Introduction: Weather Station Shelter

Picture of Weather Station Shelter

For my Netatmo Dual Screen Display projet (https://www.instructables.com/id/Netatmo-DualScree...), I needed a shelter for the outside module (temperature and humidity sensor).

The shelter is required to protect the sensor from direct sunlight that will affect the proper measurments.

This is a very simple project which requires just a little tooling and can be achieved within 2 week-ends.

Step 1: Measures and Materials

I gathered wood materials from my stock : plywood, pine and MDF in different size and thickness.

The shelter is approx. 15 cm side and 20 cm height.

Step 2: Building Up the Shelter

I made 3 parts.

The base, the body and the the roof.


Step 3: Painting and Finish

The 3 parts are painted separatly.

The body and roof are glued together at the end.

The base is held with 4 screws.

Since I observe a much more stable measurment of the outside temperature.

Hope you enjoyed it.

My only suggestion is to install some screen wire on the inside to keep wasps and such out from building their nest inside. Other then that, great project.
