Even with several snags along the way, all of the walls were erected in a mere 5 hours. That included a couple of breaks to go and get supplies and to partake of refreshments and dinner.

The end rafters were also mounted. At the end of the day, I couldn't help but bring out one of my new shelving units and sit a couple of plants on it in the greenhouse. I just wanted to get a feel for how much space the shelves would take up in the greenhouse. It's very exciting.

I'm sure that the finishing touches will take a while, but I am very encouraged to see how quickly it has gone up so far. Soon we will be placing the door and adding the polycarbonate. Stay tuned!
