My mother has a former colleague who inherited a small old house in Munich some time ago. The house will be demolished soon and my mom asked her colleague whether we could take some plants from the lovely overgrown garden. We could, and while we did so back in autumn, we also took a peek into the large workshop at the back of the house.
Jackpot. Old, massive workbenches, wooden cupboards and dressers, tools, garden stuff, large ladders, shelves, lamps.... you name it. So last weekend, we flew to Munich, rented a huge van, filled it with all the goodies and hauled the stuff back to our house. It was quite an ordeal but definitely worth it. This will all go in our barn at the back of the house... the husband will have a very nice workshop indeed.
Fun story: We had a student helping us on Saturday who at one point sighed and asked: "But why in the world are you taking all that junk with you?". Hehe.
PS: The pictures show the "soon to be demolished" workshop in Munich AFTER we took the good stuff out! I´ll show you our loot in a separate post soon. And I wish this was our space... to be honest our barn is cute and spacious but needs a lot of work. I´ll show you that one too.
