Two storied building = edificio de dos pisos
exhaust fan = habanico de exrtacción
wet grinder = trapiche / molinillo manual para cereales (I am not completely sure of this, but I think you would be understood if you used it)
soft toys(if you mean stuffed animals that children play with)= animales de peluche

PS according to RAE a rice mill = molino arrocero

This appliance is common in South India. It is used to make batter/paste from soaked grains and lentils. Modern appliances use electricity, but older, manual models still exist. I don't know a Spanish equivalent. Maybe molinillo para hacer una pasta de cereales would work.

Rusty, Good morning.

In your last post, you've written a expression very strange, your expression is My coins.

What did you mean by it?
My = my two cents = mis dos centavos/pesetas/céntimos = mi aportación/opinión

That's right. I guess it actually needs to go in the Idiom Dictionary.
