German House Rebuild


Time for some updates. 4 pallets of pellets are here. I hope there enough. Should get me till March at least. I picked up a wood stove for the Shent. I now have dual heat sources, wood and pellets. This little guy is rated at 10kw and really kicks butt. I'm impressed. My trailer is 18 years old and the bed has been failing. After much soul searching I decided to just throw a 18mm OSB bed on top of the old one. I've sealed the heck out of it. I promise to not leave it out in the weather any more. Mia is happy and has claimed it as "Her's" Now I have to try and get inspection on it. Suspension bushings are showing their age. Fingers crossed. Mustang motor is in Country. Should be about a week and it will be here. That will be a Winter project. Here are a few pics of things. dorf dude

Any chance you can show us a pic or two of the other side of that heater setup you have in the last pic above?

I must have missed it if you posted it earlier.

Probably not a partner, but a supervisor that is always around to observe.

Is that a "vanity license plate on the car that is SHU62? I did not know that vanity plates were that common in Germany.

Great observation Dick. Yes it is a Vanity plate of sorts. The first 2 letters must be "AS" because I live in the Amberg - Sulzbach county. I could choose the rest if it was available. I chose HU62. That gives me A SHU 62. The year I was born. You sir are one of a very select few that has caught that.. As for me heating in the Shent. 2 stoves, 2 exhaust pipes. I cut the round stones and the pipes exit inside. Nothing fancy. The stones are camouflage. These stoves are not registered. They are very strict here. I'm a Rebel! I'll get a better pick after work today. dorf dude...
