You wouldn't really want that unruly mob in your house, would you?

Have a good trip...see you in a month.

Dorf Dude -

It is going to be a long and lonely month of August without you progress and input.

I hope you can easily get on line and post some ideas that you may get on your trip to see how they will work into your rebuilding/creation. I am sur you will get some constructive opinions, although they are probably based on U.S. construction and design concepts.

I would imagine he will come up with some unique solutions for his rebuild.

I assume he is out of range in WA or just taking it easy and catching a fish or two (not likely).

I miss the daily reports on the progress and plans (mental - not on paper).

German House Rebuild


Greetings from HOT Eastern WA!. When I got home I found the picnic table my dad built over 40 years ago in rough shape. The first pic with my yougest son and Molly was taken 4 years ago, 2006. The table has sat in the weather it's whole life. It is made of Redwood and it is still really solid. I enlisted the help of my oldest son to start stripping it down. I hope to give it another 40 years service. You know I can't go places without something to do. It is all stripped and stained with deck stain now. It has a few days in the sun to dry before I put it back together. Oil based stains dry slow. The last pic is a trivia question. Do you know which TV series the resturant was in? They have great pie. dorf dude...

Dorf Dude -

Glad to see you are alive and helping by doing your own thing along with the boys. What kind of oil are you planning to use on the table?

I tried to figure out where you are, but the Eastern WA threw me unless you were in the real far eastern Washington around Coulee because of the water in the background.

The diner is easy because I had pie there since it is in North Bend, just off I90. I traveled I90 once to see the only stop light on an interstate freeway. I can't identify the series, but I saw it on the Travel channel on others. I did not have the famous cherry pie, but had my personal favorite - warm apple pie with a slice of cheddar cheese on top. As you said, the pies are great.

My friend from Anacotes, WA referred to the diner's location as eastern Washington since it was just over the "ridge" to a local, but always thought of Spokane and that area as eastern Washington.

Shu, No need to worry about water for the new plants out front, it’s been raining since you flew. Flooding on the Czech Polish German border area again. Never fear though your Hooch is built way to well for a big down pour to upset anything. And now..... even more rain is on the way for days to come! Germany liquid Sun Shine, save on those car washes.

Just taking a look at that pic Shu...and it seems odd that with such an incredibly dry area that there is a big waterfall right in the middle of it all!

Here is a pic of Steamboat Rock, over 800 vertical feet of rock face. It is surrounded with water. You can't see it in this pic but the lake, Banks Lake is 25 miles long and is used to hold irrigation water. This area is desert brought to life by the Grand Coulee Dam. I will get back to that picnic table this weekend. Should be dry by now. dorf dude...

I would tell you to relax and take in the sights on your vacation but I suppose I am the same way, so I understand the need to 'tinker'.
I believe the TV series was "Twin Peaks and the place was famous for cherry pie and "Damn fine cup o' coffee!".

Good to know you are having a good time but I think I speak for everyone when I ask you to hurry home and finish that house...I personally miss the posts and check everyday...

Here is a shot of Banks Lake. Up in the far right corner is Steam Boat Rock. It is hard to imagine the scale of things here. It must be about 6 miles across at the widest. The temps are heading above 100 again. Our trip here is winding down, fly out on Thursday. dorf dude...
