We have some new photos to add to our display.
The building is a two-story apartment building, which is unusual in itself. It was build by German prisoners of war after WW2, so it’s considered good quality.
As with most entrance ways, it’s nothing to write home about (although I guess that’s what I’m doing, isn’t it?).
As soon as you walk in from the outside, you enter the apartment, which is uncommon. The advantage for us is that most stairwells (including the one we endure now) are terribly nasty, since no one takes responsibility for them.
The hall is huge: nearly 400 square feet, so we can treat it like another room. So for a mere $1000/month (mere!), we get 4 large rooms, plus this hall, plus a decent kitchen. That’s a steal around here.
As you might imagine, furniture from scratch is a major expense, so we welcome any help towards these costs that you can offer.
The room here is becoming a multi-purpose room, probably mainly for our office and schooling (although until we get another table, the kitchen will do). Lydia also likes it to practice her hoola hoop.
The detail that the owner did I like a lot.
The boys’ room is wonderfully large, so there is plenty of room to set up their train set and their tent.
