Construction of the house...

In 2007, Carsten bought a house in the countryside, which was in fact an old school, originally built in 1952. The school having not been used for several years, the city decided to sell it for private use. A serious amount of renovating had to be done, and we spent all our evenings, week-ends and holidays four years long to this task. Our efforts were rewarded though, as our house reflects our personality and we are very happy in it.

Pen Kiriak…

In 2012, our house is finally finished (well…almost), so we can share our little corner of the world with you.
