Man cave: Day 12

Frustrating day...

The electrical work went to plan, but the plastering did not!

Several small issues: the roll of "NASA stuff" (the tin foil and bubble wrap stuff) is 15m² and the room is 25m² so someone should have worked out he would need two rolls, then when he went to get another they were out of stock now, so had to go somewhere else; nobody seems to have stock of a loft hatch and ladder; almost exactly enough plasterboard was ordered (again, this is something one can work out in advance!), but several bits were damaged and unusable, so more delay; the screw driver gun failing, and the second one (more delay to get it) was jamming.

However, at the end of the day, we have plaster board. The plan for the morning is skim of plaster and fitting the floor as well as fitting the loft hatch. This means some more painting on Friday and the internal door being fitted and maybe even starting on the work tops - yay! The lights can be fitted Friday (again) and part-P testing done (yes, USB charger sockets are a pain). We'll see how it goes.

  1. Are you doing a separate alarm for the man cave, or have you looked at groups on the galaxy? Groups would allow a single alarm obviously for both, and then you can set/unset it separate to the house.

    1. Groups allowing man cave to be independently alarmed. Moved panel from house so when I alarm and it beeps they don't get cross with me.

    2. I mean the control pad not the panel itself

  2. You can disable the speaker IIRC on the keypad.

  3. Keypad horn is *06 where 06 is the keypad address. Main panel horn is *99. Do you have the installer manual for the galaxy series? Happy to send over...

    2. What flavour panel are you using? Galaxy Classic, G2, G3, or the newer Dimension?

  4. Good choice. If you ever need any RIO's let me know - I have tons here!

    I keep thinking about getting a TouchCentre for my Dimension panel - despite it not being much use other than being pretty...

    1. It's handy for the twin RS485 lines. I had a Galaxy 520 in my old house :) I have a Dimension 48 currently though IIRC (might be a 96, can't remember exactly).

  6. I seem to remember Costco do a wooden loft-ladder/hatch. No use to you, but for others' reference!
