German House Rebuild


Ok, I froze my Vodka and cracked the seal tonight. This stuff is so smooth it is dangerous! It was banned in the USA in 1978 by the FDA and ATF. Go to Wiki and search Bison Grass to find out why. On a DIY note I worked on my stairs. Photos when I get a little further along. dorf dude...

German House Rebuild


Dorf dude -

thanks for telling me I am now a criminal. Every time I came back fro Poland or Belarus, I brought back a bottle fro various friends without knowing I could have been put in jail.

In Belarus, they often freeze the bottle and accompany it with a bowel of cold shot glasses in ice water. The instructions were to put a shot in your mouth and let it warm up and to get the flavor before swallowing. - Not a fast process and not good for a typical "Russian" style toast. This was mainly more than 10 years ago, so maybe the statute of limitations has passed in the last 10 years.

German House Rebuild


Caught up to this thread for the first time in a while. Spent Christmas over there right on the German/Czech border, closer to the "triangle" than where you are now. Near Phillipsreut, Germany and Strazny, Czech Republic. Yea, there was a lot of snow over there. For us it was a nice Christmas, maybe not so much for you. We went south to Spain for the new year's though

Anyway, nice to see your progress

You were about 2 1/2 hours away. The snow last winter sucked that's for sure. If you happen to get over this way again give me a shout. dorf dude...

Shu,

Welcome back!

I just Wiki'd the Vodka. Sounds like typical US BS!! Won't allow entry into US due to coumarin but prescribe coumadin for patients to thin the blood... Seems to me this stuff kills 2 birds...

Looking forward to yur progress

German House Rebuild


Ok, Way off topic here but this is a DIY but it is not mine. It is from a guy that lives in Germany and sometimes works around where I work. He built it himself. It is a 1930 T bucket with a V12 BMW motor. Absolutely the sweetest sounding car I've ever heard. This will be a treat for any gear heads. Here are a few Pic's I took today. dorf dude...

That V12 BMW is a piece of work. - Light weight, not big displacement, a beast to tune and adjust, but great output and a real jewel. Did they have to stretch the frame and change the suspension (obviously) because of the length of the engine?

Has the owner even taken it up to the Neurebering (sp?) for one of the weekly opportunities to run the 11 mile lap while running with and dodging motorcycles, busses and German test/developement cars with camoflaged bodies?

Very impressive project!!!

That is Incroyable with smooth running V-12 BMW engine and if you listen to the exhaust sound it sound like muted 12-71 Detorit Diesel.

That guy really blazing on the main road I am pretty sure he is crusing at least 125 KMH easy.

Merci,
Marc

I got a new camera today. I had to do something with the extra cash I made in Poland. It is a Canon IXUS 310 HS. This thing is the bomb! Now I have to figure out how to use it. Here is a pic of my garden jungle. Many people have commented on it. They like it, it's different. dorf dude...

German House Rebuild


Last week I found this self leveling laser for 40 bucks! I had to buy it of course. I set it up and checked the ceiling of the ground floor. It isn't too far out. Around an inch difference. I used a meter stick that showed the red beam. The lower the number the higher the point. I have one sink area because the beam was not square that I screwed the planks to. Now it's time to start setting the beams for the upstairs floor. Here are a couple pics. The new camera has a great wide angle, 24mm. dorf dude...
