I want to turn my cellar into a decent workspace but it's currently too damp. If you leave things down there the cardboard goes limp and metal slowly corrodes.
It may be that I have to resort to professional tanking of some kind, but as an opening gambit I'm going to try drying it out with a dehumdifier.
Emptying the condensate tank regularly is dull, but there's a connection for an external drain, so I've built a bigger tank out of an old 'Really Useful Box'. This complete with float switches to sense the level and a pump to push the water up out of the cellar into my garden.
It'll be riveting stuff.
Once I run a network cable down there.
