the house we are going to renovate is really special. I know that house since I’m a little girl and I allways loved it. I never saw someone living there but I thought it’s the coolest place on earth (obiously at this young age I haven’t been to really cool places like Brooklyn NY, Rio de Janiero or Melbourne, Australia!).
What makes it so special and outstanding compared to all the other houses I know is the fact that there is a huge tree standing right next to it (I mean REALLY right next to it … maybe 10cm away). The former owner didn’t cut the tree when they decided to built another storey on top. Instead they left some space in the roof so that the tree could still be a part of the house.
What a groundbreaking idea for ca. 1950!
A few years ago it was for sale and my family bought it and now we’re spending some time and money on it to let it shine like new. Keep my fingers crossed we will succeed!
