DIY [#32] ~ Mini Greenhouse–Work Continues… 10/31

Here is what I did today.

Yesterday, I said:

Here’s the plan: 1) Finish the two side panels by adding two 2-foot pieces of plywood at the bottom of both sides. 2) Cut about 4 polygons in the panels to see in and allow light in. 3) Build two triangle frames–front and back. 4) Paint 5) Cover the front and back panels with Twinwall Polycarbonate. Each panel can be removed

I completed items 1 & 3. I expect cut holes and to paint tomorrow–Items 2 & 4. Twinwall Polycarbonate is too expensive to crate and ship. I am looking for alternatives. I especiially like how I positioned the front and back triangles and the fitting of the side panels–like gloves.

DIY [#32] ~ Repurposed DIY Firewood Rack on Wheels–Now, a cold weather frame, 10/29

…for a warming tent for Mercedes–my “outdoor” avocado

Three years and 8 months ago, I built this firewood rack. A few days ago, I moved about 1/2 cord of wood to compost bins I built January 2012 and decided yesterday to repurpose the empty rack.

Will it help me keep the avocado alive this winter? I will probably make removable side panels using the tarpaulin or see-through plastic. Stay tuned…
