    I want mine to be a deep foundation. Gonna need steps to walk down into the GH.
    Will need a backhoe to dig that deep.

    So on Friday 10-19 I got to buy some supplies for my new project. To start I bought 50 blocks and 50- 2 x 4's.


    Can't forget the 16 foot 2x4 for the peek either. See it hanging on side?

    Ended up looking like this till Sunday night.


    I got off Sunday night grabbed a bite and sat with wifey a bit then decided to get started. Why not right? I do most of my work with plants a night. So I got started and after getting everything setup it was 2200.

    So I get underway. First wall gets finished.


    Woooo taller than I imagined. Wifey said go with it so I did.


    Shortly later the second wall gets finished.


    Something tells me I will need a taller ladder to finish. Lol

    And the third wall gets finished.

    Going up!!



    Last wall for tonight.





    So at about 0100 in the morning I finished with the wall frame!!!!

    You are doing a great job ( so inspired to work at night, by floodlight!), but I worry that once you get a roof on it, you won't be able to reach the rafters at all. Those walls look taller than 6 foot, and by the time you have a peaked roof up, it will be like fifteen feet tall at the ridge! Have you considered that?

    Yes I did. I've been kicking myself. No I won't be able to reach the ridge. I was contemplating that all last night. My last GH I made too short and had no headroom. This one looks too tall. If I do the 45 angles like I originally planned yes it will be 14' at the peak. Was thinking chains for hang bars. The only other thing I was thinking about was heating. I want head room for plants to vine and so I'm not bonking head on pots. Idk this is where I kick myself for not going down in size to 6' walls then if I did will I want the extra headroom of 8' walls. Was trying to be frugal with supplies. And not do many cuts.

    BTW I love my flood lights. They get used often.
