    On such a topic, you should always insert pictures of what you are talking about. F.e. to get an idea of the size of the house, or what you consider a "lovely area". I know that might be in other videos, but not all viewers view in chronological order, some will see this video in 3 years from now, by what reason ever.

    I went into deep research on prefabricated homes for a year in my architecture study. They have become SO GOD and you almost can't justify building traditionally and massive anymore regarding quality , Price and time. I am a little bit proud that you did proper unprejudiced researched on the topic :3

    I am happy for you as you seem to love your "dream-home". The building process in germany is terrible, we went throught the same adventures! Starting by searching an affordable plot of land, determine what we want to build and then taking the gazillions of decisions coming during the building progress. I learned to appreciate a saying : You need to build 3 houses during your lifetime: The first for an enemy The second for a friend and the third for yourself Its impossible to get all options and decisions right on your first try. You usually make a lot of mistakes (which means probably someone you dont like should suffer from them while living in THAT house) We love our house (the 1st one we built) but after 2 years there are already houndreds of things that could have been improved by making them a tiny bit different. The energy efficiency of our prefabricated wooden structure is great, we only need about 10 kWh/m2*year although having a basement. I personally would never consider a house my home without a basement for storage, "engine room" and my workshop. But thats also a financial decision as our basement was priced approx. 60.000 € as we have issues with rising water from the ground. I'd love to hear more about your decisions on floorplans, layouts of bathrooms wall and floor tiles and all the important details you need to make before having your dream home. And lastly I'd like to clearify that the german term: BauHERR und BauHERRIN is a big big euphemism. It should read BauKNECHT and BauMAGD as you are only serving and nor ruling during the construction :-) Only after finishing your project you may call yourself LandLORD and LandLADY.

    HolzhÀuser sind nichts Neues. Mein Elternhaus ist ein Holzfachwerkhaus von 1891, gebaut von meinem Ururgroßvater. Inzwischen ist das Haus 4x umgebaut und renoviert. Holz steht Stein in nichts nach und ist genau so stabil. Man muss sich nur damit abfinden, dass Holz arbeitet, sich bewegt, irgendwann mal das knacken anfÀngt und in trockenen Jahren mehr knÀrzt als in feuchten Jahren.

    one thing about the quality in germany it the law, that every company has to give 2 years of guarantee to private people. So when the product is not good, nobody wants to sell it, beacuse he can get into trouble with his customers. In Germany itβ€˜s called β€žGewΓ€hrleistungβ€œ.

    Hallo Antoinette Verzeih mir, wenn ich so offen frage. Ich bin nur neugierig: Was kostet denn der Quadratmeter Bauland bei euch in der Gegend gerade so? Ich komme aus dem Norden und bei uns sind die Grundstückspreise in den letzten Jahren ebenfalls explodiert. In meinem Ort (30.000 Einwohner) zahlt man im Moment im Durchschnitt zwischen 250 und 300 Euro pro Quadratmeter erschlossenes Bauland. Zehn Kilometer weiter Richtung Norden (nÀchste grâßere Stadt) sind es zwischen 350 und 400 Euro, zehn Kilometer weiter nach Süden (=Pampa) sind es deutlich unter 100 Euro. Wie ist das bei euch? Und Stichwort Bauen: Kennst du "Einmal im Leben"? Das ist ein Fernseh-Dreiteiler aus den 1970er Jahren. Geht um eine Familie, die ein Haus bauen will. Musst du unbedingt gesehen haben! Aber erst, nachdem ihr eingezogen seid. Dann lacht ihr euch schlapp. Kuckt das nicht vorher - sonst erschießt ihr euch. Sehr zynisch, sehr satirisch, aber hervorragend beobachtet und hervorragend erzÀhlt. Ist auch heute noch aktuell und sehenswert. :-) (gerade nachgeschaut: Gibt's für ganz kleines Geld als Stream auf prime video) www.amazon.de/gp/video/detail/B01MRFJSWD

