I am not exactly sure why houses have a rumpus. In some homes, it is used as a game room, exercise room or a video room. For us, the rumpus is the place where old furnitures go. At some stage, there were so much pre-loved desks and tables in this room, we nicknamed it the ‘Crumpus’. On the lead-up to this painting project, I managed to sell most of these ‘abandoned’ furnitures via eBay. Now, it’s practically empty.
Functionally, we use this room for our desktop computers and the ever growing computer peripherals we’re accumulating. Since it is adjacent to the family room, it also serve as the video library. It’s not a nice room to be in during summer because of its big windows that gets a direct hit from the sun in the morning. In the winter however, the heat from the desktops is enough to keep the room warm.
