A Symbolic Step

The first piece of Polycarbonate Sheeting Secured

I’ve been working on constructing my own greenhouse for several months now, and I’m finally ready to start placing the panels for the roof. To secure the panels, I started with some 2 inch wide boards from the barn as a level roof base, and it took the majority of a Saturday to nail them down. I was working in the HOT sun, and I knew my back was going to be bright red, but I had to secure at least one plastic panel before hanging up the tools for the day.

 I should note, I’ve never built a free standing building before, nor have I spent much time in a greenhouse to see how it’s built. This entire structure is a culmination of dozens of guesses about how things should work. 

So there it is, The roof is finally starting to come together. Now, for some Aloe Vera, and nice long nap…

Here are some earlier posts about the greenhouse:
