A peek at the house, and some things I don't quite get

Not furnished at all, and random things here & there, but here is a gander at our new house.  Please excuse the clutter, I don't have anywhere to put "things" yet.  And sorry this post is so long...I just can't help but take tons of pictures.
View from our bedroom

Garage & driveway.  See that ledge?  Definitely already busted my butt off of it already.

Master bedroom.
Bedroom 2, aka the walk in closet

Upstairs hall.  Left door, walk in closet.  Right door, bathroom.
Left: bathroom.  First right: Walk in closet.  Second right: master bedroom.  Straight ahead: 3rd bedroom, currently storage room

Stairs looking down from top floor to bottom

Living room from entry way

Pantry #1

Tiny oven :(

Living room from patio.  Kitchen on right, entry way & stairwell on left

Downstairs looking into laundry room (right) & bonus room (left)

Laundry room.  Before you ask, I do miss my amazing washer & dryer from the States.

Bonus room, door to back yard

Back yard.  Puny, but good for late night potty outings

My house!  Not too pretty, but it works.

Entry way, stairs leading upstairs
Entry way.  Right: half bathroom.  Left: stairs up & down
I just don't understand some German things...
Okay, tub is there.  But why is the shower head in the middle of the wall?  Weird. 
Door.  Shut.

Door.  Open. 

Door.  Open from the top?  All doors & windows are like this.  Why???

Toilet a foot from the wall.  I'm the only person short enough to use this toilet.  What's the point?

My front door.  I can't leave the house without a key.  You HAVE to have a key to open it...very much a hassle.
Just a few more things...
Sass & Gloria the Hippo.

First meal in our new house.  Spaghetti!  

Sass being a cutie

One of the paths I walk with the pups

Lonely old bench
The End.


  1. Love the house. Once you get your things it will look much different. Know the pups will enjoy the path - until the snow comes...:) Glad you are in and can't think of a better "first meal" than spaghetti. Love you. Bethmom

  2. This looks so fun! I've always wanted to visit Germany...heard so many great things about it. The house looks like it will be lots of fun to decorate!!! can't wait to see what you come up with :)
