So another view updates.
i had to hurry a bit with the bathroom because the concrete floor would be poured in next week, so i used some hdpe pipes i have from my work for the water connections.
Also i was advised when using a shower drain to pour some none shrinking concrete around the drain to prevent leakage in the future when the concrete dries.
The cove i have in the rooms upstairs are also done now, i mean the front piece, gives a total different look when they are white.
i also mounted the plaster stops , if thats the word, took a little work and i tried it first with plaster but that was not a big success for me so i used high tac glue.
and these are with high tac
On top of the window frames i placed insulation 13cm thick PIR plates and on top of that plaster board so it could be given a nice smooth finish and hopefully keep some cold out.
Then monday arrived, and it was finally time for the new floor on top of the floor heating system,
i guess my neighbor was not happy, big truck coming over with generators inside and everything automatically.
5:45 he arrived , did some pre work and 6:45 the engine started, haha sounded like a airplane and then the hose that looked like a big snake that was being attacked.

Very happy with the result, as it is almost a month ago it is finally slowly drying and i can connect the floor heating,
another "problem" would be using the floor heating since there is a protocol i need to follow with turning the heat up every 24hour 5 degrees more until i reach the water temp off 40 degrees.
Problem is that i do not know how or if this is possible with my earth heat pump system.
I also picked up some stuff for my garage , nice cabinets , and a bigger warehouse shelves to clean my garage.
i bought a lot , had to clean out a room with equipment , in the end the room was a bit bigger then i expected.
resulting in allot of stuff haha.
for example some of these 19" servers and even better a serial port server
and i regret it that i bought microphones to place in my house for VR , i opened a box that has 7 of these mics in it.
serial port server
Bought some wires as well for a little price, as if i did not have enough yet haha.
but probably nobody noticed this lot since i had it for the price of spool
i mean the grey signal wires.
needed some lights to replace the older fluorescent tubes which almost do not work anymore in my garage,
found this bargain for 6 € a piece
Already placed some of them and finally there is light
Another thing that happened in my home automation that i got running, just a few simple temp/hygro units from oregon scientific.
Suddenly when i arrived the door would not open, this is using a 433mhz remote.
At first i thought it was my own fault since i placed another 433mhz unit from china to turn on the lights or off when i sit in the car in the evening.
Then i also found that all the sensors where offline , in homeseer i could not read any value and luckily i grabbed the right one that caused the problem.
the batteries are empty and then it crashes everything in a certain range working on 433mhz.....
I have been told before about this but didn't knew it would literally turn everything wireless down
Nice if you are having wireless window/door sensors or smoke sensors......
Time to plaster,
the green paint is to get a better bonding between the plaster and the layer where it is coated on.
Helped myself 1 day when i had a day off, it was fun to do but i don't see myself doing this all day every day as a job.
A friend of mine did it without problems and very smooth result.
and here he also hide the big steel support beam that's in my roof, took 13 bags of plaster 25kg each to get the ceiling nice and take out the height difference, very happy with the result.
it looks already very different com compared to before, cant wait till its dry and i can spray everything in color.
And i bought 160m2 of plastic wood look floors, its no PVC but very hard material and waterproof.
It does take some time and you have to take precautions before laying this material since with heat it will expand and retract when cold but keeping some more distance around the walls will do.
More to come
