Our New Home

In My day to day on July 7, 2010 at 11:11 am

As I am sure you are all aware by now we have finally purchased a house. It’s in a small community about 35 minutes drive from Lunenburg, called New Germany.

New Germany has an approximate population of 500 people. We also have a grocery store, elementary and high schools, gas station, the all important liquor store and a few other bits and pieces including Guppy’s restaurant (more on that later). New Germany even has it’s very own website:

Here is a picture of our new house. It’s small but very cute with lovely maple trees in the front garden (we’re thinking of starting our own maple syrup company)

The first weekend we got the keys we were busy painting the inside – sorry I still have to take some pictures. However, here are a few of the garden!

A trip to the garden center and we soon had it looking pretty:

The next job was to get rid of the horrible old flag stone and replace it with chipped rock. Guess who that job fell too (I like demolishing things):

Not a very flattering picture but I wanted to prove that I was working hard too!

Next we got the pressure washer out and cleaned up the front of the house and the steps. What a difference it made!

There is still plenty to do. This weekend we are off hunting for some more furniture. We have plumbers coming to look at replacing the bathroom, construction men looking at our driveway and building a garage for us. It’s a busy time but lots of fun making it our own. Will post more pictures as we get the work done. I’m trying very hard to be patient and not let my “everything needs to be done now” attitude get the better of me. However, if anyone fancies a “job” (we pay in beer if you’re lucky) painting or gardening etc – give us a call!
