ago we started the process of combining our
apartment with the one next door. It was a
bureaucratic nightmare; but finally the end is in
From summer 1998 until February '99 we
had all of our belongings piled up in the living
room, including the refrigerator (the kitchen was
being redone, we couldn't cook), and we lived in
a small sliver of the bedroom. We will never
renovate again! Without being able to escape to Li'l House, we would have
lost our minds completely.
When it's finally done, the apartment should
look terrific: Beate will have a studio, Klaus
will have a study, and there will be a guestroom.
You are all invited to the housewarming party;
originally scheduled for around Xmas, then
postponed to Valentine's Day; the new ETA is now
"sometime later in '99."
Here are some pictures from the renovation.
(Note: The above was written in 1998. The renovation is now
complete, and it looks great.)
