Yesterday was a nice warm winter day — 65 degrees.
Charlie worked on the foundation for the greenhouse.
The weed barrier ground cloth had been delivered in a 3-foot by 50-foot roll. And the redwood lumber arrived via UPS all the way from California. The package of wood weighed 84 pounds so the UPS driver helped Charlie carry it to the garden.
I cut the wood with our miter saw it so it would create a 6-foot square at the centerline of the 4 by 4 (actually 3-11/16″ square) posts. Two long posts were cut to 75-1/2″ and the shorter posts 75-1/2″ less 7-3/8″.
We were careful to allow the border around the outside and the border around the inside to be approximately equal.
The next step is to put the wood foundation in place and tie it down with rebar.
We’re waiting for another nice day to finish.
Have you started a project that takes more than one step? Are you stuck?
