The history of our old Ammerländer farmhouse in Westerstede actually started in 1690. For us, it started in summer 2012 when the house was for sale. It was gotten into older years and had been partially renovated. For years, we had been looking for an old farmhouse with an adjoining building in the district of Ammerland that we could renovate and use as a holiday flat with a place where you can park your vintage car.
In the synopsis, the year of origin was supposed to be in 1860, but later we found a graven wood truss with the engraving: „1690“. Even still living relatives of the farmer’s family told us that this truss has always been hanging above the door in the hall.
