The renovated greenhouse

The renovated greenhouse
At last, it is pretty much complete!

It took a lot longer than I expected to aluminium tape the tops and tape & clip the bottoms of each of the polycarbonate panels. A very slow and finger numbing process. This also meant each of the 12 louvre panels took as long to prepare as the large, full size panels!

I have also built the staging - two 4 foot sections, one with a tray top, one with rungs. A space-saving water butt sits in one corner near the door...just need to work out a way to get rainwater into it :)

Final job will be fitting the automatic vent-openers to the louvres and roof-vents, something for the longer spring evenings.

As a reminder, here are the before and after images. I am quite chuffed with the result!
