« Part 3: Its Going Up (Pic heavy) Part 4 of Greenhouse series Part 5: Its coming along »

Got back at the greenhouse yesterday evening. There were a couple of details on the structure that needed finishing. On the rear, down near the ground, between the two boxes I had to add a bracket so that the poly could attach. No biggie.

I had to add a small “extension” to the box in front to cover up the leg of door frame. I needed this as the boxes were not the same width and in order to keep the symmetry one of the legs had to go outside of the planter box. I managed to find some weathered wood to help the extension blend in. Pocket screws front and back. I finished it off with a small brace in the back.

I was a couple of 2×4s short so it was off the Home Depot. While there I picked up a mess of black gate hardware for the door. I ripped the 2×4, took some final measurements and started on the roof of the greenhouse.

It is not actually that heavy. I still have to put in braces and frame out for two roof vents. Then build the vents.

I think it is coming together rather well . . . for something without a plan. It has been a two steps forward . . . pause . . . another two steps . . . back up one step . . . forward again. :-)

DW wants something fancy for the door . . . so I gotta get some direction from her on that
