Its all in the box of electronics I built, which I will be doing a full write up on when I finish the workshop side. But briefly arduino Mega with ethernet shield connected to DHT22 temp and Humidity sensors for indoors and out, then I interface this lot with the Blynk app which displays the values and allows me to control the temps and all the lighting/sauna etc.
Long time no post guys, but starting to get this back on track over the next month.
Recap - pinshack is finished and sauna is finished, just the workshop to paint, flooring, skirting and back mouldings to do.
So I decide to total up the costs so far :- (trumpet fanfare playing in the distance!)
PInshack and workshop total costs = £5496.00
And the sauna if interested = £1559.00
GRAND TOTAL = £7055.00
That's not bad at all I don't think!!!!! Those costs include absolutely everything down to nails and screws, so it does show you how much you can save if you have the time, skills and inclination to do it yourself!!!
Its even less than one new pin ie my Dialed In !
So will be, starting to finish the workshop soon and then I will be doing the write up of the electronics controlling it all
That would be really useful Kev, I am still planning mine but will be unashamedly stealing a lot of the design ideas from your shed build so an idea of what to buy and how much it should cost will help no end.
OK here we go - in broad sections starting from the ground up!!
Foundations £390 (no concrete here used eco grids)
4x2 framing £400
6x2 roof joists £222
wall OSB board £169
Roof decking £166
and trims £600
Soffit and fascias £126
french door set £345
Rockwool RWA45 mm inuslation batts 50mm to walls and floor 100mm in roof space £338
Wall timbers and £300
Consumer unit 10 way£45
Laminate floor £118
Skirting & Door £75
all electrics which include sauna, pinshcak and workshop
2 x smoke alarms, 2 x PIRs, 12 sockets, 2 switches, 13 backboxes, 18 downlights, LED flood, emergency lights, 6 ip65 soffit lights, 2x soffit spks, 1 IP camera, 1 IP POE switch,
2 x 1.5kw oil radiator, 2 x sauna spks, 1 sauna fan, 1 PIR light switch
total for elecs = £518
missed off 10mm SWA Cable, ethernet cable and alarm cables back to house
GRAND TOTAL = £6045 (does include some no pinshack bits ie sauna stuff)
Hi Pete yes by far - but it did include all of the trims for the corners as well and around door and window. I had to use fireproof because building within 2m of boundary so little choice. I would of used barrel log shiplap at half the cost if I could of but then it needs treating every year so I think the extra expense was well worth it. Also if I get bored with the colour it can be painted with hardieplank paints to about any colour I want
Updates to follow soon chaps. Cleared out the workshop side of the pinshack at the weekend and work has now begun on finishing it.
jobs to do ..
paint walls and ceiling
install all sockets, lights, oil radiator, smoke detector, occupancy sensor, alarm PIR and speakers
lay laminate floor(reclaimed from lounge in house)
skirting and back moulds to door and windows
undercoat and gloss
wire up and configure/test all the network stuff/IP cameras and the Blynk box of electronics for controlling it all
Hi Guys a couple of pics of the white workshop!!! It needs more coats of paint yet. You can see the box of tricks in the corner, which is still work in progress, but is currently running the pinshack side of the shed and will run all the workshop lights and heating once I install them all.
will do a full write up as promised of the trick box once its complete.
yes there is a arduino mega with a piggy backed network board. the 2 relays in the middle are 30amp jobs for the the 2 x 1.5kw oil filled radiators in each room - one in pinshack and one in the workshop. temp is monitored by a DHT22 in each room and controlled via sliders in the blynk app
I will do a full right up of electronic and blynk app and the integration with alexa as well which works good.
