We'll keep you to that!! :LOL:

Plan 'B' is looking great already. Does this mean your little chaps will be able to stay outside for more of the year? We have poured the concrete footings for ours today... it's a start!

paula with the weather up here i can only expect 5 months tops outside a year.you have to remember i am closer to norway than i am to you lot down their.i have sheets of king span to put in their but you have to watch what i am doing as it works both ways it can keep the heat in but also it will keep the cold in to when their is no heat on if you know what i mean it takes a lot longer to warm up!!!!!

Bruce that was a shame after the work you put into the greenhouse. Its right windy up your way. A mate of mine in Stirling had his greenhouse blown away not long ago as well. It does happen.

I'm sure you would find some useful plans on the internet for your roof, to get some ideas.

Hi Bruce - I have just used Cuprinol Shades which states being eco friendly and safe for pets. It comes in Black - well almost black, I have just used it on my enclosure to match the other timber in the garden.
