Work on the Greenhouse Resumes

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Not that we haven’t been talking about it, but it took the alignment of several factors to get back to working on the greenhouse. The main reason was problem solving, second was the heat, and lastly, Dan’s knee. Of the heat, it seems logical to work early in the morning while it’s still cool out. Except that because of our humidity, our mornings are incredibly dew drenched until about lunchtime. Dan wanted the roof completely dry before attempting anything. 

The problem solving involved the upper section of the roof.
This section of the greenhouse roof is made from repurposed doors and windows.

He carefully researched adhesives and sealers, all of which claimed to be super effective and excellent. Which they weren’t, so that there were micro-leaks when it rained. The trouble was, it was impossible to tell where they were coming from. No dripping when it rained, just tell-tale wet spots on the dirt floor inside the greenhouse. I said, ‘it’s just a greenhouse,’ but that didn’t satisfy Dan. So after a lot of thought and research, he decided to cover them.

He’s never been real keen on those clear corrugated roofing panels, although we used them to good effect for the milking room skylight. And now, they’re flimsier than ever, so that was another hesitation. In the end, it seemed the most cost effective idea.

The day after he got them installed, it rained.

The floor remained completely dry! So that was a relief. And, I don’t think it looks all that bad.

Next is covering the gable ends. Then it’s on to wall trim and paint. And then we can get on to the interior.
