The naming of this room came about when I was moving into the Haus. The guys moving my boxes and furniture, from the farm, started calling it "The Book Room".
After carrying more than 25 containers of books up 18 steps on my very long staircase, they just assumed the room was for books.
Even though the room will eventually be for sewing, a guest bedroom sofa, TV watching and my writing, it will also house all my books.

The shelves filled up quickly. So, today I ordered two more from Ikea.
The room is far from completion....there are curtains to sew, more wall paneling to install, and of course, setting up my sewing area.

So very different from the farmhouse.....but, I'm beginning to appreciate the new life in Das Kleine Haus.
