September 25th and 28th: Greenhouse

A Greenhouse Weekend

 
 We toughed out a drizzly Saturday morning and got all 4 layers of plastic on the greenhouse!  (2 on each end and 2 on the top)  Blessed with no wind, although taking a couple of hours longer than I hoped, the process went pretty smooth. 
 
We put the end plastic on first.  I decided to try and put 2 layers of plastic on the ends.  It won't be airtight, but I am hoping it will add a bit more insulation.

Next we put on the top 2 layers.  There is a blower that will blow air between these 2 layers to add insulation.  Then we cut out holes for the doors, vents and fan.  Then we reattached the vents and placed the exhaust fan. 
 
I still have a few more steps to go: build 2 doors, lots of benches, run electric and hook up the heater/propane, but I am getting there...and I THINK it will be done before it's time to start seedlings again next year. 
 
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HELPED--WHAT A CREW!!!
