housing =dekken
yard =tomt or gard with a circle over the a
kitchen =kjokken (o with a slash thru it)
Make yourself comfortable or at home =hygge

Those are the words I have access to--couldn't find cottage and couldn't think of other words to look up. If you have other words you want me to look for, let me know and I will see if they are in my tiny dictionary.

Since the mid-20th century exterior pretty much prevents the "Castle Britta" moniker, I do like the idea of "Britta-something Scandinavian" and "Brittahytte" has a nice rhyming rhythm to it (say "Breeta-hueta" while pointing your lips the whole time), but I think maybe it would get butchered too often...any other ideas? ;)

Back to packing & sorting for my garage sale next weekend...the garage sale was going to happen anyway, but conveniently now I can just pack & be done with it vs. only sorting... :)

Hope you're all having a good evening!
