Stift Cochem Finished




16.1.1 ~ The last hurdle

(December 30, 202)



On Thursday December 30th, the one but last day of 2021, I finished the vegetation of my Stift Cochem Module.

Celebrating New Year's Eve with friends, New Year's Day was the moment that the module was connected to the Cochemer Bahn. 

It all started like this, eleven months ago...



Bebenhausen Kloster... Sold Out!


Therefor in stead came...










The following pictures will tell their own tale









The people in the vineyard will not come until tomorrow...








16.1.2 ~ Wiring Connection

(January 2, 2022)





What can I say...? 







16.1.3 ~ Adjustments


Last night I discovered there was a light leak in the corner.

The joint had been pushed out slightly due to the tension of the roof.

The hole was closed with a profile of this same construction kit.

I have also placed a partition in the spire - in both lanterns - in front of each lamp, so that you can now see the light, but no longer see the lamp.




That same tension had also caused the roof ridge to rise.

In order not to get glue traces or to damage something, I again chose to repair this with wood.

The space in between was filled on both sides with wooden planks.




Now let's enjoy some more shots of the whole compound





The skyline has changed significantly.
