If need more question or circuious about the European code just ask us one of us will answer much as possible { I will being use the French code and Shu's area in Germany and he is pretty close to simauir to French code but in few diffrent way but not the UK that have complety diffrent code sections to dealt}

Merci.

It used to be 230 but now they boosted up to 240 volts to standardized the whole system.

But instering twist I am sure it may come back to your mind about the UK famous ring circuit if so they are not allowed on mainland European area.

The other place I know they still use the ring circuits is Hong Kong but with some restriction if I read it right.

Merci.
Marc

side note the UK do have 120 volts for jobsite for powertools only {if they require that they will follow that otherwise they will use standard 240 volts tools }

German House Rebuild


Today I planned on grouting my entry way but Matt's brother showed up to get going on the electric. I wired up my stove and set it temp in place. The top I left in the box until later. It is glass ceramic. It's brand new and out of warranty. I bought it 2 years ago. Matt brought my powder coated cabinet handles by. That black really sets things off. I found another use for the calibrated "Clamp Rock" I filled the gap between the laminate and tiles with a grey super glue. Very hard to squeeze out of the caulk gun but this stuff is tough as snot. I taped both sides and then went over it with the back side of a plastic spoon to push it in.. I pulled the tape while it was still wet and then locked the door. It is made by Sika. Great products. Getting a little closer. Here are a couple pics, dorf dude...

That is the only "Calibrated Clamp Rock" I have. It weighs 13.875 lbs. Just the right weight to hold things down. The rest are just plain rocks. dorf dude...

German House Rebuild


Thank you. Move day is this Sat the 23rd. I have a shower, toilet and sink in the bathroom. Stove is 1 day away. The house is holding 17C with outside temps hitting -2C, snow in the forcast. The pellet stove is not online yet. I'm still heating the neighbors house too which is my 4th wall but that is high on my priority list to get insulated. Move first then tighten up all the details. I won't have to drive back to an apartment anymore. I will be living in chaos for awhile but I will make the best of it until I can get settled. Time for a new start. dorf dude...

DD thought your place was in Siegaust, but in last post you said you are in 'chaos' =======8^) Everyone I know over here and understands 'building', especially what you have done, are at a loss for words, when they see where you have come to, after I turn them onto site! Wish I could have stayed and helped you more, especially to see this 'Grand Fini"! Take care of your health, and enjoy the 'fruits of your labors'!!

Getting closer Shu...did you get the stove functioning yet?

We still aren't getting the cold weather here yet, just a chill in the air in the AM. Loads of fog here this morning though.

I guess Chaos is TEMPORARILY near Grafenwoehr, Bavavaria, not far from the Czech Republic (and more beir) until a few days after the 23rd. It is good that Chaos will be somewhere else later and after Dorf dude is settled and has a stove.

German House Rebuild


I'm "All In" now. I broke down my water bed tonight. I borrowed a pump from the neighbor that was supposed to work. Not even close. A washmachine motor and pump. I had to buy a new one, I will need it in the future anyway. A water bed is actually pretty simple. Outside frame with a support underneath and a heater. My matteress is a total waveless which has a big piece of foam inside. The pump did pretty good getting what it could out but it still weighs about 100lbs. It will take a couple guys to move it. Here are a few pic's from tonights activities. dorf dude...

I always used a garden hose and siphoned the water out. Never used a pump.

I had to suck all the water I could out because it is a 100% wave less matteress. That means it has a really thick piece of foam inside that holds tons of water. Siphon would not get it drained this far. Plus my down stairs neighbors wouldn't have liked the rain shower from my bed on their balcony. I must still be a good neighbor even though I'm leaving. I pumped it into my bathtub. It will be set back up on Sat at the house. dd
