With a few late nights and a long day and the greenhouse is getting a little nearer to completion.
I ran a course of blocks around the base to lift the greenhouse higher as they never seem to be tall enough. It means I've got a large step to get in and out but at least I've got a bit of head room.
The main trouble with these blocks was the fact that I didn't finish laying them until 10 O'clock on the evening! Not what most people are doing on a Saturday night! I was surprised how level they were in the morning considering how many were laid with a head torch!
Dad, feeling sorry for me, came and gave me a hand with his little apprentice, Nick, to help put the frame up. With no instructions and about a thousand pieces there was quite a bit of trial and error involved. I think at one point we each broke down and wept as we took it apart to put it back together again for the fiftieth time.
|Greenhouses side by side. What do you think I should do with the gap in between?|
By the end of the day the frame was up and only a few bolts missing which I brought from a local DIY shop the next day.
Next job is to sort out the floor (it's going to be a temporary measure until the winter) and then get the glass in. Cutting it fine as I've got lots of tomatoes that are ready to go in there!
