Knocked together a shelter for my wireless Temp/Humidity/Pressure sensor. This should protect it from rain, snow, sleet – whatever.

Wait – I thought there were only 2 seasons in MI – winter and not winter??

I have a weather station in my shop, it’s called a window. I figure I can get make a weather forecast as accurate as the local one just by looking out the window.

That is a decent sized hole in the brick for the unit. Does it sit inside and draw air into it?

ROFL… You’re not too far from wrong though not as bad as Minnesota!!

It’s just a little birdhouse kinda thing with a cigarette pack size wireless package stuck inside. So no holes other than the #6 screws into the mortar.

This is a great idea. Very well executed. Seems like it will help with the wildly inaccurate readings in direct sunlight.

I like it, good job!!!

will the black shingle affect the inside temp, and will the brick radiate the heat that it stored in the evening when the air temp cools?

Kind of like I was told about summer in Montana. If it falls on a weekend, they have a BBQ 8^)

Looks like part of the house, nice traditional looking Stevenson type screen.

It’s on the North side so cool/ambient temp. Sun does hit it for at 20 Minutes after dawn but so low that it doesn’t heat it.
