5. Discussion & Announcements

Round 1

  • [Thore] My parents have a firm mattress (90*200cm) they don't need anymore. Are we interested in this?
    • we could replace the lower bed one in the dorm with a good matress, but to be confirmed
    • only if they come anyway, there are avaiabale locally also easily
  • [chandi] there are 3 open visitor requests in the mails
    • Nono
      • knows us via Martin
      • 22nd of December to 3rd of January
      • [Andrea] I would like to be responsible for this one and I wanted to ask people if they would be against it or not! I would host :D
        • [matthias] generally in favor of this one, concerns, hosting if you're not here most of the day?
    • Tania
      • from the Canary Islands
      • Janina replied, no further response so far
    • Laurie
      • Workaway says: "Arrival: 15/11/2021 - Departure: 29/11/2021"
      • Janina is in contact, they are going to some other place now and may come afterwards
    • [Andrea] To this point, I wanted to ask, how is the situation after the building month? How are we going to do it with the new workaway requests?
      • [doug] How I see it is that it is up for the host to communicate and decide.
      • [chandi] The work away profile should reflect our non-building-month-situation
      • [zui] Who's hosting should be clear and people should not be hosting to many people, perceived andrea & janina overwhelmed
    • [silvan] Maybe a better hosting system / transparent list of current visitors & their hosts?
  • [Matthias] Would be nice to have the elephant room finished & usable again at some point. Who feels responsible for the finishup?
    • Staircase has not been deep-cleaned
      • -> power hour
    • on top of elephant room bed there is also still lots of dust.
      • -> power hour
    • Door handle?
    • Should we install a door closer? I heard people are unable to reliably close the door Elephant <-> piano room - this one closes even harder.
      • [chandi] I would wait for another 1-2 weeks and reevaluate then ;)
  • [Antonin] future of the scaffolding? I started a thread on Slack.
    • [Tilmann] let's plan garden side wall insulation before making a sale decision. might be possible to use it even when contracting the work.
  • [Silvan] Who will clean up the Basement Party?
    • [doug] It will happen today! straight after a post come coffee break (PCCB)
  • [doug] Bring a tiny bit of the building months forward into the future. For example again something like a wupphour?
    • maybe people want to think about it this week and announce it for next week

Round 2

  • [Matthias] I'll do plastering in the Communal Sleeping room today all day. Are there other people motivated to help/work? Wallpaper removal/painting would be really nice, but I'd also like to set it back in place latest on saturday
    • no resistance for blocking the room until saturday since the house will be quite empty until then
  • [Silvan] Who wants to call Landgut Nemt for beetroot?
    • [doug] I can call there
    • (some discussions about the potatos in the hallway)
  • [tilmann] Matthias and me picked up attic insulation planning again, anybody else also would like to get involved soon? We're doing it to protect condensation in ventilation pipes, but also for the general benefit of less heat loss. Expect expense requests in the coming weeks.
    • [zui] I'm interested in the organizational part
  • [chandi] How to continue with the weekly reproductive tasks?
    • task lottery is considered as the default
    • a small group of doug & chandi thinks about something for next week

Round 3

  • [Matthias] Heating requirements? I am still optimizing the heating system using temperatures we had the last years as a reference point.
    • Temperature: Currently aiming at about 18 degrees (at ceiling). This leads to heating costs of around 4-5 € / day currently at 6 degrees average outdoor temperature/little rooms heated. When we increase the temperatures by 1-2 degrees, this would increase the heating cost around 8-15%.
    • Time: Currently the rooms are warm from about 8-22 (but less warm in the morning). Each hour earlier/longer increases our heating cost about 6,5%.
    • no comments: People seem to be happy with the current situation
  • [Silvan] there is unwashed food in the dumpster kitchen

6. Task lottery & food planning


  • Mon.: chandi, Doug
  • Tue.: Larissa
  • Wed.: Charly, Maxime
