Sorry guys I hope I don’t bore you with our roadtrip-photos.
These are the last ones. I promise! But we had such a good time and saw so many beautiful places I want to share with you!

The Bregenzerwald region is famous for its love for wood. They use it a lot within their architecture. Classic as well as modern houses tend to have wooden fronts (to protect the brick exterior walls from the weather conditions)
Typically they look like ruffles or scales of a fish. (we bought 2 square meters of “ruffle shingles” and we are going to install them indoors at the treehouse, I’ll keep you updated with this project)

Speaking of timer…
In Anja’s hometown there’s a family business who makes comfy wooden shoes made of locally produced wood and leather. They are hand made and really unique. You can use them as garden shoes for example. We will use them as “sun-deck-shoes”; we are going to have a no-shoe-policy in the treehouse but if we need to step out on the balcony we’ll do it wearing our new wooden shoes (or without shoes at all in summer! … really looking forward to that!)
I bought a pair of shearling goat shoes.

On our last day we went for a walk in the afternoon sun. It was just perfect. I’m really in love with the beautiful town of Bezau!

We had a look at the newest projects of local architect Markus Innauer.
And we saw a beautiful abandoned house in the center of Bezau. If anybody feels like renovating a very old Austrian home let us know. We will make sure to spend some working holidays there to help you!

We enjoyed Vorarlberg so much it’s totally worth a visit!
Thank you Vroni, Karl-Heinz and Anja for having us! Hope to see you soon!

    • Hallo Susanne. Ja, es ist so unglaublich schön dort hinterm Bödele!
      Das Haus auf den Fotos steht tatsächlich in Bezau (gleich gegenüber von der Kirche, neben dem Hotel Gams) aber ich werd sofort beim nächsten Besuch das verwunschene Haus in Au (be)suchen! Jetzt hast du mich neugierig gemacht! Danke für den Tip! Alles liebe, Katharina
