After our strenuous day of house hunting, it looks as if we have actually found our future home. And best of all (in addition to Meike's garden and Andrew's Hawaiian-themed cellar bar), we finally get to live in a proper city, not just a 'burb! It is located in the east of Duesseldorf (Vennhausen) in a brand new neighborhood, i.e. lots of other new families to make friends with. We should be able to move in around the middle of November.
I love that climbing structure on the playground! This is the mums' hangout.
The front of our future house. Sophie's room will be the right window on the second floor.
The obligatory German bathroom picture. Notice the towel warmer already built in.
The top floor guest/library/play/cozy hangout room.
The site of Andrew's future bar (and pantry and laundry rooms)
Finally, look what's on the street corner - I hope they serve spicy ice cream.
