Living Inside a Windmill

It was my assumption that a windmill is just for milling or pumping water and nothing more. It really does have those purposes but one thing I didn’t know was that people can live in here. Looking at the windmill, the body is quite big so it is not really surprising that some people have come to make a windmill their home. The first floor of the windmill here at De Museummolen is the residence. The second floor and up is where the windmill stuff are. I was pleasantly surprised to see that there was a full fledged house here inside a windmill.

Considering the size of the windmill, it is actually quite spacious inside. The floor plan basically revolves around the central pillar of the windmill which is of course off limits for safety reasons. There are rooms around the body of the windmill including a sitting room, a bedroom and a dining room. One may think that it is rather cramped here but considering the circumstances, they did a very good job of making use of the available space.
