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...

Being the owner of a Pellet Stove leaves you with 2 options. Fix it yourself or pay a company. I refuse to pay if I can. Last night my stove quit working. After troubleshooting I had no pellets dropping into the burn chamber. The stove was trying to drop pellets but nothing getting delivered. I gutted the stove to find out the main shaft had sheared off. I got together with my buddy Matt and came up with a permanent fix. He cut a key way in the main shaft with his mill, 5mm. This should be the last time I have to deal with it. Working good so far.

Very handy to have such a good friend around when you need him!

Very nice to have the tools and knowledge on hand! Pellet stoves are not for normal people. Much work involved. I take it and DIY on. I'm "Green" as I can be but you must put in some work to keep it up. Pellet stoves don't just keep working all the time. Better off with a wood stove if you can't fix things. Thanks for following. More to come.

I have a 2nd tier buddy with access to a HAAS machine and a full shop. Needless to say, he is on the Christmas card list!!

We won't have that problem in the US as our President and EPA saw fit to ban most of the older units.

Time for an update. I made a big push on the Mud Room. Took a couple days vacation. First step, frame and level the old wall. 2nd, break up and set a new threshold on the door. I spiked it into the sandstone door frame, not going to move. 3rd, pour a self leveling floor. This should bring you up to speed.. dorf dude...
