      So the greenhouse is built and now has a roof and by the end of the weekend, all the polycarb panels will be fitted and it will be water tight.

              Looking good :dbgrtmb:

              ... though if you do not mind us mentioning, as we know some other folk who missed it, if you do not seal the opened ends of the twin walled polycarb with the correct bottom breather and top closure tapes then you can get lots of condensation , bugs and algae growth inside them.
