German House Rebuild


I started on the next wall. I broke it down into smaller sections because I was working alone. Slowly but surely. Here is a pic of where I'm at. Thanks for following, dorf dude

Roof truss's are in. We have a little bit leveling to do but not bad. Next is wall to wall reinforcement with threaded rod. That will keep the walls from blowing out. Easier to show pic's then explain it. Here is where we are at so far.

I assumed he was on a deployment to make a buck/euro or two for continuing progress through the winter.

Not a lot of progress. We got the vapor barrier in. I have 17 rolls of insulation waiting to go in the ceiling. I also have 30 recessed LED lights on hand. Most of the electric is ruffed in. I've been a little under the weather lately so that has taken the wind out of my sails. But yesterday Matt and I drove halfway across Germany to pick up my Christmas present to myself, 1982 Yamaha 650 Maxim. It is in fantastic condition with only 13k miles. I have always liked these bikes and they were not sold in Europe. So for me to find one with German registration was finding a needle in the haystack. dorf dude...

Ceiling insulation is in. Campbell gave me a hand. He also got the slats in and leveled. The ceiling is ready for sheet rock. I've also been working on the entry way. Getting a little bit further. I'm racing against winter. I won't get all the projects done but I'll push till the end. Here are a couple pic's. dorf dude...
