We have found ourselves a little house in the country. For like ever Bo and I have been dreaming about living in the country, in a field surrounded by lots of green and the dream of no neighbours. But Bo and I like large Victorian houses with high ceilings and massive windows and ornate ceiling and lots of fra-la-la. You will not find such houses in a field in our neck of the woods. Most homes in a field in Belgium and The Netherlands are farms or tiny cottages. So we have settled for a tiny cottage in a field, in Belgium on a 5 minute foot walk from Dutch borders. With this kitchen window view:
It’s all about this now and not about the house. After 19 years and 5 renovations we have settled for a view and for a tiny cottage. A tiny cottage that is in a bit of a state. But it’s so tiny that it will be transformed in no-time.
It needs a new kitchen, a new bathroom and the heating and electricity needs to be updated. To us that’s not a big deal, we have done far worse. When all that’s done we are off to find a tiny home in Sweden. Hopefully we’ll start the house hunt in February or March 2017.
We have to move out our current home on the 21st so we are quite busy fixing up the cottage and packing up house. So far so good.
