We have a place to live!!! We will no longer be homeless come August 4th!
We picked the house that we were looking at before. We finally decided to go ahead and do a German contract since we kept looking and found nothing that was even close to the house that we previously liked! The landlord has been very easy to work with, so we feel comfortable with our decision. Plus our housing office offered little help, so we weren't benefiting by using them either!
It is a 3 bedroom/1.5 bath house with a combined living room/kitchen/dining area. Its a small house, but we're happy about it since it will really cut back on heating costs. Plus the house is brand new, and "low energy." The walls are made of special bricks and the heat is by a "heat pump," so no paying for oil or gas!! WAHOO!! And it is only minutes to base, so we won't have to worry about paying huge amounts in gas for the vehicle. Phillip is very excited about not having to drive an hour each way to work anymore!
So, no pictures yet. They are still finishing up some work, so I didn't want to post any til its done.
