|German term or phrase: Construction terms|
|Not much context. The following appear in invoices for construction work:|
Hebelsteine and "DF Steine KS"
Hebelkleber (seems related to Hebelsteine)
Spitzboden (could this be "maple floor" ? (Spitzahorn is Norway maple)
Finally, the building is a "Doppelhaushälfte" Is there a better term than "half of a semi-detached house"
|English translation:see below|
3. Ausschaltleitung=breaker circuit
to 4 and 5 I can't help you either. If
I could see what it looks like, it would
be easier. Acc. to the websites I found
on these building block, they seem to
be out of concrete with some insulating
properties etc. i.e. concrete blocks. ?
and the "kleber" must be some kind of mortar. Like I say, with a picture or
further context, I could look it up in my construction manuals/books etc.
