while i've been busy with the garden work staal has continued work on the greenhouse. he's been putting to practice his ideas for installing the wall glazing---and he's having great results.
we've had plans to build a greenhouse for quite a while and sometime last year---or was it earlier this year (i forget now exactly when)?---we stopped by the glass company in mariposa and bought a bunch of used glass that had been taken out of discarded sliding doors. our intent was to use them to glaze the greenhouse and staal has been working out various ideas on how to do that---here's what he settled on...
he's been removing the studs from the existing framing, cutting channels in them to accept the glass, reinstalling them at the proper spacing (along with top and bottom channel framing), laying down a bed of silicone caulk in the channels and then pressing the glass into it's new frame.
staal got the last panel installed on the north wall yesterday and today he started work on the east wall. he got one glass panel in on the southern end of the east wall and set up the framing for a door in the center of the wall.
it's looking good, love. you're amazing.
