Scarecrow requested that I make her a new hothouse so she could pot on her seedling thingies.
There was no hurry as long as it was finished on the weekend
For the guys out there, this is another babe magnet
Ag pipe (2” slips over the pipes but I only had a 200m roll of 1¾” pipe so had to attach them to the post with some wire)
UV Treated Plastic
Self tapping Screws
Washers made from 19mm PVC pipe to prevent the plastic being ripped if there is a breeze
Spirit level, to ensure the posts are in straight (yeah right)
Timber for framework
Clear the area, as ordered/requested, cart the good soil to another area of the garden (especially to the furtherest(?) part of the garden because the exercise is good for you I am reliably informed)
Fill this with several millimetres of crusher dust (by-product of making big rocks into small rocks)
Using a variety of measuring tools (eyes, hands and fingers) insert your posts into the ground to the size and shape of choice.
Attach your pipe.
Attach the framework for both stability and to give you something to attach the plastic to.
Make a door frame
Make a door, cover with shade cloth and attach to the door frame.
Using the especially made washers attach the plastic to the framework.
if it even looks like it might get windy, do this another day or have enough red wines for you not to notice, because the slightest breeze makes handling the plastic a real riot, believe me
This is the end product. Not pretty, but practical.
The inside is ready for occupation.
Whilst I was making the door, Scarecrow completed the plumbing from the rainwater tank
The new occupants move in:
Pot on, Dudes
