I made another squirrel feeder for the nothern germany garden. The little guys must be darn hungry these days so I wanted to help them out a little.
I finallly did the necessary touch ups on the garden shed in the northern germany refuge. To be honest, it is still not pretty and you cannot see so much of a difference, but as so often, it was the little things that required attention:
1. Replaced the broken roof tiles
2. Reinforced the wooden beams where necessary
3. Added an additional side wall for added space and stability of the projection portion of the roof
4. Fixed the front roof-cover
Pheew… Maybe I’ll give it a paint job in spring next year.
Still a lot to do but slowly everything is coming together. I love it so much.
The “coal in a flowerpot”-idea really didn’t work at all, so here’s what what I came up with instead last weekend:
I tried it with a 3-cm-vermiculite board from the hardware store and some heat-proof cement. Here’s the outcome – it still has to cure a little (according to the package) and I’m curious how it’ll work out. (See the other parts of the process if you like: Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV)
I finally finished the smoker for the northern germany refuge that I was longing for for so long! It’s design is loosely based on the “munich smoker” at home (see series parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and in action), but with a few modifications, adjustments and additions. But first, some images:
It was really not a pretty sight when you came home and the first thing you saw were three dirty trashcans in front of the house. So we grabbed all the remaining pallets from the garden and turned them into a screen to cover the trash. It’s a simple construction made from five regular euro pallets (in diffenerent states of decay 🙂 ) screwed together with simple metal brackets.
It’s not completely done yet, since we plan to additionally cover it with a wicker fence from the hardware store, but it is already an improvement.

I’m (somewhat) social too!
