A little more straight-forward than my last visit here - I just need to complete building the walls, lay the sandstone floor inside and build a separate cold frame.
It rained quite a lot on the first day so the gazeebo, which I always carry, made a rare and useful apperance.
Another tricky base build this week. To be fair, it's always hard to tell if something is truly level until you start work on it - and it was soon obvious we had a problem. The doorway is about 1 1/2 foot higher than the rear so we're faced with a potential big drop down when you open the door.
Another problem was that all the building materials could only be delivered near the road - which is on the other side of the house you can see in the photo below. I am so grateful that my customer has a ride-on mower and trailer I could use to move all the materials down to the site.
Unfortunately I ran out of time, and materials, this week. I'm going to lay another extra 4 courses around the base so that the front elevation is taller and will look in proportion with the completed greenhouse. I will compact a lot of hardcore on the internal floor which will lift the height as well and then lay the flooring slabs on a dry mix and add a small step under the doorway to lessen the height difference again. But this will have to do for this week.
