German House Rebuild


I just read this whole thread, 585 posts worth, and I didn't skim it. Great stuff. It's an inspiration to me and my project, I've been out of my house for 7 months with no prospect of return in the near future.

I have also been to Cesky Krumlov, in 2004. Nice place to visit. Great beer. I took a zillion pictures. In the summertime they rent kayaks to go cruising down the local river. Was featured prominently in the movie "Hostel".

The Soviet era apartments ringing the outside of the city are a blight, but they are interesting to see throughout the old Eastern block countries nonetheless. However, it seems to be the more rural areas that have really suffered...shuttered up factories and the like, and backwoods people with nothing to do. Makes the worst of Appalachia seem like a downright suburban neighborhood. I locked the doors on the van when we got lost once.

Not sure how far Passau is from where you live but I got sick of my company near there (relatives), and I told them to drop me at the next available train station which happened to be Passau. I then hopped the first train out of town which was to Salzburg. After a few days there, I was then off to Munich where I drank about 8 liters of bier one day.

Ah Germany. Love to visit at any rate, not sure if I could deal living there, I like to go to the store on Sundays.

Oh and I am not exactly sure how they can call Budweiser the "Great American Lager", when it is clear that it was stolen from the Czechs.

How long did it take you to read the whole thing? I don't mind the stores being closed on Sunday, just have to plan ahead. 8 liters of beer, thats 16 bottles, I would be out around 10. You can google map Seugast to see its relation to Passau, not too far away. You a completely right about Budwieser, the Czeks had it way before America was even a nation. They even tried to sue over the name but lost. If you ever get back over your welcome to stop by.

I called the heating guy and they will begin on Tues. Yea! I should be heating in about a week if all goes well. Then I can continue. dorf dude...

Yup, and the beer looks good, too.

Congrats on soon getting the heating started. A critical milestone for you, and the promise of continued progress for the rest of us to enjoy tracking!

Keep up the great job.

Hi Shu...I'm genuinely happy to hear that you will have HEAT soon! I know it was a real milestone when we got the first woodstove in the house here, and the second woodstove was icing on the cake. Makes life completely bearable even if it is blowing like stink and freezing cold outside.

took me about 4 hours to read the whole thing. Time well spent, more entertaining than a book.

Good luck on getting your heat going, that's what I need at my house too. It was 44F in the house today when I showed up to work. You northerners may laugh but that's cold down here in Texas.
