A step closer to Fiber Optics

After a long silence there was finally contact from the contractor that would pull the fiber optic internet cable. This time they brought some heavy equipment. which turned out to be a good thing. The under ground pipe where the cable should go through was blocked in 4 places.
Besides I finished the walls for the toilet and went shopping for a toilet with Martijn.

A digital sauna thermometer

This was a short week as I have to go to Malta for work. I did add some insulation and walls to the upstairs toilet room. Besides I put a digital thermometer in the sauna. This ds18b20 waterproof sensor is connected to a Sonoff basic which is running tasmota firmware, so it can be easily added to the home automation software. I created an automation to switch on the salt wall LEDs once the sauna hit 70 degrees.

Compost heap and bedroom door

After such a productive vacation week, the result for this weeks seems pretty little. As the compost heap in the back of the garden was getting a bit unorganized, I figured I make good use of the pallets that where used to deliver the pellets. With them I build a much more organized compost heap.
The next thing in line was the bedroom, as when that is finished it will start a series of event towards finishing a lot of things around the house that are either waiting for each other or for the space to do it.
I started with a door frame. The existing wall was not entirely level, but I figured it was good enough. Next thing I created a room for the upstairs en suite toilet.

Testing the sauna

The manual of the heater said to fire it up the first time in a well ventilated place. The best place I could think off was outside, so out it went and there it was fired up for the first time.
Meanwhile I finished the lower bench, it starts to become a reals sauna .
Next thing was connecting the heater and adding the stones and the sauna is ready! Time to test it. So fire in the heater, Sauna Session beers out of the fridge and sauna hats on. Ready to sweat!
