German House Rebuild


I must be out of my apartment on the 28th. I'm not getting any work done at the house all week. I'm really under the weather on antibiotics and not feeling any better. Back to the doctor tomorrow for stronger meds! I need to shake this crud. I am getting some things at the apartment taken care of since I'm stuck here. dd...

Best of luck in you recovery.

We all will miss the progress reports, but as long as you can think and conceptualize, there will be even better results.

That must be about the last thing you need right now.

Could it be that you have been pushing yourself too hard? Maybe 24 hours rest will do you some good.

Like I'm the best guy to give you that advice!

Anyway, thanks for letting us know...I'm sure we will all have our fingers crossed for you.

At least you have 3 weeks to get things sorted out at the apartment...but don't we know how fast that goes by when you're busy!

Billy, almost two years since you and Shu, 'helped' me to see Weiden! Hope you are well, 'avoiding accidents on the autobahn', in any big car like a 'beamer', and are still enjoying life! Cheers mate

German House Rebuild


I went back to the doctor today. I told him I want to kick the sh!t out of this sickness. He bumped me up to 1000mg x3 a day. I was on 250mg x2. He asked if I want another sick slip for next week, I declined. Enough about that. After the doctor I dropped another load at the house and assembled 3 cabinets. I will move the complete kitchen in the back of my little car ! I love Ikea kitchens. Just don't glue the dowels. I plan on a whole day tomorrow at the house with big progress pic's I hope. Today I was inspected again by the nice neighbor. He just couldn't understand how I was heating the house. I walked him through it and he shook his head and said He'd never seen anything like it. He was amazed at how simple it was and how well it works. Very few components to fail and there is a backup if one source does fail. Here are a couple of pics of the kitchen starting to go together. dorf dude...

Excellent news! Let's hope you get better PDQ.

Funny how we both seem to be doing the same things from time to time...I'm doing a bit more on my kitchen cabinets today. I just don't have the luxury of having Ikea stuff which goes together in a flash.

Looking forward to your weekend progress.

Must be a damn good feeling to see things racing ahead now as they are.

German House Rebuild


A bomb has gone off in my apartment. I need more boxes to put things in. I have gotten all the cabinet doors off. They just clip on! To remove the hinges just lift 1 toggle. Handles are off with 2 screws. They now will pack in the back of my car and not scratch each other. About 1 minute per door. Have I mentioned how nice Ikea kitchens are. You do have them in Canada don't you? I know in the US. Almost bed time, dorf dude...

Ikea cabinets are simple. That's what I used for the desk and wall cabinets in my home-office. They go together well and look nice enough. I would be worried about dinging/chipping the particle board from having to move them around though. Do you do anything special to protect them?

I remove the sharp metal posts that the cog locks on and then only put flat sides together. For the drawer panels I put the slide sides together. A little extra disassembly makes for better transport. Not hard to put back together. Much better than trying to transport assembled. They wouldn't fit in my car! dorf dude...

Ikea is definitely here. They have a huge store over in Richmond, a suburb of Vancouver.

Only trouble is they don't seem to have curved cupboards for some reason...
