A little too much? How about a lot too much.
The frizz she was born with, the only one in the litter like that. 10 1/2 years old now.

German House Rebuild


I'm supposed to pick up the wood for my stairs this Sat. I never finished grouting my tile floor so I got going on that again this evening. My motivation factor is low on this project but it has to get done before I can start on the stairs. I will finish it tomorrow. It sure dries fast with the floor being so warm. Grouting sucks. dorf dude...

Not the grouting so much as the cleanup that really sucks IMO.

German House Rebuild


Ok, I've been at it the last few days. The tile floor is grouted now. Steve came today and gave me a hand picking up the wood for the stairs. This thing is massive. I had a couple visitors and they couldn't believe how thick the steps are going to be. I bought some art objects, Whale's. I think they go great with the rock window sills. I'm not a whale nut but they fit in. What say you? We have been slammed by winter 13" of snow and temps down to 5F. My house is staying warm. I still need to insulate on the neighbors wall. That should really help. Here are a couple pic's. dorf dude

The whales are terrific. Almost reminds me of the whale watching over at Tofino in the spring.

Wow, those are some thick treads, are you going to mortise them in and have an open tread?

I agree with Coco, the whales are sharp.

Scott -

Everything looks good as expected. Just a check up on you communications -

How is the satellite dish and selector working?

You mentioned the poor/slow DSL connection? Is it just a little slow or is there a reliability issue? - The photos posted look good for going through a web site.

I could post some photos of my 2 - 15# black cats, but they are boring and always have their eyes closed like they are sleeping.

The unique bottle caps are coming. Do you want the bottles with the labels later?

The other Schu - Dick

I would like the bottles full with labels and caps! Actually just caps is fine. Once I get the stairs in then working upstairs will be easy. I've been putting off things up there because of access. My DSL is solid but slow. It takes a little while to upload pic's but not terrible. The stair treads are thick, 2". I guess I over engineered it. I will close them off. I plan on a hobby work bench underneath so I don't want stuff falling down on my projects. I'm undecided on what type of railing to use. Once it's in then I will decide. It's got to be a little different of course. Thanks for following, dorf dude...

DD, I think your stairs will fit right in with the thick treads, it is going to look sharp that is for sure.

DD, why not look around the woods in your area, and use some limbs of trees or parts of trees themselves, to make a unique railing! Buddy of mine who lives up in the Chilcotin, built a 3000 Sq Ft log home, on two floors, and never used nails, and had an amazing two floor stair rail made out of skinny 'logs', and it looked awesome,..he even used treads like you are building. If you want pixs, I can email him, and after some time, he would prolly send you some pixs!
Cheers
