Hard times

Post by 12bar » Mon May 17, 2010 8:21 am

As mentioned before, I've started renovating my house, so I can't play guitar (only a bit acoustic) and can't connect to the Internet at home. The cable is cut :tears: , on the photos you can see the freshly mounted chimney (fuel oil is getting expensive, gas not available, it's a country house) and the place where my desktop and guitar were, now reinforced for the oven. The house was build first in 1936, renovated in 1993.

Usually an oven is more than 200 kg (or even more in lbs :lol: ), I want to be on the safe side. :whistle:
I always use gloves when working to protect my fingers, even if it sometimes looks stupid. Even small injuries on the fingertip can be a pain to play with...

I'll try to lay the phone and Internet cable this evening - below the wooden floor, a crawlspace with height of 40 cm. Crawling Kingsnake... :rofl:
