Progress on the Greenhouse

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

Even though we haven’t had a lot of rain in recent weeks, we’ve had enough to test Dan’s roof solution to the little leaks we had. It definitely fixed the problem. The next step was the gable ends (are they half gable ends?). 

This side of the greenhouse gets the afternoon sun, so this side is where we wanted a solar vent fan to exhaust the heat. 

Also, we plan to put a couple of rainwater barrels inside, so a pipe will be needed to collect rain water from the front gutter on the house and run it into the barrels on the inside.

The fan is a solar attic fan, similar to the one we installed in the attic. As you can imagine, the greenhouse holds a lot of heat in summer! I doubt I’ll be able to use it for growing anything then, but the heat and humidity need to be vented. It kept my sewing room quite warm last summer!

Dan chose to cover the rest of the opening with double-walled polycarbonate. 

I don’t think there was any special reason for this choice, other than price and availability (of which there seems to be less these days.) We originally looked for used triangular windows, but found none that came close to fitting. 

Trims were next.

Then it was on to the side.

There’s still the back side to do, and then, we can paint.
