If you've lived in Kansas for at least a month, you know we have wind: fast/slow, hot/cold, north/south/east/west. We have wind. And it's always more-so on the farm. Sometimes we appreciate the wind that day, and sometimes we don't. Take last month, for instance.
Paula's brother Mike came down for a few days Christmas to help with farm projects. Finally, the greenhouse was going up (this project has been on the to-do list for quite some time). Once we got started, it was fairly simple.
Day 1: level and fill the foundation
Day 2: construct the frame
Day 3: insert the fiberglass panels
Day 4: see photo below
Three days to build. Two hours to demolish. Eric stated is was a complete structural failure. Even the molded aluminum piece attaching the side walls to the base was ripped in two. At least we didn't need the ladder for final tear-down. All the panels are piled north of the greenhouse and will be used in future, more stable greenhouse projects.
Can you believe starting seeds is just a month away?
