I have planned on a new frame but have been lacking beams. I will use old massive ones like in the rest of the house. For now I will throw this one up and pump it out when I get the materials. That's why I needed the pump in the future. I also might put some sort of a water feature in and I can use it for that too. I will try and move everything except the mattress today in my little car. dorf dude...

Is it possible to roll the mattress up with the filler hole low down? Maybe that might get another 50 lbs of water out.

best of luck on your move. Lift with your legs, and not your back.

All the best!

I think it's too late to warn him now! Either he already knows that (of course he does) or he's in trouble!

Have a good one Shu!

The big move is complete. Now I have to get out of the apartment. Lot's of little junk to tighten up. The waterbed did not survive the move. I woke up on Sunday to drop, drop, drop. The pump was at the apartment. I hauled butt, returned and got it pumped out. The laminate floor was ok. I guess it is time for a new bed after all. No pictures. I have limited access to the net. I'm living in a disaster zone. dorf dude...

If Tim hadn't said anything...your bed might have survived! These things have a mind of their own you know.

Glad to hear that the worst is over.

Well, when you get your internet connection up to speed you can give us all the good pics.

Disaster zone or not, it must feel good to be in your new, old house.

I have gotten a few pic's. The first is the bedroom disaster area. 2nd is kitchen, 3rd is living room, 4th is my temporary supplimental heat source, catalytic propane. I called the heat dude again this morning and he said he would get the pellet going today. We'll see about that. My humidity level is going up so I hope he gets me online soon. In the background is my new front door. It was only 109 Euro, solid wood. I will mount it soon to help seal out the cold. More apartment work tonight. I give up the key on the 28th, time is running out. dorf dude

I know you will be happy to have the move behind you and all settled in. If you don't mind and you get the chance could we see your front door?

Pellet stove is online. The heating dude was amazed about this stove. It contains the heat in the hot water exchange for the most part. I ran it the whole night and it used 1 bag of pellets. Not bad considering it was warming 1000 liters of room temp water. I had 1 very small drip from a conector. Heat dude will fix it today. 2 more days to finish up the apartment and I will be back working on the house. Here is a great pic. dorf dude
