Started building a green house. Levelled off the ground and built the front window frame/wall. The lumber I got from Kent was disgusting but will be good enough for this application. I only went to Kent because they had the fibreglass clear sheets that I am going to use for the roof.

This morning I made the window frame. It was so cold and snowy that I built the wood frame inside the garage. Here in east coast Canada we are having colder weather than usual this spring.

The lumber here is expensive and poor quality so I gathered the paster spruce off the farm and milling it with my power saw mill. I used by Kubota tractor to level the land and snig the logs to the landing where I mill them up. Here is video of what I have completed so far.

On my 8 week forced Covid 19 vacation, I am nearly done with my wife's ambitious greenhouse build. We are building free standing 10x16 timber frame greenhouse with TUFTEX panels. https://tuftexpanel.com/products/polycarb-tuftex-panels.shtml

We have all of the walls built, rafters, and purlins, a sliding window, and a storm door. We have painted the entire structure, and it is bolted down to 8 level foundation filled holes. We have to find a clam day to mount all of the plastic panles, and we will be mostly done. https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-GreenHouse-Build-Solid-Structure/

That is a nice size greenhouse. Those Tuftex panels should be awesome.
