    We have a good start on it. Setting the ground stakes was very time consuming. The site is far from level, one corner is at least a foot lower than the others. The ground is still frozen here so we had to inovate. We leveled the first side and lined the top of all the stakes to meet the line then we leveled one end and ran a stake on the last corner. We ran a diaginal to make sure it was square and drove the rest of the stakes. Farm Teck shorted us one stake so they overnited it to us on Friday. We still don't have it. We put part of the baseboards on the front half of the 2 sides and have the door in and one narrow panel. The guy that is helping me has a hard time understanding the instructions and it slows the pace a lot but he wants to do a good job and between the 2 of us it will get done. It has rained the last 2 days so that is as far as we have got. I have take some pictures to show when it is complete. Hope to get back at it tomorrow. I have to do some fill on the one corner but I don't think I will even try to get that one corner up that much. I may have a split level greenhouse. We have all the arches in except the one we need the stake for.

    The stake came today and we set it put up the last arch. We almost have the front end done (one more panel to put up). Started putting the struts in and found that the stakes on the left side don't line up right we don't have 48in on center. We have to move the 3 center stakes. Don't know how involved this will be but not looking forward to it. This is the 5 th day of a 3 day job.

    Hang in there, Larry. Just think about how nice it will be when you have it finished.

    Larry it never goes the way its suppose to the instructiuons are written by someone who has probably never put one up. Take your time, remember if the ground is frozen its going to move a little when the frost line thaws. nd you could be off again.

    good luck.

    We have been lucky, no rain. We are in shirt sleeves today. We finished all the big pieces of polly carb today. We just have to put some small pieces at the top. We wrestled with the big panels trying to get them to go around the cuves as per instructions. We finally thought it would be easier to slide them in from the top. It worked like a charm. We used a little silicone spray on the curves and they went in like closing a window.
