Don't let her google for "Tiny House Movement".

NordieMissus is hooked.

A large shed and a tiny house may work though...

It occurs to me that tiny would be directly proportional to time spent painting. Bring it on, I say. I'm having enough trouble with 90mē!

As for sheds, I'm quite partial to this one: http://12-gaugegarage.com/

We were at a Christmas part yesterday. The people live in a concerted steel clad shed. It's on of those with a tall main building with a gable roof and two lean-to sections. They lived in the left lean-to, with was fitted out like a main house and the main part and the right lean-to were one large room which housed all the toys, with plenty of room left.

I just found this picture on the net, it could be the actual building, before it was painted and converted. The location looks familiar.

That's what I'm talking about. Not so much for the sustainablility/ ecofriendly ideas but more for the idea of having a cheaper house, no mortgage, good sized workshop (& chuckens & raised garden beds for her), more expendable income to spend on polluting toys, less need to work as much so more time to tinker in the workshop.

It's funny but I have never felt like going feral before but the fricking mousewheel carries so much momentum sometimes I feel like jumping off & growing a really bushy ginger beard, sell driftwood tied together as garden sculptures at the market & eating vegetables.

Must be that last ride to Golden bay that's done it


Oh tell Mrs Nordie we've got bees now so we're cooler than yous- chuckens are soo yesterday

Chuckens went in June, bees arrived 6 weeks ago. Gary grabbed the varroa mite test strips today and stuck a penthouse suite on for them...

Totally agree with you on that. I am making plans at the moment to extend my shed about a third bigger.

Its easier than cleaning it up.

There's some quite nice transportables out there now. Been considering buying a spot of land in the Waikato and putting one on it.

Order the bearings so hopefully they will be in early next week.
Anyone in the engineering game know if the shims used are a common item? I wouldn't know what depth to use untill I put the shimming plate on & measure it. that would [prob be over xmas.

Washed my bike this morning for th eAnnual Ulysses toy run. In doing so I ripped the rubber gaiter over the UJ. Nordie spotted the repair with black tape. What is it with me & rubber parts

on a lighter note this is a brill vid if you haven't seen it already.
I reckon there'll be a bit of water in the gearboxes after the rivercrossing.

Um, what to say?
I have received the bearings & will post up what they cost me etc. The SKF dude here went out of his way to find the input bearing with a brass cage as the new ones are polytholymideafghanistan.
I dropped off the box to my engineering co to cut the circlip in & press the bearings in. Nutso is lending me his shimming plate & i'll gte them to measure etc.

The other box I'm using from Berlina is actually OK. It has a few extra neutrals which come in handy if you just want to cruise to the side of the road for a durrie.
I took Schmidt offroad the other nite on the Nads xmas BBQ ride & although it handled it alright I don't feel comfortable doing too much of that stuff on it - too many bangs on the bashplate & footpegs. I nearly went off a bank as I tried to match the pace with the lite bikes & he didn't like slowing down too much. bit of a puckering moment. We went thru some very tight slippery gravel roads & I had to nana it round. i need to grow a bit of bottle to give it a bit more throttle to get it round - or just take it easy & not drop it.


So i've been thinking about berlinas parts hanging around. I was looking at Snotsos forks & as I'm not riding him much at the mo I was thinking about releiving him of them for a while & fitting them to berlina & making a mongrel ISDT bike. Someone I know has a whole YZ front end sitting in their emporium um i mean garage that may be a worthy transplant.

Then of course I see Winston & ........ racing & I start thinking...
