The Greenhouse Build Part 2 5

This past weekend we started the build and man was it a hot one. Every day was above 30C in the shade.

Day 1

A little bit more digging to get the beams in

Day 3 we got the first rafters up and some of the polycarbonate panels. The day was shorter than usual because of a mandatory Unionized break for the England Euro Match.

Day 4

Some tricky alignment of the rafters slowed us down but 90% of the greenhouse is done. We are missing a door, trim and benches.

    This is awesome project.
    I’ve been dying to build one myself. Is it designed to be a 4 season house in our harsh Canadian north ?

      I wont using it this winter but next year I plan on insulating the knee walls and adding, additional layer polycarbonate and of course heaters.
      I just put in three data logging temperature/humidity gauges and par light meter to see where I am at with my readings.

    Happen to have a link to the greenhouse kit you decided to buy?
    I did not know they made nice looking polycarbonate greenhouses 🙂
