Built the Greenhouse

Other

1/23/2021 – For the last two weekends and the week between we spent any hours when it was not too cold and windy or raining assembling a ClimaPod Virtue greenhouse. Today we buckled in the last 6 mm thermoplastic panel and all that is left is some cross-bracing, the louver in the back/north wall, and more ties to the foundation.

Relevant dates:

  • Arrived on FedEx Truck – 1/11/2021
  • 12th-15th extended existing concrete slab with 4″x4″ posts/frame and pea gravel.
  • 18th to the 23rd – assembled the frame with polycarbonate panels.
  • 24th to 27th – Completed crossbracing, door supports, and installed louver.
