Introduction to the Hobbyist Miner’s Basement Renovation
Welcome to another update on the hobbyist miner’s basement renovation project. Over the last few days, our miner has been working on renovating his basement, focusing on drywall installation and setting up his mining rigs and office space. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the progress made so far and discuss the plans for the future.
Basement Renovation Progress
The basement renovation has come a long way since the last update. The miner and his team have been working tirelessly to install drywall and have almost finished the job, only needing to complete the window area and utility closet. The basement now has Ethernet and power setup for each room, with the miner’s office relocated next to the mining room.
They have also made progress on their mining room. There is plenty of Ethernet connectivity, with four ports across various areas within the room. There are also numerous power outlets available to accommodate mining rigs and other devices that may require power, such as monitors and chargers.
Office Setup and Mining Rigs
The miner’s office is currently housing the mining rigs temporarily while the mining room is under construction. The office itself does not have any lighting installed yet, but the plan is to install LED lights soon. On one side of the office will be a workbench with storage and Ethernet and power connections for a functional workspace.
In the other half of the room, the miner’s desk will be set up, with a TV above the desk area. The office currently hosts a 12 GPU mining rig for Ergo, two Radeon RX 580s for Ethereum, a GeForce RTX 3060 for Ergo, two AMD Radeon R9 380s for Ethereum Classic, and six NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060s for Ethereum mining.
