German House Rebuild


Moving forward with the Pool Room. I've got the base frame set and have been checking my lighting to make sure it will be ok. This pic is with only LED lights. I have more to go in. We will move the top pieces tomorrow, I'm glad to have help for this. Slate tables are heavy! Here is an update pic. ps, I still need to clean up more and I need a lot more corks too! dorf dude

Stolen from a place in Germany. At first, I thought it was our friend, trying not to break noise rules.

I buy a lot of my materials from Obi. It's our Home Depot.

Pool Table is level and I'm getting the felt stretched. Any tip's on doing the pockets? Lights are set above it too. So far ok with some minor trouble with the pockets. Here are a couple pic's. The Fire Dept had a Fest today and marched down the street with the OOmpah band. Not really my style of music, esp at 9:30 Am. dorf dude...

There will be a spare bedroom and bath upstairs along with the pool room. If you go up the stairs the pool room is on the right bedroom on the left. Wait for the weekend pic's. I should be quite aways along. dorf dude...

Dorf Dude -

Don't pound nails or start your saw at 9:00 AM on a Sunday when the band is playing and waking everyone up. If you do, keep the windows closed, no one will ever notice your noise with the massive thick walls.

Corks (used), about 500, are coming to help you finish the wall off to the juction with the other materials.

How is the sound system working?

The other Schu - Dick

Thanks Dick. The sound system kicks butt! Bob Seger's Live Bullit albulm at 200 watts RMS is amazing through my Polk speakers. It's amazing, Really. Stop by and give it a listen. Thanks for your help. dorf dude...

German House Rebuild


I started getting insulation on the neighbors wall. The problem is it is at 2 different levels. Hard to see in the photo's. I will try and get a better pic. There is a big step between the current wall and old wall. I cut the insulation and attached it with hammer in pins. I will use spray foam once it's all up to finish seal the gaps. Here are a couple pic's. dorf dude...

A little hard to tell from the pics...but it looks like about 3/4" to 1" difference there. Could you glue another sheet on top of the low part to bring it out to the same plane?

I'm not concerned with the flatness of this wall. Just that it is insulated. The actual wall that I will use will be framed and not touching this one.There will be a gap between them. Thanks for following, dorf dude...
