The neighbors moved in.

My new neighbors moved in last week. We sold my mother´s house next door to mine about a year ago and for about a year I had to hear pounding and drilling. I never saw a house that took so much time to be remodeled. But then, the new owners much have lots of money because they turned my mother´s house in another twice as big. Last week, some very big moving vans came with furniture. I did not see much, but Leticia watched every movement and told me about it. And now, I listen to the children playing and pounding on the fence until wee hours of the day. I hope the children will learn to play at the other side of their house. How are your neighbors?

Our neighbors are very quiet, one has 5 children, the closest to our home has 2, but we only hear them playing during a few hours in the afternoon, never in the evening.

I remember that Switzerland has lots of rules against noise. At least that was so when I visited there.

@marguicha It is still the same, we have strict rules against noise. This is one of the reasons why we moved here.

@marguicha I agree. The ones we use to have their yard looks like a junkyard filled with so much crap.

My brother told me last week that the neighbors has told him that they would like to build a very high fence between my house and theirs, because theirs is a 2 story house now. I will say no. It is not legal and they would take away all the sun from my garden. If they don´t want to be seen they can buy curtains.

At this time of year my next door neighbors are out of town so it is relatively 'quiet' from that town house unit right next to us BUT 2 doors down is a young woman who must be deaf cause her music can actually be heard vaguely in my end unit . . . annoying but not so bad cause it is NOT loud everyday ! I hope the young children do not annoy your silence times too much either

@marguicha think back to when you were just a young mom moving into a new place and try and not fear the worst but hope to embrace the better--- perhaps you might even become friendly neighbors . . .

@marguicha Nosy people can be annoying. At the end of the day you just learn to live with them, and try the best you can to keep them out of your business.

Our neighbours are several hundred yards away so we're lucky in that respect. And their children are grown up now.

It sounds like you will have friendly neighbors. We don't have much contact with our neighbors. Here we will close the door when we are home. We will just say hi to each other when we meet but that's all.

I have two little boys on the end of the hall. They play so nice together. I have a new neighbor across from me. She has some kind of child with special needs. He is making loud noices that can be a little bother some. I am understanding to his needs. So of course I don't complain. I just turn up the tv. But it's going to be nice to moved soon. I love the place I live but it's not my forever home.

My neighbors are good to live by, as I don't bother them and they don't bother me. I actually know very little about my neighbors because I never pay any attention to whatever it is they're doing.
