And still not finished!!!! But wasn't it a glorious day yesterday!
Well the rubber/foam strips arrived late saturday, my post doesn't come till about 2pm!!! By the way is anyone still waiting for post from the postal strike? I am, 2 parcels, seem to have disappeared into the depths!!!!!!!
So we awoke on Sunday, rareing to go, ate a hearty breakfast and set off about 9.45am!! Now being the perfectionist I am, we had to scrape away all the old rubber, clean off all the bits before we could stick down the new!
Being such a lovely day we roped T into helping so set up the patio, table, chairs and yes parasol! It was so hot we caught the sun.
Anyway T was chief drink and lunch maker, she also entertained Tango who was not impressed about us being so busy and not being able to fuss him!
having scrapped and cleaned and stuck , I was able to start the glazing, whilst hubby scraped and cleaned the roof bars.
I can't remember what time this was but it is definately afternoon, and I have glazed the back and this side, whilst hubby is still up the ladder doing the roof
can you see where we have gone wrong???? I kid you not! A clue, what is missing from the roof? Got it yet?
Windows!!!! at this exact time I hadn't realised and by the time I had, the whole of the front had been glazed too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So what to do, we had to undo the apex and loosen all the roof struts, then grease and slide in the windows from the door end, praying to goodness that we don't crack any glass! It was flipping hard, but we did it and no breakages either!
I couldn't photograph the finished greenhouse last night as it was too dark and we had to finish, using the garden lights and large torches, of which we have a few, well we do live in the country!!! So we got back inside the house at 8pm, at which time we had a carry out!!!!! I had no energy to cook!
So here it is this morning
all thats left to do now is, hang the doors, bubble wrap and fit an automatic opener to one of the windows, I should also get some gravel delivered as I shall weed membrane and gravel down either side of the main path.
I need to do some shopping, sort out some other bits and pieces before the blue car has to go to the garage tonight, for its MOT tomorrow, so I shall probably finish all the bits and pieces in the greenhouse tomorrow when I'm carless!!!!!!!
