Just hold on to them for now. Collect more. "Beer is cheaper than gas. Drink don't drive!" They aren't needed for a while. Thanks for the hard work. BTW, Who lives in RI 02895? Please identify yourself. dorf dude...

Now that I have moved out of the apartment, no pets allowed, I get my dog on the weekends along with my boys. He has found that the pellet stove is the best place to be. He just sleeps all the time. dorf dude...

German House Rebuild


Winter is really setting in now. The house was getting a little chilly so I turned up the thermostat. It was even colder inside this morning?? I have 2 thermostats, one in the entry and one on the floor heat loop. I turned up the floor heat loop and the room temp. That was wrong. The floor heat loop appears to work backwards. It will keep pumping until the water temp drops to the set temp. The room thermostat tells it to keep pumping until the temp rises to set temp. Is this correct? The pellet stove is really ripping now that I turned down the floor heat loop. Nobody explained this to me when it was set up. There is actually a 3rd thermostat built into the pellet stove to regulate how hot the internal water temp gets but that is pretty much automatic. In the pic is the floor heat thermostat. dorf dude...

I worked on my wall again. I've included a pic of the hidden clips that hold the boards in the groove. I started with the tongue and profiled it with the post. Not the greatest work from me, yes there is a slight gap at the top. The post tapers. I just didn't feel like making it perfect. I used the clips all the way to the next to last board at the wall. I measured the gap and then ripped the board with a 25 degree angle to allow fitting it in the groove of the last board. The angle cut lets you slip it in against the wall. It has enough tension that I will just let it sit there, no nails or anything. Here are a couple pics, dorf dude...

Well by the time you will need them I will have a ton... most likely Nati Bo.. because its the best beer around :x the good thing though about this beer is that underneath the bottle cap there are little image games that you can play like... a picture of a D and a picture of a Fence.... so... Defense. .. you know... well lol I hope you like them I cant wait to contribute to a project that is going on here its going to be really cool.

My new wall is making thermal adjustments. I will give it a couple days to settle in but then some Gorilla Glue might be in order. I don't want to hear the creaking over the next years. dorf dude...
