    Well guys the shell is finished! We put the last bit of the roof peak on about 3:30 this afternoon. We still have the fan shutters to install and the end corners have to be taped. At one point I told you that one side of the greenhouse was lower than the other by as much as 1 foot. We I have been trying to come up with a way to fill it without spending the grocery money and I did. On the south side of my home along the driveway is a ridge covered with vinca that was broken up cement blocks from a distant tragedy. They are now in the way of drainage, when we have heavy rains the blacktop on the drive just dosen't take up the water like the gravel did. About 15 wheelborrow loads of them has filled that low side and eliminated the that ridge so I have better drainage on the side of the drive too. I have put shreded leaves on top of the broken up cement so it is safe to walk on. Now I plan to cover the outer edges with styrofoam to help keep out the cold and cover that with pavers. The pavers will be a mixed lot as I have some that are recycled rubber tires and some that are brick etc. Maybe by the weekend I will be able to post some pictures.

    No my camera isn't broke, it is me that's almost broke. Well the day has come, I hope you like what you see.

    This is the remains of my old greenhouse that had to be removed before we could start the new one.

    Note the snow on the side of the wall. It is about 24 degrees out when this taken.
