Been a tad busy, trying to get the next greenhouse up and running beside the old one.
Once it is up, the older one will undergo Depot Level Inspection and Repair (DLIR) :-)
First order of business this Spring was to relocate plants in the way then flatten the spot
That means No 2 is sitting lower than the other one, but being a full 8 ft high, is still taller than the other one at 6 ft.
But first... Have not used it in eons. I wonder if I remembered to remove the battery??
But before we could move the frame of the soft skinned shelter it had to be empty. We used it for temporary storage the first year.
Now that she got a few more plastic sheds to store her tools and supplies, it became possible to empty it. Moving sale finds, so affordable, she got 3 :-)
Ended up with a spare bolt and missing 3 nuts. Could not see where there was a blank hole???
And that is why you cannot see your own typos or missing fasteners. Your brain ignore your eyes and make up its mind. Which is why when errors could jeopardize safety we used Independent Checks (IC), someone not involved with the maintenance action to give it a second sober look and review of procedures used.
Next day found...
Once both footings are poured and set, will be able to finish levelling ground around it to proper depth.
Also planning a retaining wall on the north side (toward house) between greenhouse and trees.
Yes, will take me a while to finish, but once greenhouse is operational I can move to other projects for a while... The original greenhouse will be stripped down and repaired before Fall.
I have started to gather material for framing both end. Have a 36 inch screen door for front (removed from house front door) the back will get an an aluminum 32 inch storm door from house rear deck (soon). Probably will end up making a 36 in door ??
The special track and wiggle wires have arrived, we have the plastic left over from greenhouse No 1 but we may need more? She want to put down double layer with blowing air in between. Does not have to be air tight, they usually have small blowers continuously blowing air. Seen using bath exhaust vent for that purpose in my travels. Yes, we stop at all greenhouses and plants nurseries :-)
Meanwhile, at the request of a friend, I am starting to gather up my carvings and tools to teach her carving.
You are now up to speed on Casa Demers goings on
My grand kids figured out my battery life ... :-)
Bob, napping in between projects :-)
