German House Rebuild


Well now, I've been on this forum for 6 months; and I finally finished reading up on this thread. I'm truly amazed at the work you've gotten done. Now I'm a little bummed that your progress won't happen as fast as I click the "next page" button, but I'm looking forward to seeing your progress. It's really interesting seeing the differences in construction method. Your place makes my house look like a barn.

Do you still need bottle caps? My wife and I are headed to Gatlinburg, TN next week. I'll try and track some down from the Smokey Mountain Brewery. And some from the Sweetwater Brewing Co. right here in Atlanta. My wife and I will be very bummed that we have to drink all of that beer for your cause...

I know that makes you happy being in your home but getting settled will make you even more happy. We understand how it is to get settled in, we will be here when you get ready to post more.

Good show Shu! Must feel good to be living in the new pad.

I'm sure you'll get the kitchen all sorted out in jig time. We'll be looking forward to hearing from you again once things settle down.

German House Rebuild


It was a busy weekend. I didn't get as far as I was hoping but progress just the same. My window sill was too high so I knocked it out and set a new one. Cabinets are leveled up and in position. I will have to get a couple more to fill in under the window. The sink doesn't work yet. I got the wrong adapters for the faucet and the stores don't open until Tuesday. Another holiday. I have a butterfly in the house. I take that as a good sign. Here are a couple pics, dorf dude...

DD, are you going to let the counter top go into the window and use it as part of your window sill?

You are coming along nicely, but I am sure you wish it would be faster. It all looks great DD.

Yes, the countertop will extend into the window. I'm using OSB for now and then when I find something just right then I will go over the top of it. I'm leaning towards tile at the moment but that could change. dorf dude...

The best part is that lovely curtain over the window.
