Great tip thanks. Always looking for tools of destruction. This is as far as I've goten so far and that's mostly just loking at the pictures.

I got the 2nd window dressed up tonight. Plumber dudes did their thing and I now have kitchen water. The hot side isn't active yet but that's ok. I need to finish spray foaming it and then close it up. Looking forward to a busy weekend. dorf dude...

German House Rebuild


1 window left, the bedroom. I will have Sat and Sun this weekend to work on the house. I'm working out a plan of attack in my head. I must get all the stucco finished and the slab for my mud room done before I fly on the 29th of July, that's 2 weeks. Then it will have 3 weeks to dry while I'm gone. Problem with that is I have a big pile of rubble sitting right where the slab will go. I'm trying to recruit some help for Sat morning. People don't get very excited when you tell them they will be moving a dirt pile. I have to up the ante beyond just free beer! dorf dude...

German House Rebuild


I got an early start today. Cedric and Greg showed up and loaded up my rubble pile and hauled it away too! Thanks guys. Isaac then showed up and worked on my dirt pile and got it gone, Thanks! During this time I was working on the kitchen wall. It is looking good. I still have some more to do but a great start today. In the pics is the wall, the center where the water pipes are is tile glue with mesh. the rest is stucco. The rubble pile that isn't there and my outside faucet, it needs a trim ring in the future. I now have outside water. I'm back at the wall again tomorrow. dorf dude...

It's nice that you have such good friends who help out.

What kind of spigot is that? I don't see a handle to turn it off/on.

There is a twist handle like normal. The angle makes it hard to see. Solid brass. dorf dude...

Did they find the old coins you had in the dirt pile?

Walls are looking good, especially the outside one.

November 1st eh? OK, we're going to hold you to it. I only wish I could say the same!

My niece has just started working for a small local brewery here, so I'm going to see if she can swipe some caps from work and send them over to me.

I have a gal at the Crow and Gate, an English style pub here, saving some caps for you as well.

How much time do we have to get them over to you?
