Another simple little project for the northern germany refuge. I used a wooden cigarillo box to make a cellphone holder for charging overnight. Unfortunately the white paint that I had still standing around was too thick to make a smooth surface while drying, so I had to sand it off a little and give it a layer of white spray paint. Unfortunately it didn’t turn out very pretty, but I think it’ll do its job.
Although legumes (e.g. beans, peas or lentils in all their varieties, forms and shapes) are available ready-to-use and cheap in any given supermarket, many people don’t know how to prepare them from their dried state. Yet, for an old freaky prepper like me 🙂 they are very useful: Their shelf life is a felt eternity, they’re nutritious and, well, occasionally they taste really good.
This Imgur post by User UndercoverTardis looks a little old-fashioned but it’s defintely interesting, fun and surely worth the read:
Everyone seems to repurpose old pallets, and I wanted to try that too. I couldn’t find a suitable couch for the location I wanted one for, I wanted it to be a cozy man-corner but also suitable for one person to spend a night on it. So I finally got hold of 2 well preserved pallets from a local transporting company and turned them into a couch. I’m still missing the cushions and a matress, but the basic work is done so far.
I got this as a christmas present and I had the opportunity/obligation to test it really thoroughly over the last 3-4 days.Amazon, and indeed for a reasonable price.

After the windows were upgraded, I wanted to change the old-fashioned door handles for newer and little discreeter ones. Changing door handles is also not a big deal – a little bit more complicated than the window handles, but not much of a challenge and not much work either. You’ll need some more tools – I strongly advise a power drill – and a little more time.
I’ve done some touch-ups in the northern germany refuge yesterday. One thing was changing the 20 year old window handles for new, lockable ones. It’s really easy, also for the inexperienced and here’s how:
