My word!  You've never seen one?

I've just got to know what a Quonset hut is Daniel.

Randy, what a disappointment in the food department. 

Comment by sk8eycat on April 25, 2015 at 11:48am

Randall...I thought those river cruise ships were supposed to feature local specialties of whatever region they were sailing through.  That's what their glossy brochures say, anyway.  Whatta bummer. 

(Of course, I have also heard that the cruise ships themselves are not always as advertized.  A friend went on a French river trip that had been arranged as a group tour by a single travel agency , and she said the boat smelled like it had previously been a garbage scow, and the "staterooms" were tiny. The water was rationed. She wouldn't talk about the food; she just made a face.  Of course that was more than 20 years ago....)

There used to be a "famous" hoffbrau haus-type restaurant in Los Angeles, and the food was pretty much like what you've described....  Maybe that IS "local" German-style cooking.  Gah!

Randall, did you have any spätzle? They're one of my favorite foods in the world.

Cruise ship food (on the Danube) is pretty much "Americanized", catering to the tastes of old people. Lots of "meat and potatoes", breads and rich desserts. I mean, it was really good, but not exactly foods of the region. Vegetables were sparse and over cooked.

On the last day, we ate at the famous Hofbrau House in Munich. We had bread for "appetizers". Then nothing but a slab of overcooked pork and a blob of potato something or other--very gluelike. It was awful. The beer was the only saving grace.

You've got lots of stamina, Daniel, to attack such a big project when you're not feeling well! My hat off to you!

Daniel - there's another Chucks on Hwy. 99 in Hazel Dell.

Mike, I forget the kitchen dimensions, but I bet this kitchen is less than 16 foot wide.  All of our houses were built in part, in factories.  The difference is which part.  All of the framing, drywall, flooring, appliances, paint, cabinets, etc, came from manufacturers.  I just put it together myself.   The newest trend is  to use shipping containers.  Growing up, I had relatives who lived in quonset huts.  I don't think they are as good for heating and cooling, as a manufactured home.

Spud, I hope the silicone caulking works for you.  I don't see why it wouldn't.  It is moisture resistant and flexible. 

Patricia, I don't have energy.  I only do an hour or two at a time.  I plan ahead, do each part as a project on its own. One day, buy the 2X4s and screws and drywall.  Next week, cut them to shape.  Next week, put them up.  Next week, sand and pain.  Etc.  Slow but doable.  The hardest part is thinking.  My brain plods and sleeps.  So I have to do it without thinking too much.

There will be an island with good lighting for kneading bread and making pies and stuff, which I love doing.  I'm looking around for under-cabinet lights for the same reason.  I don't see so well.  I'm hoping the new cabinets are tighter construction so less mouse-friendly, but not counting on it.  The cabinets will have pull out drawers instead of shelves.  Easier to find stuff.
