Jeezus goes to King Karl

Finally I could send Jeezus to King Karl for some gym training. Jeezus got a window seat. However the actual transport was funny
according to DHL, Jeezus went back and forth a couple of times before he came close to Maryland and Karl.
The price of the transport stayed at about USD 1.000 anyway.

The price was calculated on the weight rather than the space. This is what a smallblock Chevy with steel rods weighs without the intake,
but including pallet and plywood box. 160 kg = 352 lb.

A tip from King Karl, make an extra board to make the floor more sturdy. I glued and screwed. Pallet is a 1/2 pallet from Rajapack
and cost SEK 1300 - cirka USD 170 and is shipped to you as a kit.

Time machine

We found an old cottage for sale an hour north of Gothenburg, in Essunga county, close to Nossebro. No folks have been living here
since the mid 60's. Only swallows live here in the barn. Of course this took a lot of work time this summer...

It was Love at first hinge creak. Agneta have had an unmet need to work on a house on the countryside!

A walk right into 1800's! But it can be from the late 1700's as well according to the old model of the stove. Nobody knows for sure.
But be careful with your head, the ceiling is at only 180 cm / 5.9 ft.

Axel was happy that he got the responsibility for the barn!
