German House Rebuild


I got the wall insulated and most of the sub framing finished. This was one heck of a framing job. Everything is crooked. I just had to pick a straight line and go with it. I had to get clever on the fastening. Here are a couple pics. dorf dude...

What brand of windows are those?

I am considering getting a German window for my home here in America. The company is called "Intus" and utilizes German engineering and frames. Here in the USA we don't have "tilt and turn" windows, casement would be the closest type.

The windows don't have a brand name. They were made local to fit my holes. I got quite a ways with the paneling. Took me all day. Cutting around the roof beams took up a lot of time. I got a good pic of Mia checking out "Her" Kingdom. It's one of the stumps we dug up. Here are a couple pic's. dorf dude...

German House Rebuild


I spent most of the day cleaning all the "Stuff" out of the room and shifting it to the Pool Room. It sucks not having a basement to store stuff. I put up more insulation. I ran short but this was left over from the foundation pour. I got quite a way's for basically nothing. More framing tomorrow. Here are a couple pic's. dorf dude...

Dorf Dude -

Looking good and it seems you are running out of unfinished space for temporary storage. Your framing is not the typical U.S. stuff, but is great considering what you started with.

What the vertical members (size) in the pool room? In photo, they seem very substantial and straight. Even though the interior portion of the wall carries no load, you will be ready for an Iranian bomb(LOL).

What did you do for the stair treads for Mai to get traction?

My latest collection of corks was too blah and colorless, so will still get a few hundred good ones.

Dick - The other Schu.

Thanks for following Dick. The upright post's are 8x10cm. The construction method is from my brain. I had to work with what was here and that wasn't much. I didn't put anything on the stairs for Mia. She just goes up and down no problem. I finished framing the one bedroom wall and got most of the paneling up. Where the framing stops will be another wall going left. I would say 90 degrees but it isn't, far from it. As this will be a guest bedroom I will need a bed! I will build in a set of bunk beds in this corner. This is going to be fun. You will just have to wait and see. Here is where I'm at so far. Notice the beam that appears about in the middle of the wall. That's how far out of square this place is. When the roofing company set the beams they offset them to try and take some of the crookedness out. dorf dude...

Some of that wall framing reminds me of the traditional way the Japanese frame their houses. Not the modern ones, just the traditional ones!

The wall paneling looks excellent!

Big progress today. I had some help setting the uprights, Thanks Kay . The room is getting much smaller as the walls go in. The niche to the right of the door will become bunk beds with overhead storage. Not exactly sure how I will do it until I start it. I've got a basic plan. Notice the 4 posts are made up of smaller sections glued and screwed together. That saved me a lot of money! Here are a couple pic's. I wish I had a wider angle lens. dorf dude...

Big progress today. I've nearly finished the paneling in the bedroom. Campbell came over and mounted the roof window in what's to become a bathroom. It sure lets in a lot of light. Next will be the bed room floor and bunk beds. Stay tuned! dorf dude...

Cork flooring going in! I had a bumpy start but it is getting there. There are no 2 walls that are parallel. I have to just start and then angle cut from the very beginning. I will have to make a tool for joining the floor pieces. I'm going to weld up one. Pic's of course when I do it. That new roof window sure lets in a lot of light. Here are a couple pic's. dorf dude...

Ok, so much for building the floor tool. It was 7 bucks, I just bought it. I'm really impressed how well these floor sections fit, no seam at all. I'm half way and now all kinds of crazy cuts are next. That's for another day. I'm finished for today. Here are a couple pic's. Thanks for following. dorf dude...
