We expected a delivery today between 1 and 5.
Keith hurried to get things done this morning so he could be here.
At 11:30, look what pulled up, and nary a dog (all inside) barked.
My phone rang, and I was told "I'm at your gate".
I alerted Keith.
A huge box, 428 pounds... was manhandled off the truck and into our pickup by a pallet jack, and the driver and Keith.
I was told to stay away and be quiet, and for once, I took his advice! :-)
Within ten minutes, he was at the site in the garden, and unloading everything.
He had to open the box and unload all the pieces.
(Biggify and note buds on maple tree branches in picture!)
I went out to take pictures and set the treat bucket down for a minute... those are the panels leaning against the side of the henspa.
Someone was trying to get to the bread.
This gives you some idea of the waffle weave of the polycarbonate panels.
In the background are some 4 x 4 pieces laying on the ground... Keith says now that the greenhouse will be 8 x 17 feet, instead of 10 x 18. There is a reason for this... and we will also site it a little bit closer to the garden beds, instead of right next to the henspa. There is a reason for THAT, too... I'll find out what they are and report on them.
It's getting real! Unfortunately, except for Sunday, we are to have very cold weather next week, with a 70% chance of snow on Wednesday, so we will put off construction for a week.
Folly says: "What are you putting next to us, Mama?"
That's it for today from Calamity Acres!
