As I work from home anyway, things don't feel that different - buy I'll have to pack the completed greenhouses in a little tighter until the restrictions have been lifted. I have a fully completed "Richard" greenhouse here (the glass has arrived and is stored in the racks outside) and I'm busy building and painting a "Bruce" greenhouse - this is a new one. It's a "Mark" but is 6m long and has 8 auto-opening windows in the roof - which are hanging up to dry in the picture below.
I built my workshop inside a large metal barn and it's sound proofed, insulated and has amazing dust extraction equipment keeping it clean and safe - I love it here. I have stocks of timber and accoya to completed another couple of greenhouses so I'll just carry on working as normal for the next few weeks.
After that....I'll have to do my accounts and office paperwork. Apologies to those waiting on quotations - I will get around to those too.
Here's the completed "Tim" greenhouse - with 4 auto-opening roof windows, 2 manual side windows, flagged interior, shelving throughout and 2 cold frames, either side of the door. This greenhouse could be passed through the generations - given that it's built from accoya which has a guarantee for 50 years and a life expectancy exceeding 60 years without maintenance. I've painted this with 3 coats of Profilan paint colour to Farrow and Ball's lichen shade - the paint itself has a life expectancy of 10 years.
we had the opening of our fabulous new greenhouse yesterday.
Your hard work was thoroughly appreciated by the engineer in the group …. the others just wanted one!! Of course they did!
Every time I look out into the garden and see it I smile.
Thanks for all your hard work, we couldn’t be happier.
Mark and Carole
