    We built our house during 14 years and now we try to realize the last project. and we need a little bit help....

    It has a wall to be removed and the home front are supported, then the gable is covered again. The stones are processed on another site in a new brick wall.

    Es muss eine Mauer abgetragen werden und die Hausfront gestützt werden, dann wird der Giebel wieder verkleidet. Die Steine werden an anderer Stelle wieder in einer neuen Mauer verarbeitet.

    The Eifel region is an area of highlands between Aachen, Cologne, Koblenz and Trier which is quite untypical of the rest of Germany’s landscapes. Visitors don’t normally think of this nation as volcanic territory, but dormant volcanoes have formed a lot of the higher ground, although it’s hard to spot their influence in the likes of the Swabian Alps, for example, down near Stuttgart, where erosion has produced a plateau.

    This region is an enriching one in which to walk, through neatly kept villages of half-timbered houses, with plenty of visitor variety in the shapes of castles, abbeys, cliffs, lakes, and waterfalls. Its windy, hilly, under-utilised roads are also popular with motorcyclists, who come here for weekend rallies. Mountain bikers are well served with a network of off-road routes, and for motorsports enthusiasts there’s also the big attraction of the Nürburgring, Germany’s original Formula One race track.
