German House Rebuild


I think 'cocobolo' thought 'brons2' meant 44 degrees Centigrade...??? And yeah, at that temp., who wouldn't go buck if they could? Enough of that. Glad to hear you're finally getting some heat. I'll bet you're one happy camper. Blessings.

German House Rebuild


The heating guys reached a point that they had to stop and wait for me to tile more on the wall. They have to mount some things. I used tie wraps for my spacers between tiles. The wall is not flat so it is a little rough but I really don't care. It felt good to be back at it, even in the cold. We are having a slight thaw and the snow on my roof is sliding off. Damn near took me out with a massive slab, sloosh....BOOM! I knew that I should have put some sort of a snow fence up. I was told by the "experts" that my roof was too flat to need one. Just another thing to add to the "To Do List". Here are a few pic's, dorf dude...

There will be a large Mud Room. It is going to be where there is no insulation on the outside wall. I will make some sort of snow restraint on the roof by next year. If only some hooks and logs, something. Stay tuned, dorf dude...

I got a call from the heating dude today. He said that the tiles had not set because it was too cold. He set up a tarp and an electric heater to get things curing. It's a catch 22, I need heat to get heat! I still have to grout before he can set things but I could do it after if it comes to that. I wish winter would go away. Things are ramping up at work so it looks like I won't have much time to work on the house. I will do what I can as I get the chance. dorf dude...

WOW!! 50,000 Hits . I must thank all of you around the world for following along the last 2 years. I am humbled and maybe motivated to get back at it so you have more progress to follow. Winter and Troop Training is making it hard right now. More snow coming down at the moment. Heat Dude said he was going to do some work today getting my water lines hooked up. I got the tiles grouted last night. I will try and get over tomorrow and snap a couple pics. Again thanks for following everyone, dorf dude... Oh, I did take a poke at a web page, very very basic. I'm completely new at this. I linked back to this thread. Much easier than retelling everything. www.dorfdude.de

The heating dude got further yesterday. It is looking good. He will begin again next week. It seems it might be a little late though. I will be going away for three weeks begining in March. It should begin to get warmer by then. Here are a couple pics, dorf dude...

It is an Air Pressure Regulator, expansion tank, for the heating system. There is actually one more to go in with the solar. My wall is going to be full. You are welcome to stop by. I always have room. I just hope I'm in by then. Work is getting really busy. Thanks for following, dorf dude...

I posted on "www.finehomebuilding.com." They have great information but big bank accounts and no DIY. Kind of a snob area I would guess. I won't get 51,000 hits from their site, that's for sure. I want to thank you all for following along the last 2 years. dorf dude...
