German House Rebuild


Is that some sort of foam block you used for the base in front of the shower?

German House Rebuild


The base is made of a puffed up cement type stuff. We made great progress today. The bedroom is pretty much painted. Mick decided he was a 2 roller gun slinger. Isaac helped too. Steve had to take off before I got his pic. Campbell set the door frames. I just sat back and drank beer. I did get stung by a bee on my tongue while drinking a beer. I'm not allergic so it lasted about 2 hours and back to normal. That sucked. Things are moving along!! dorf dude...

I love the step around the shower and how the tile looks. Great idea!

With the paint and the door frames, it's really taking on a finished look.

Have you been getting very many beer bottle caps?

So do you have to pay Mick double wages because he works twice as fast now?

Wasp stings are par for the course in Germany. You better get yourself a Bier Deckel!

Campbell just had to hang the bathroom door today. Can't say I don't blame him. It absolutely looks fantastic. I had Matt powder coat the handles black. That really sets things off. The handles were really cheap and eventually I will replace them as I can afford it. The threshold really lined up and looks great. I trimmed out the bedroom paint and spot touched up. Really moving along now. dorf dude...

Jim, I know where every goof up is. There are many. The trick is to hide them really well. I have a big one with the shower base and have not figured it out yet. I might post pic's for input. dorf dude...

OK, fill us in.

First thing I looked for was to see if the water would drain out OK. That looks to be all right. Other than that I don't know, it all looks so good.

That is what makes a great artisan, being able to turn his "over runs" into part of the project to look intentional. You have incorporated your "over runs" very well, if there are any.
