greenhouse – the story so far…

You can infer the drama between images… (paving slab cutting with mallet and chisel in particular being left to your imagination – a horrid job; no wonder Jude the Obscure was such a misery)

Then there was a rather  nasty crash……. and pause for a couple of million pieces of glass to be picked out, latterly in the dark!

To be continued…

  1. Wow, an impressive undertaking. You seem to have planned it so well. Now I’m curious. What caused the crash?

    The crash was caused by a combination of tiredness after 9 hours labouring, the fact that it was practically dark when we got to the glazing bit and the assumption that we would understand how the pesky wee clips would work – i.e. lack of planning; had we looked at helpful YouTube video beforehand it would have helped!

    Liking the neat hedge around the edge, very classy.

    Thank you – I really love the traditional box edging for potagers and had wanted to emulate that, hence this construction. The brassica cage that it enclosed, however, didn’t work very well, partly due to the overhanging trees. So it has been reborn as a space for this new greenhouse and I hope it will serve better… thanks for your encouragement!
