condensation problems

winter_01
It’s official Winter here in Austria.
The light is soft and blueish, the sun sets early and its freezing cold outside. Not the perfect conditions for a sun-lover like I am. And not the perfect conditions for a new floor screed with a good working under-floor heating system either!

The problem is the condensation. We have a humidity of nealy 80 percent indoors… which makes not only the windows sweat … but also the walls almost dripping wet.
While the floor screed is drying its emitting water into the air. That condensates on the walls and windows. So what we did the last couple of days was to open the windows and doors for a couple of hours (the cold air outside is really dry) to change the air in the rooms. But that was just not enough, so Codo lend us a dehumidifier. It’s better. but still a mess… I think we will need a bigger one…

footnote: We’ve already got a bigger one and it works perfect I guess in a few days the problem will be solved! horray!

You already got a small introduction of “the crew” last week.
Today I present to you the first part of action-photography showing the boys tearing down some walls (basically all walls except the external ones!)!
Enjoy!
