German House Rebuild


DD for sure Canadian BC Red Cedar,..I shoved some into the surf this morning...should be there..oh.. 2027! But heh, I bought a lotto ticket for you..18 million prize..prolly be won in Ontario or PQ..but the thought should at least warm your 'toes'"! To quote: shakespeare, (who I still think was Roger Bacons "valet"), "the evil that men do lives after them
The good is oft interred with their bones"!
Cheers

German House Rebuild


Sorry scoggy but I didn't have any cedar. Where to start? I finished tiles on the wall around the door. I stuccoed the tiled wall, I will paint it white. I finished out the window frame, I probably will paint that white too. It looks fantastic. The stones will be exposed. I mounted another light, they are Compact Floresent in a halogen shape. After all that I was pretty much done. Check out my hands. Even more tomorrow. I'm on fire and can't stop, time to move! Stay tuned. dorf dude...

OK Shu, enough is enough...you're making the rest of us look like a bunch of lazy so-and-so's!

Everything is looking exceptionally good now I must say.

Ever thought of using gloves?

Dude, your hand looks like sh**, but the rest of it's looking great!! Hope you're downing a beer or two to celebrate your progress.

Danf, I did have a couple beers. I broke out the real good stuff. My private stash. I found out about this beer in March when I was deployed for 3 weeks. Man is it good. I think I will get a keg of it for my house party!

I stuccoed the wall today. It came out cool as hell. It has a very "Organic" feel to it. It isn't flat but flows. It will be almost white when it dries. It will be the same color and the mortar between the stones. I couldn't get a pic from another angle because the sun was too bright in the window. After doing this I think I will not use sheetrock in the living room and kitchen. I will stucco it. If I had 1 person mixing and me spreading it would go quick. Here are some pic's. I have another suprise up my sleeve in the future. Stay tuned, dorf dude...

I've visited Regensburg a couple times, right next door to Aldersberg. Beautiful area.

After being back stateside for a couple years now, I'd settle for almost ANY German (or European) beer right now. Bitte ein Bit??

That's beautiful!! You did a great job on it. It'll look awesome in the kitchen and living room too. Much better than sheetrock.

Is it washable? I'm thinking about the wall in the kitchen behind the stove, where food and grease will splatter and stain it.

It is not washable as is. I will paint it then it should be depending on the paint of course.

Thanks in advance.
