About us


Servus, my name is Katharina. I’m a photographer from Austria. Welcome on my blog: a tree for 2!

When I was a little girl I fell in love with a very special, tiny house in my home village. Years later this particular house was for sale, so we didn’t hasitate and bought it.
The special thing about the house is a huge Linden tree which sits right next to it… and I really mean right next to it!!! about 10cm bark to wall!
I just love this tree (and I’m normally not the typical tree-huger-type of gal) but the idea that the former house-owners didn’t log it but leave some space within the roof for the tree just melts my heart.
In March 2013 my love Martin and I decided to hitch up our knickers and renovate the old house with a little L O T  of help from our friends (and family). At the same time I started the blog sharing all the photos, before & afters, renovation stories, house tours and all other bits & pieces which bordered our path so far.

I hope you like our little corner of the internet.

Love to hear from you: hello |at| atreefor2.com
