The greenhouse is nearly completed. A few more frame pieces to go on and then the rubber and one can start glazing. Just in time for the freezing weather.
My time working on it has been limited because of the carpel tunnel in my arms, it causes me to drop the tools when working overhead, and because of the angles of the nuts, they have to be done – overhead. Otherwise i would be onto the glazing stage now.
Anyhow, I will at least be able to start experimenting with a thermal battery in the greenhouse, basically a barrel of water that gets heated up in the daytime by the sun, to see if it will make any difference to making the greenhouse frost free. Thats the goal, I do not want it at a high temperature, just enough to stave off the freezing.
I have yet to decide which side to place the top window, and wether or not to use one off the old greenhouse.
Yet to research…Is there a reason the top opening windows are staggered? Or can they be placed opposite one another? Two on one side, against the prevailing wind direction. or not.
Is there a reason for the open window placement???
One hates my brain when it goes off on a tangent like this.
