Moving the dirt
Thanks to Anna for taking these awesome pictures of the dirt moving process.
Sometimes you need the use of a tracker to get the work done.
Time to add some fresh garden mulch to this dry clay.
Now that the garden mulch is in place, it's time for dinner.
Steel end walls
The instructions that came with our kit have been slightly difficult to follow. There have been a number of calls to Oregon Valley Greenhouse today asking for clarification on just how to install these steel end walls. In the instructions It says to use a string line to help line up the holes for the four pipe that are the main support for the end wall. However, after speaking with a very helpful gentleman with Oregon Valley (again, great customer service) he simply said to not worry about the string line, "it doesn't work" but to simply plumb the supports to the bows and all will be great. So that's what we did.
He also told us that the concrete for these pipe won't be added until we have fully assembled the wall (it doesn't mention this in the directions anywhere). Oh, and we attached the hip boards before starting the end wall.
Here is the completed end wall with the horizontal pipe leveled and in place. This was much easier (and less materials) than our other four hoop houses.
The doors have plenty of clearance and swing nicely! Now to do the other end.
