In addition to the bank holidays, I took an extra day either side. It was perfect weather for plotting and that’s where I spent most of my time.
In between weeding, potting on and a BBQ or two, I managed to build the polytunnel reclaimed from Park Road. I’m not entirely certain what I’ll use it for; it may become London Plot HQ.
This is the third polytunnel build and I still need to read the instructions and re-do things two or three times but here’s the frame. I used screw-in foundation tubes – I totally recommend them over digging 2-foot pits for the anchor plates and tubes. I had to shorten the middle section to fit the available space.
I also moved (with help) the purple potting shed to make space for the tunnel and it’s created a very sheltered seating area as a bonus.
Just need to find a new spot for the rubbish aka stuff that might be useful…
Good for you, and well done. xx
Awesome!! Looking good 🙂
Great to see the construction of the poly tunnel frame. I especially appreciate seeing those diagonal bars – I did a similar thing when building my greenhouse, and I was impressed at how much extra stability they added to the structure.
Thanks. The crossbars are essential for structural stability, particularly on such a windy site
Reclaimed poly tunnel? priceless, looks in good shape too. Well done, looking forward to seeing how it works out (as of course you must be).
Finally retrieved from Park Road. Turns out they are much easier to take down than put up! Currently psyching myself up for the door frames!!
Framed? be careful, sure to be a fit up! (or I’ve been watching too many 70s cop shows).
I wish someone would fit them up!
