German House Rebuild


Rebuilt house .. impact driver ... Old Mustangs .... I'm going crazy over here!!!!

I'll be in Denmark in a few weeks - I think I'll borrow my mothers SMART since I don't feel like mortgaging my house for gas while I'm there.

Do you have the Mustang at your house there? I can't even imagine how rare that car is there. I saw a black 68' last year at Lake Garda in Italy ... luckily I was on foot - I almost walked right into a telephone pole.

We're driving from Denmark to France so stopping by might be easy haha.

German House Rebuild


I picked up a new toy! It is Sunday and I've been cutting wood all day . There is no way in hell I could ever do that with a gas chain saw. Sunday is quiet day. This little saw rocks. I'm really impressed. Don't snub your nose at these electric saws. Dolmar is a sister company of Makita. They are so light weight you can use it in positions that you can't a gas saw. It went right through a 12" stump. You don't have to pull start them, buy gas and 2 stroke mix. Just plug them in and go. You can use them indoors with no exhaust smell. For the average home owner these are more than enough. I will never give up my gas saw but for quick cuts I will grab the electric from here on out. Mia was claiming all the sticks as her's. dorf dude...

The Mustang is not at the house right now. I need a shop first. Here is a try at posting a map image of where I'm at. dorf dude...

Today I had the neighbor come by, he has a construction firm. He will be working up an estimate for pouring the slab of my workshop. The new addition will be 1300 sq ft, that added to my 800 sq ft will will make it quite large. I will post more as this thing goes forward. We get daylight savings next weekend so I will have more time to work on projects after work. The only problem is at my job they are projecting us going on the road starting in June. Things are getting tight and I haven't even started. More pic's as things happen, dorf dude...

Yup, a 14a electric is a good tool to keep around! In the middle of winter, we get 6 to 8 foot logs into the truck cut with a gas powered Stihl for smaller stuff or the Dolmar for the larger, then we cut those down to size with the electric inside the woodshed out of the freezing winds. I didn't know Dolmar made electric saws, but if they're anything like their gas model, it's a dam good saw!

Oh, the reason I mentioned 14a is the wife brought home a BB store 'special' a few years back.... 9 amps and wimpy as all heck.
I had her take it back.

For older electrics, try Craigslist or yard sales.

I got busy on the big wood pile that I've been collecting the last 3 years. It has to be gone before the foundation work on the shop begins. This is going to take a while. The other day a local store had fruit trees on sale for 5.99. I bought an apple and cherry. I got them in yesterday. In less than 12 hours Mia attacked it. Lessen learned here. Fence around it. Here are a couple pic's, dorf dude...

Today I put another window ledge in. I just have to give it a couple days to dry and then grout it in. It sure is nice Not having to buy things. I just walked out in my yard and started picking rocks from a couple of piles. If it's free then it's for me. dorf dude...
