The first glance out of the window

5 cranes on 1 construction site - looks like they want to get things done before winter.

Wow, the building company is really pushing now. Since today we have five cranes at our construction site!
And the builders even work on Saturday morning…

We just came back from our weekly walk to the site. The floor of our apartment has been casted in the meantime and the elevator shaft has been poured as well. Its getting really serious now for us.

Looking westwards out of the second floor. In the background one can see the Neckar valley.

As we found the fence standing open just in front of our future stair case, we used the occasion to have a first look into the building. In my mind I almost heard the “bing” of the elevator before its doors swung open to bring us to the roof garden floor.

Unfortunately, we could not get up into our floor because the stairs are still missing. But at least we took a first glance out of the windows of the second floor. Now we just have to add another 3 meters in height in our imagination.

In eastern direction we can overlook the other buildings of our block.

How can it take another 8 months or so before we can move in? We are almost bursting from pleasant anticipation!
