Photovoltaic System (Photovoltaik Anlage)

Hubby and I decided to have a Photovoltaic System in our roof.

At first, I was just scared that it will give us problems instead of making us feeling secured. House building was indeed full of stress, specially in terms of things that are not happening how you want it. We already encountered issues with our plumbing and heating systems. It made our house building longer than expected.

Getting back to the Photovoltaic System, hubby and I were already at the building site early in the morning. First came the roofers. They brought high ladders and I can hear only bang klang and sounds of screwing things on our roof. That made me frown. I said to myself... "oh oh here comes the problem". It took them an our and a half to install the clip to hold the Photovoltaic Modules. Short before 12 noon, the Photovoltaic Modules and materials arrived. The whole installation was finished at 3 PM. Then the electrician came to finish the job.

For the finish view, here's some pics...

One Year Anniversary of our House! (Unser Haus ist ein Jahr Alt)

Same day last year when the first wall of our dream house was built. It took the workers few days to finish it.

It was the same day last year when we felt so proud to say that we are building our family dream house.



It is already one year... and we are still building it. We are even not near to finishing it. We still have a lot of things to accomplish, since we decided to do everything from the inside. For the record, the most credit goes to my superman husband who does the most building works in our house. On the other hand, his dad and I are always here for him to help. 

We wish, that before the year ends, we will already have our floor screed.

This is the update of our house from the outside, after a year.

Our Bathtub was Delivered! (Unser Badewanne ist da!)

I was excited to receive the call of the courier. They said, our bathtub will be delivered in our house (building site) in 10 minutes. Good that hubby, hubby's dad  and I were at the building site (working). It was almost 12 noon.

Hubby and his dad carried it inside and temporarily set it at the kitchen area. 

Update Update

It has been awhile since the last update on this blog.

We are now on the Autumn season and the weather is not so good. That means, flu is just around the corner =(

These are the updates for the last two weeks...

Hubby's Dad finished the case of one of our ventilation pipe, located in our pantry.




Finally, the last wood-based panel in our kitchen was installed. It took awhile because of the electric cables that needed to be fix on that wall.

 

I was able to install the last vapor retarder in our kitchen ceiling. On the first picture below, it still needs to be finalized and taped with Eurasol.





First batch of the ceiling substructure in our kitchen.


Ceiling substructure is now installed.


Hubby installed the drywall.


Hubby installed the last piece of the drywall in our kitchen. At last, our living, dinning, kitchen and pantry's wall were all finished.



Hubby installed the wood-based panels in our Guest WC. It was not that easy since it needed to perfectly fit on those plumbing pipes.

Filling-in and Smoothing the Plasterboard (Verspachteln und Schleifen die Gipskartonplatten )

After finishing the application of the penetrating primer in our pantry this morning, I then started smoothing some walls in our groundfloor. When hubby's dad arrived, he continued installing the plasterboard in our chimney walls and I worked on filling-in the plasterboards in our living, dinning room and lobby.
