We’re Buying a Fachwerkhaus? Say what?
Every time we visit the new place, I have to wonder how I came to own a house with a barn. It’s overwhelming at times to think about the responsibility we’ll have. After renting for the past three years, we became pretty accustomed to not having to do anything. On weekends, we’d eyeball one another from across the kitchen table and wonder what projects we need to work on. Weekend after weekend, the answer was, “none.” Which, yeah, you may be thinking sounds amazing, but it’s really been boring.
We want projects and a reason to spend all day outdoors. We want to have something to call our own.
This house will be a huge responsibility and it will limit our ability to travel for long periods of time. It will require our weekends and I’m sure we’ll pour a lot of money into it. However, this house will be ours and will represent us. It will force us to work together on a common goal, the entire family, not just Chris and I.
Regardless of the commitment, we are so happy to have a place that has so much potential and will assist us in realizing some of our long-awaited goals and dreams. For example, where will I put my studio? I’m imagining some cozy, home-like newborn sessions like this one in this new space.
However, the most important thing to us is sharing it with our friends and family. After all, there is plenty of room!
And as for the kids, Annabelle is counting down the days until she gets to enjoy the new yard with her dog and Logan was happy to discover that our house is a Pokéstop.
