The quick story onthe house: it was the only one we looked at. 160 sq m, which is about 1750 sf. I didn't want to look at it because it was "cheap" at 1190 Euro (a little under 2,000 a month--our allowance is 1330 Euro a month). 5 bedrooms, 1.75 baths, all German village. Exactly what we wanted. A garden for Martin, a big yard for Sarah and Cora, lots of seclusion for all of us. It has a basement and a huge attic for storage, and TONS more space than we have ever had. There is a German kidergarten just down the hill that Sarah should be able to attend next year, and hopefully Cora too, once she turns two.
