Right...I see now why it will cut nails.

If the teeth are vertical, or even tipped back a little, the blade will indeed cut through nails.

Now if only the sawmill blades would cut through steel as well...

I got the cross beams in. I used the circular to make the main deep cuts and then the hand saw to finish up. The Multi Master kicked butt again! I ran a BF screw from the beam on top of the wall into the cross one, thats whats holding it up now. I will put a support post under it next. Things are moving along. dorf dude...

I wish they could talk and tell me how old they really are. I'm recycling recycled beams. They are still wet in the pics. I was looking into the history of the 30 years war. My village was destroyed during that time by the Sweeds in the 1630's. I would like to know more history. dorf dude...

I was lurking on ebay today and found a wood stove. Better to buy off season. I won it for 489 delivered! It has the latest certs and an external fresh air intake. What a snag I just saved about a 1000! Great day, dorf dude...

...and here we thought you were out of money...sheeesh!

Nice stove. Do you know how many square feet it will heat? Looks like it is fairly large, so I would expect maybe even the whole house? Yes...no?

I have cashed in some loosing stocks at about 40% less than I bought them for, I need cash and don't have time to wait. I need a home to live in now. The wood stove is a backup. I just have too much wood to not make use of it. It is not going to be tied into my hot water tank but just hot air and then a ceiling fan blowing the heat around. It really was a great snag today. I felt the force again and went shopping. Worked out perfect! dorf dude...

I got the ceiling boards cut to length and just resting in place. The big center beam is not straight, it has a slight twist and is going high towards the wall. This has complicated things. I should have it worked out by tomorrow. It didn't help that I woke up with some sort of stomach virus this morning. Miserable day.. dorf dude...

It is rated at 6kw and yes it has a rather large burning chamber. With this house insulated as it is, it should heat it just fine with a ceiling fan. It is only a supplement for the main system. I have so much junk wood that it only makes sense to add a wood burner. Also, wood is very plentiful around here, prices are cheap. dorf dude...

German House Rebuild


I got tired of working with wood so I switched to stone. I will get back to the beam mess later. Today I got 1 1/2 windows dressed. Just 1/2 to go but my arm was dead and my nose full of dust. I tried some pics with the flash but they all got washed out. This is the only one that really shows how it looks. It is really going to be something. The stones with the outline will be seen with grout in between then the stucco will finish the wall. Like in the bathroom. Well worth the effort since I have to look at it the rest of my life. Stay tuned, dorf dude...

Shu...I think the reason this pic isn't coming out too well is because you have a very bright area (window) in the center of the pic, surrounded by all dark. If you put a piece of paper over the outside of the window to kill some of the light, it should work better.

Dorf due -

Did you texture the surface of the stone or did they happen to be that way?

In either case, the end result is great assuming I understand your design that is floating around in your mind and not on paper. - Great effect.

I have pic's where the flash went off but it just looks flat. You can't see the texture. I dressed up the stones with a needle scaler. You can make out area that will be left exposed and then stucco will cover the rest, like dick said floating effect. Campbell came over tonight is was completely blown away. This is going to be one awsome window and no bricks in it either! This goes back a long time ago. Just a piece of wood and some roofing shingles added in for some filler, I will hide those. Here is the same pic with flash. dorf dude...
