We are finalizing the lease for our new home. Its not like anything I envisioned for us, but I feel confident that its a good fit and I'm happy with it.
The development is brand new and our unit is a town home. It's in a small town on the outskirts of Wiesbaden. Instead of looking like a quaint little German home though, it looks like it belongs somewhere in Destin, FL with its bright white and orange stucco exterior. It completely stands out compared to the neighborhood around it! We looked at close to 10 rental properties though before making this decision and its pros outweigh its cons by far.
Construction won't be complete until mid-August to beginning of September though, so pictures will have to wait.
We'll have to get a couple things for our new house. Closets aren't standard here. Only one of the apartments we looked at had a closet. So we will need to buy some storage for clothes and some other minor items.
I'm excited to move in and start making it our own. I've been looking up lots of gardening ideas. Our backyard is super tiny, and the fence separating us from the neighbors has no privacy. I want to make it a little more homey and private with plants, so I've been looking up what plants are easy to grow, maintain, and that will flourish here. It'll been a fun project. Hopefully its not too late in the season to be trying to establish things!
