We have had no wind storms. This was just snow load. I know it doesn't look like a lot of snow on the ground but we've had a huge melt off over the past week. Lots of rain. If this rain had been snow we would have another 2 foot of snow easy. I don't know why he didn't pull the snow off. I bet he will in the future. One of the guys that helped to put my tent up said he was taking bets for when mine will collapse. Thanks for following. dorf dude...

Dorf Dude -

Does the room you built inside the flexible shed have any connection that could provide some support your shed? - In other words, are they independent of each other?

The tent and the inside structure do not touch. You could pick the tent straight up and the inside would stand free. I've been thinking about some sort of support but so far it's held up under a pretty extreme load. Baptism by fire. This tent can handle quite a bit. If it gets too bad I could always put a heater in between and melt the snow load. I need to work on the run off on the sides. Esp above the door. Thanks for following, dorf dude...

I finally got my shop door in . It's great. It has an electric motor inside so nice, easy and quiet. It took them all of 45 minutes to install. Cut the down legs to length, mount upper box and legs, hang the door inside the box, roll up and drop into the leg channels. Done. I don't think any normal garage door is as simple and insulated as this one. I am very pleased as you can tell. Here are a couple pics. dorf dude...

I've had the last couple days off and decided to get busy on the Cork and Bottle Cap wall. Man this is a lot of work. Silicone a cork and stick it on the wall. One at a time. I've tried running beads of silicone on the wall and then sticking them but I don't feel that the adhesion is as good. Here's a pic of where I'm at today. dorf dude...

Dorf Dude -

It looks like you are hunkering down for the inside finish work with the colder weather and shorter days.

It is a good finishing touch theme for for your pool room. What did you use to stick everything up and not slide down even though it is lightweight.

You might have a problem if you put in a keg installation and use traditional steins and not bottles and cans. I know you would not like to put something on the rails of the pool table.

Is that your four legged friend hiding under the pool table or just some materials or scraps?

Looking great as usual!

What is that blue labeled beer, Hacker-Pschorr? Do you still get Flensburger Pils in that style bottle with the rubber stopper?

Looking good.

I used Silicone to stick the corks up. Under the pool table was just a black garbage bag. I really don't intend to put a keg up there. I would probably end up drinking to much The beer is Mönchshof Lager. Flensberg is still with the flippy top. It is not really sold around here, it's a Pils and our area is more Helles. It is amazing how much beer styles change within just a 2 hour drive. Now it's time to get the Pool room cleaned up and ready for a New Years get together. Your all invited!! dorf dude...

I was online shopping and found this sink. I was blown away and had to have it for the upstairs bathroom. What do you think? Now I need to come up with a stand for it. It weighs more than I do! dorf dude...

Seems to me that sink is a perfect match for your house given what it's made from and the style. Great find.

And a big "well done" on that cork wall, absolutely unique!

Happy New Year Scott.

I have not updated lately but still getting lots of hits. I put a bar in the Pool room. I had wood left over from the staircase stringers and made good use of it. I wall mounted a 24" monitor that is hooked up to a laptop. We use it for the jukebox and watching online videos ect... It is really a nice area to sit and hang out. I picked up a few more bar stools at a good price. Next I will build a simple rack to put the stereo equipment in. Nothing fancy. I will have a turntable and even an 8 track. Now if I could find a good reel to reel. Here is a pic of the bar area so far. Instead of spending lots of time and money finishing the counter top I bought a plastic table cloth that looks like wood. It was wide enough that I cut it down the middle and actually got 2, so the cost of 1 was only 7 bucks! Great deal. dorf dude...

I like how you wrote "SHU" in the cork wall.
