My Own Marine-Maple-Tree

This is the maple tree that’s growing in the light well in front of my shop window. I guess it grew from a flying seed that landed in the well about 3 years ago. It was never watered (besides the little rain the well receives) nor ever been cared for in any way, nonetheless it has grown greatly.

A real marine maple tree – I’ll take it out this fall and plant it in the garden.


Mounting Internal Doors

So, finally, a friendly professional person installed the door to the shop for me. I have observed this work many times, but I don’t dare to do it on my own. It requires absolute accuracy, precision and, last but not least, knowledge about what you’re doing.

First, one half of the doorframe is glued and screwed together and inserted into the door-hole. After levelling everything carefully with a spirit level, it is fixed in the correct position with several wedges and the hollows are filled with construction foam.

To ensure the correct position of every part of the frame, the whole construction is fixed with tension rods until the foam has cured and hardened. Next, the other half of the Frame will be installed (foam, glue and screws) and the door is ready.

Garden…

I don’t know why, but I just love this sunny casual snapshot of the mossy, overgrown and “natural” garden in the northern germany refuge.


War Zone BBQ

The terrace still looks devastated like after a friggin’ grenade impact… Nonetheless we had a relaxed and very pleasant spontaneous grilling event with great company yesterday evening. Even my wive’s old football grill finally came into operation again.


How To: Miter Joints for Baseboards

We got wooden flooring in the northern germany refuge recently, and I had to install the baseboards (the mouldings covering the joint of the walls and the adjoining floor) over the last days. Since it’s an older house and not every corner is a perfect ninety-degree-angle, I had to rely on some measuring and precise cutting to make the baseboard joints nice and flush.


Cat Approved

Even the Lady of the House approves of the pallet couch! Yeah!


Juri on the Road

My “good boi” at the local gas station at the northern germany refuge. Running smoothly and reliably, I like him more than ever.


Demolition Man!!!

I started tearing down the old and worn brick and stone grill in the northern germany refuge today. I didn’t expect it to be that sturdy – never judge a book by it’s cover! Whoever built this monster, he really knew what he was doing!


Fencing

We also started fencing the property these days. Slowly but surely everything is coming together…


I’ll just leave this here. I can’t help it…

One ugly-looking, super-happy good boi!
