    Forrest the cross braces aren't level. I have to do that next. I mainly wanted it sturdy so we could go to bed and wake up to find it still standing. And one set of the "ribs" isn't up so it makes it look a bit off.

    How is your greenhouse coming along Armando? Start a new thread with your progress as I am sure many would love to see it.

    BTW...Welcome to OI ;)

    Thanks for checking in Tom, i'm ironing out the last kinks in the greenhouse and should be posting pictures soon. It's definitely not as nice as Candace's greenhouse though!

    So, I thought it was time for an update. We've put in close to 1/2 the panels. It's not been easy with me having some personal issues and the weather. Plus, we have to have 3 bodies to get a panel up, so that means working around the kids schedules. Hopefully we'll have a nice patch of weather and can get more up soon.

    Looking good, Candace! I'm sure you can't wait to have it done, and it looks like you're in the home stretch.

    That would be so great to have in winter. *sigh*

    I'd call you a lucky shit but I know that luck has nothing to do with it.

    Still...you lucky shit, you. :D

    Well Done!!! I....we are all impressed! It's hard for me to imagine cold weather with our local temps bouncing around the 100 degree mark. It has been a while since we had such high temps this early in the year. Wish I could send you some of this warm Texas weather....

    just tom

    O.K. It's time for some follow up photos since the shell is now completely done. Yay! I recently took down all the scaffolding, finished hanging the door, putting in the last 3 louvre windows and the last of the polycarb. Now, for the inside work...
