Second Greenhouse Installation

2/9/12 - We have been needing more greenhouse space for some time. Last fall I started researching commercial size solutions but the price tag was too high for our non-existent budget for such things.

Time kept ticking and I kept procrastinating, and here it is, four weeks before I need to start sowing peppers. I started thinking, went outside, measured, and decided to add another Rion greenhouse next to our existing one. So I searched and found a deal and ordered it.

3/26/12 - Making sure that the base is weighted down with the gravel and level is probably the hardest / most time consuming part of the assembly. And also the most important.

3/27/12 - John and Krista assembling the roof.
