The Greenhouse…continued

There was a bit of a delay with the greenhouse construction.  We put up the frame last week and had hoped to finish it over the next few days.  But when we began the next step we realized we were missing some parts.  The parts are all numbered and we had two bundles of #801 and no #800.  Oh no!  I called the company and they were great about it and promised to send along a bundle of #800.  They said we would get it by the end of the week.  It arrived yesterday.  So today we were able to do a bit more.

IMG_2860We put up the roof rafters (that was what was missing) and the uprights on the sides.  It was a bit tricky but once you got the hang of it it went fairly smoothly.

IMG_2861Next was uprights in the front and back and the window for the roof.  

IMG_2862The panels are made of plastic..polytex it is called.  They slide right in.  Here is the front done, but for the door.

IMG_2863Checking the directions as we go.

IMG_2887We got all the panels in and we got the roof window to open.  It is looking very much like a greenhouse!

IMG_2876That is enough for today.  Time to clean up and get supper for Fergus and Merlin….

Tomorrow is another day..

    You’re doing a great job Patti, it looks terrific your hens will love this in the winter

  3. It’s looking good! Why is it there’s always a piece missing? Great idea to put your hens in as well, that’s something we’re hoping to do with our tunnel after all of the spuds come out 🙂

      Thanks….it is coming along….hopefully there will be no more missing parts, but that does always seem to be the way of things, doesn’t it? The girls will only be in the greenhouse for periods during the day..Cluckingham Palace is actually bigger…but colder. And at some point I will want to start growing things in the greenhouse so…but by then it should be warmer outside and they will be busy in their run.😊
