German House Rebuild


You like my curtains! You gotta use what you have on hand. Here is a pic of my kitchen lights, very bright and use only 36 watts total. My stove and sink are fully functional. I have the rough frame on the outside for the new door. I will leave the original door too. This is a temp setup to get me through the winter and stop the cold air from getting in. I cut open the waterbed so it would completely drain all the water from the baffles. I've also gotten alot of unpacking done. Starting to feel like a home. dorf dude...

Dorf dude -

Great looking ceiling and lighting treatment!!! It is a great contrast/compliment to the rough beams.

The water bed photo reminds me of my home here in Minnesota. - My wife drinks Chardonnay and buys it by the 3 or 5 liter box. In order to get the last drop, she removes the bag, keeps it in the refrigerator to keep it chilled and then squeezes it to get the last drop out (she is very, very frugal).

I also see you also enjoy a Hungry Jack pancake every once in a while.

Love that spray washer nozzle. I've only seen them in Commercial kitchens.
My house has the spray nozzle in the spout and it pulls out.

I haven't read your thread in a while but it looks like you've moved back into your house about the same time I did. I wish I had a functional kitchen though! Nice going. Love your overhead kitchen lighting!!

Thanks for your support! I received my new waterbed mattress on Friday!. I slept great this weekend. The temp outside door is in and sealed, what a big difference. I got the last 12 lights cut in last night. No more construction lighting downstairs. The halogen bulbs in the pic are going in the garbage. They would use a total of 600 watts, with the LED's I'm using 36. Next will be insulate my upstairs wall so I'm not heating the neighbor's house. One step at a time. dorf dude...

So you are going to change that door for a different one down the road, are you?

Nice difference on the power consumption on those lights. At least the halogens were heating the house for you as well!!

I've got to find some LED's to fit the light that just went in my stairwell. The six in that fixture chew up 360 watts...can't do that on solar power!

Do you still have things to do in the kitchen? Or is that all finished now?

I'm with everyone else...love those lights!

Thanks DD for the pictures, I just can't get enough looking at the antique beams and ceiling, just beautiful, it for sure has that "wow factor" for me.

One of the antique homes my crew and I restored was built in 1824 and all the joist on the down stairs was full trees with just the top flattened off, I thought that was pretty cool.

I got to check into the LED lights, that is a lot of difference.

I took me a while but I finally finished reading the whole thread (no skipping ahead either)!

Rather than carrying on and on about how blown away I am by your confidence in taking on this project in the first place, how fantastic your window masonry is, how much I love, love, love your use of the old timbers and rough planks, I'll just summarise: WOW!!!

Youíve also done a fantastic job writing and illustrating this thread. I especially loved the little details about the local people and goings on you add about your neighbours, the Stadtfest, the whatchamacallit tree for blessing new buildings, etc. (Iím glad you bowed to the demands of other readers and threw in a few details about yourself too - makes the story that much more engaging. )

Between this and Keithís Gulf Island thread, you two have the DIY virtual tourism market all wrapped up!

Tschau,
Julia
