Re: Winter Cover

Sitting room is pretty much done- except for cleanup! Because of the decking, I went with 1" foam mats for the floor. Keeps it nice and toasty, and the fish seen to enjoy their winter treats!

Re: Winter Cover

Dang!! Pretty much a double dang...this has to be put up every year, and taken down. The nice thing is that it should come down in 2-3 days. Each of the side panels is attached by about 10 screws (a couple per flange and one per baluster). The top panels are held in the rails by a couple bolts. Dis...

Re: Winter Cover

Of course, the most important critics have been keenly observing (sorry for the glare!), and will be enjoying a few more frequent feedings thanks to the easier access!

Re: Winter Cover

In these pictures you can see that I used the larger unistrut (green) for the base of the frame and for the boxes around the showers. I used the smaller unistrut (silver) for the rest of the framing. The third picture gives an idea of the view that we will have once the greenhouse is completed (by t...

Re: Winter Cover

The frame is connected to rollers which need to sit flat in the unistrut to prevent binding (third picture). Since the top is angled, I used hinges to keep the brackets attached to the rollers vertical (second picture, rotated 90 degrees unfortunately). The angle was such that the balusters can be a...

Re: Winter Cover

So, a little more of the construction details... The panels are joined using H-profile flange as seen in the first picture. They blend in well as seen in the second picture. The corners are joined with an R-profile flange. Where three corners come together a small gap is formed. The clear outdoor Go...

Re: Winter Cover

I constructed boxes around the showers and the panels are pushed against the shower boxes with the pipe insulation providing the barrier. I also purchased a used greenhouse which has plenty of room for a couple of chairs. The last row of panels was elevated to connect the greenhouse. In the next few...
