A couple of long days and late nights installing the top to the base I built a couple of weeks ago. The weather was great and it was fun to just push on with a relatively small greenhouse for a change. I parked the van on the track beside this greenhouse and slept here - rising in the early morning for a quick jog around the area before starting work at around 7am - quiet work - no loud power tools at that time in the morning. There is always some work that needs doing.
I got a few photos as the light went at the end of the day but you can see there's still a lot to do before I finish up - the flooring slabs need pointing up, shelving to be installed, potting station to be built...
The completed greenhouse interior at around 7pm.
The problem with this time of year is that it goes dark at 4pm - and whilst I just carry on working (with head torch and lamp) you just can't get a decent photo when you've finished the job!
So...here are some pictures of an almost completed "Tim" greenhouse in accoya, painted in the colour of "green smoke".
Very nearly completed in this photo. The shelving has gone in - just some clearing up, a bit of sanding down and touch-up painting to do on the inside. This job was as much to do with the base as building the top and you can really see the slope I had to overcome when you look at the back of this structure. It's the first time I've needed ladders just to put the guttering up.
