The outer sheeting is on

On Friday the guys were able to get the sheeting on the polytunnel.  It looks great.  We still have the doors to be fitted and a final tidy-up, but the outer structure is nearly complete. Next up is the floor, electrics and irrigation, unfortunately hitting this cold spell is not very good for laying concrete, especially as it appears to be raining inside the polytunnel! We have a lot of condensation forming inside and so you get the occasional drip on your head. Fingers-crossed for a slightly warmer spell.
