The whole country seemed to be washed out in rain this week.
It was a constant downpour on the Wednesday while I was trying to get the glass in. But there were some short periods in the week where the sun came out and dried everything up. I worked from 8am until 9:30 most days this week - a very big greenhouse so it needed a little more time than usual. Tony assures me he’s going to fill it with plants. I really really want to see that!
You wouldn’t believe how quickly this greenhouse gets hot - so plenty of ventilation.
I put 8 opening windows along the sides, 6 automatic windows in the roof and a large one above the potting station along the back.
Big enough?Tony asked me to design a greenhouse to fit exactly on an existing concrete base.
I took this photo after unloading the van on the first day - nice sunny day then. It hardly looks like enough materials around to build the greenhouse but nearly every greenhouse I build fits in my van (this one took me 2 trips though! I was on the way to Brighton anyway...)
I loved building this huge greenhouse - exciting, great fun - but it’s also comforting to know that the next few are quite small. A change is as good as a rest they say! On we go...
