This is our future home - or should I say our little witch's hut?
It's a timber frame building, dating from 1620 (edit: we found out later, that the house is even a bit older and probably dating from 1590). You find this lovely house in a small German town in Lower Saxony. This town counts about 3000 inhabitants and 400 (!) timber frame buildings.
We had been looking for an old house as our future home for quite some time. But either the buildings were in a shabby condition or much too expensive. Found this one more or less by coincidence - or was it fate? Anyway, good old internet told us about this house, we went to take a look at it and knew, no felt instantly: that's it!
As you can imagine, there are lots of things to check before buying a 400-year-old house and there will always be a lot to do and mend in and around the house - and that is exactly what my husband and I are going to tell you about in this blog.
Have fun reading about our adventures and feel free to write (ingenious...) comments!
