So that was sort of a cliffhanger, yes? I´m sorry. Turns out buying a house means a lot of work (and stress, and worries), and if you add quite a lot of work-work to that, and travelling for work, and a lingering cold, you´ll find yourself in a position where you just don´t want to log into your blog at 11pm when the day is finally, finally over.
Having said that, here we are. With a few more pictures, but not really of the house. Because you know what? I really only have a few very bad snapshots of the interior which I took during the viewings. Good thing we have the keys to the house now which means we don´t need to traipse around it and act like burglars any more! We can legally enter the house! So yesterday, we went. And when I turned on my camera, I realized I had forgotten to bring my memory card.
So that was that.
By the way, this is the view of the church of the village. The pretty, pretty church that is standing across from our house basically.
This is the view from our balcony. See, the house is located right at the village square and all the houses there form kind of a circle around the church (which is hidden behind the trees in this picture). Isn´t this pretty? At first we were looking for a free standing house with no neighbours at all, but this? I can take it.
This is part of the garden and the backside of the house. You´ll notice that we´ll have a lot of work to do in this garden. It´s pretty, ahem, wild? But then again, it has four plum trees, so all is good. This is a dream come true for me. I always imagined myself making jam with plums from my own garden. Also, we have a small walled-in garden. With a sizeable barn in it! Ha.
And a stream! Running through our garden! I can´t even begin to tell you how much I love this. (Until it floods our basement.)
Right, and here is a sneak peek at the interior of the house. What you see here is the living room and behind that the hallway and behind that the dining room. (A dining room! Hyperventilation.) It´s the only ok-ish picture I have and the one I kept staring for hours during this whole buying process, because, you know: Old wood floors. Crazy-beautiful old wooden doors. A wood stove. 3,50 meter high ceilings. It will all be worth it in the end.
