Another disaster area is the small, windowless kitchen. There are just two gas rings and no space for the oven, so the oven is in the junk room next door. (The electric oven only works if you connect it to the socket for the shower.) There is also no room for the fridge, so that has to go next to the table in the dining area. In fact, there is not really enough room for cooking in the kitchen, whereas I was under the impression that this is in fact the purpose of every kitchen. But not in China, as sensible people go to a restaurant instead. The kitchen also seems to do duty as a cockroach kindergarten.