    You made great decisions. Also in the future, there are advantages of a semi detached house: if you need to renovate something in maybe 10 or 15 years, you get better prices from the companies (like roofer), when you order them together with your neighbours (bigger assignments together with your neighbours=better prices). You can have good phases with neighbours and not so good phases, but if you are cautious during the difficult phases then it gets better and better the longer you are neighbours. (Better talk early about fences and bushes and make everything clear before building/planting something, then you avoid discussions. So was it with my parents.) (TVclip: people who comment in a nasty way have big problems themselves, hidden very big frustrations, no friends or appreciation of others etc., that's why at certain topics - especially where others in the videos/the youtubers gain something like happiness or a step forward etc. where some viewers have failed in there life, this topics attract very deep frustrated people. That's the simple reason for hateful comments. (I am also very frustrated that I never will be able to afford a house but just a nasty apartment* at a dirty, loud street of a run-down city area, but sometimes I like seeing happy people, and kids deserve always the best!!!) *just like this example, something like this: www.google.at/maps/@48.177609,16.4124394,3a,75y,136.95h,106.58t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sAs444mC_HVLYucaNPvbJaA!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo2.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DAs444mC_HVLYucaNPvbJaA%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D151.17749%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i13312!8i6656 then you dream very hard about an own house with a garden! Often I think, rich people do not realise HOW a quite big part of the population lives, they don't realise it, they drive through big city streets and don't realise, that there live MANY people.

    I am Dutch and what you're telling about parenting in Germany is also common in the Netherlands. I am 66 years "young" and I was raised that way and we did it also with our kids. We enjoyed it and our kids also, and they are confident and responsible adults now.

    Don't excuse your decisions. If you're waiting for the "perfect" whatever you may wait your entire lifetime. So you have to make compromises and to decide. We're absolutely happy with our wooden prefabricated attachment to our 200 year old tiny brick house. Built of bricks we would have needed thicker walls for the equivalent insulation value. And within 1 1/2 days a new roof and walls closed our house against weather.

    I totally get why all those restrictions on how you are allowed to build a house in certain areas are more than just a nuisance. I thought them to be stupid and narrow minded, when I was younger. But having travelled and seen more cities and villages inside and outside of germany, I actually came to like the strictnes. One of the reasons you immediately liked the street and area of your new home is probably exactly because of the area looking all kinda similar and "clean/in order". I've lived in a rather small town in Estonia, I've lived in Sapporo, Japan, I'm from Berlin and now live in Munich (with in-laws just outside the city). No matter where I was, when old houses were replaced by new (modern) ones you could barely tell whether you are in Germany or Estonia or whereever. Modern houses look so much alike and in my oppinion most of them are downright ugly! Groundprices in the area where my in-laws live, scyrocketed over the past decades. To pay over million just for the ground isn't unheard of in that area. Naturally, the houses build on these grounds are very luxurous, but they are so cold and uninviting! Only slits for windows facing the street, stone gardens and stone walls in the front. When you walk down the street over there, you don't feel like dwelling there. All you want to do is just get to the house as quick as possible. Letting the children try their rollerskates on the street (it has barely any traffic, so it is very safe) feels like you are disturbing everyone. As I said, it is very uninviting! (Luckily, my in-laws sold their big property and moved to a smaller, but very cosy one) So from what we have seen in your previous video (shape of the house) it seems to become a very lovely and welcoming house. If those restrictions are needed to keep a village/city/neighbourhood livable, then I'm totally for it (I'm getting sooo conservative with time πŸ˜… - I'm actually afraid where this is leading to πŸ˜‹). And for the attached house: every wall that doesn't face the outside does safe a loooooot of extra energy in winter. I just hope the neighbours are nice! Good luck and stength with building! And as all the others already stated, your house, your decisions! From what we can tell, they were informed and wise and we wouldn't do it any different (coming from a woodworker and architect πŸ˜‰).

    Loved your comment about people passing on their homes to their kids and their kids cuz that is so common in Germany compared to America. Also, grown children living in the same "double house" as their parents, sometimes with the grandparents too! Please do a video on this! Our neighbors own a free standing home up the street which has been renovated into four separate dwellings where each of their 3 grown children also live! Why young adults (20s, 30s) want to live out here in the sticks is beyond me! You mentioned Rob (?) grew up in that neighborhood. I "stole" my husband from his childhood town (Wuppertal) and forced him to the country but I feel in my heart he still longs to be there. But I long for Seattle more.

    In USA if you buy a townhome which is like your house in Germany the person who buys it is only responsible for the inside of the building and you have to pay the corporation to have them take care of outside care. I doubt if they are made as well as yours in Germany.

    Honestly I don't get the obsession with having a stand alone house. Sure, a semi-detached house comes with restriction but realistically speaking, having it at a good place is more important. Plus, with a semidetached house you don't waste any space. Just make sure that there is an expert having an eye on the process every step on the way. Might rescue from terrible surprises down the line. And if it doesn't, you have someone to sue.

