free a tree

Our tree was somehow part of the house and the roof as you might have seen in this post here. When we removed the truss and untiled the roof we also freed the tree.
It is such a beauty and amazingly huge!
this is how it looked with the wall built around.
footnote: before & afters are my favorite!
my dad and the tree – a dreamteam!


the money pit

oh boy.
I thought I was prepared for the removal of the terrace and the wooden porch our constructor did yesterday…but when I was visiting the site in the evening I felt like Tom Hanks in “the money pit”.
The house looks really really tiny and sad now and I desperately hope it will look like a home again sometime soon.

If you’re looking for me… I might be stuck in the floor waiting for martin to come home and rescue me! I’m here, honey!
