Sealed

November 8, 2011

Actually I should say sealed but without a proper door.

For the last couple of I’ve postponed the door’s engineering/installation and instead have been racing the clock to have the structure’s “skin” effectively sealed ahead of the first freeze of the season. The lows are forecast @ 28 and then 27 Thursday and Friday; I believe the system as currently set up will work fine.

Once I got the back up tonight I tacked the skin down to the framed “foundation” along the bottom perimeter. To do this I used “singles” of lattice sold for repair and trimming of normal pressure treated lattice panels. The plastic is reinforced at the points where the screws secure the strips with squares of duct tape.

I took the shots below then watered the beds using the box inside the structure; the back garbage can is filled with water to act as a makeshift heat sink for now.

That’s all for now. đŸ˜‰

    Wow, that looks awesome.

    By singles of lattice, do you mean just the strips of wood that a lattice is made of, or something different? Any chance you can get a pic of it?

      Yeah- the single strips. Home depot has bundles of them back in the same aisle as the lattice.

    Definitely worth it…shop bought never taste as good…so expensive too. Love the Poodle!