    I know several people who have built wooden prefabricated houses and we are in Northern Germany with strong winds and rains and I have never heard any complaints. In fact my parents wanted to do the same thing, but the company they chose never came through with an offer and so they chose a different company and their home ended up being stone (the other company finally asked for a meeting when construction had already begun). In the end, you can hardly even tell, if a house was prefabricated out of wood or made out of stone by looking at it.

    Greetings Antoinette..yes I understand..where I live in Pennsylvania the housing market is very much up.. housing is very much inflated right now..just make sure the housing economy is good right now in Germany..in America you as a buyer don't build a semi- detached house a developer usually builds the semi- detached and then sells them individually..so it are you building 2 homes and then going to rent one..that could work as income for you..or are you just building on one that was already built??.. I'm kind of confused.. if it was me I would build 2 houses and use one as income..good luck either way.. blessings to you and your family πŸ˜‡ πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡ πŸ˜‡

    Hope you house build goes well. We built our detached house that took 4 years from finding to moving in.. Interesting we bought many materials from Germany..

    Hi, Back in the late 80's I built a prefabricated block house....that is to say the was a building kit where the walls are made of solid wood beams laid on top of each other and bolted together....it took a bit longer than yours, two weeks montage, but with lots of possibilities for self- and neighborhood help. The brilliant thing about a wood house is that you can move in immediately..... there's no mortar that needs to dry, and ambience of a wood house is just so cozy a snug from the very start. We also found after about twenty years, our neighbors who had built around the same time had all sorts of problems and renovation issues that we did not have.....we did do some renovating after 16 or 17 years, to fix some of the interior decorating which had been done a bit slap dash originally.....but the outside skin of the house, windows, roof, foundation, have been completely sound. So I'm sure you've made a good decision, especially if you've been careful that there are no toxic materials in the construction. At the time we were building, most pre-fab houses used a plethora of toxic materials which we were careful to avoid.....that led us to the idea of the block house....

    Moved into a wooden house 6 months ago in the Ruhrgebiet area. The house is lovely, we luckily could afford a detached house as prices are much cheaper up here. Ours is a KFW55 house, so it is well insulated and it managed to keep the inside temperature around 12 degrees C lower than the outside temperature when it was 40 degrees C outside! Looking forward to see how good it is in the winter. It definitely performs better than our old Stein auf Stein house in the UK! Good luck with your build, it will be worth it!

    here is a piece of advice: the fact that you are considering the building time to be an important factor leads me to believe that you are wishing to move in as soon as you can. do not do that. a lot of hastily constructed houses in germany quickly come down with mould problems because the walls aren't properly dried, this usually happens with one year constructions, where they start building in spring and move in before christmas. when you're building a house, it's best to build it so far that the roof is finished, then let it stand there, as it is, for one whole winter, before finishing the construction.

And it is save to learn them how to swim with clothes on at young ages allready in case of an accident.

    Gift in old German meant a present you give to someone, that meaning still is found in the word Mitgift (dowry). In the middle ages it was common to poison your rivals. So in common speech when speaking about how somebody died, it was commented "he/she got a gift" indirectly indicating that poison was mixed into food, clothes or wherever.... By the passing of time "Gift" became synonymous to poison.....

    I recently went to Poland/Krakow to train several accountants in German tax law, and invoice processing in SAP. Krakow is the Europes capital of Shared Service Centers for the biggest companies in the World. And i didn't experience any culture shock whatsoever. The mentality from Poles and Northern Germans are the same. I would have loved to stay in Krakow, marry polish woman, learn the language etc . This would be a lot of preparation, learning the language, which should be done before you migrate, and getting a job, that would mean a lower paycheck.

    So true! I love that they always put up the hats and such. Other things I love are the cat ladders everyone has who lives in a higher level apartment, and that it seems like everyone here stockpiles gummybears or treats to give to the kids, even like teens at the mall when we're shopping will stop and give the kids a candy. This is the most family friendly country for sure! Moving to a new country is so tough sometimes, and watching your videos have been a very kind reminder of what a lovely culture this really is here. Such a good group here, it's just hard to break through sometimes. I struggle to find my place here but watching these really help. Thanks! Cheers from an American Expat! :)

    Just a few months ago our house looked the same and now we almost made it :-) . Are you doing stuff by yourselves or is everything done by companies? Building an own house is an exciting time. I wish you and your family all the best for the new chapter in your lifes.
