Satu went to sauna
Truths about small building projects
any building projects that remain on schedule and go according to set plans? If
you know one, please forward the info to me. Thanks.
This is what’s happened during the spring: we decided to build a sauna in the outbuilding on our back yard. We started with the plumbing works, bought some pipes and wood, and ordered a new front wall for the sauna from our carpenter friend at Viðar og Óskar ehf.
The plumbing is now done. But that is pretty much the extent of it.
As my husband was installing the sauna’s sewage pipes, we found out that our house’s main sewage pipe has not been replaced since the house was built in 1910s.
“Well, as we are doing these plumbing works now, why don’t we change this main sewage pipe as well”, my husband figured.
And that was it. Our small sauna building project turned into a large-scale general building project.
“Well, as we are doing these plumbing works now, let’s install sewage pipes in the garage as well. Then we could build a spare guest room and a bathroom in there.”
I think the idea was excellent. We really needed a spare guest room. I’m sure there are many friends who would like to visit us and spent a part of their holidays building our sauna. They can sleep in the spare guest room. Wonderful.
I’m guessing that “as we are doing these plumbing works now”, it might soon be worth redoing the entire neighbourhood’s sewage system and turn this project into a county-wide development scheme.
While my husband is digging huge trenches in our back garden, I decided to focus on more relevant things – choosing bench towels for the sauna. I mean, who would ever go to a sauna without a soft cotton cloth to protect your bottom?
How do you like these?
Greetings from our Icelandic sauna-construction site.
