Today I thought I would share some of the progress on a couple of construction projects. After some time in the design and preparation phase, the cold frame is beginning to take shape.
We bought the 2 hardwood sleepers to create the back wall of the cold frame.
They are now in position.
The compost tumbler which can be seen in the background was quite close to where we were working so it has been moved. GMan is yet to decide on a final location for it.
The area under the house is perfect for storage of materials and construction jobs. The panels of wire on the left hand side are earmarked for the top of the pergola.
The wire will be installed once a couple more crossbars are in place. But first the crossbars need to be painted.
We normally do the painting under the house but on a sunny and windy day like today it was perfect to paint outdoors. The shorter pieces on the trestles at the right of the photo are the corner posts for the cold frame.
There will be more photos when the construction is completed.
