...thanks Kdawg, did make some progress this weekend but not as much as I wanted. Picked up my roof but every single screw and bolt place in Toronto is closed on Saturdays, who knew??? I refuse to pay $1.79 for 2 rubber washers at Lowe's, especially when I need several hundred. Ughh, another delay, that's ok, I have lots of time........NOT!!!!!!!

...finally got the roof up. Dealing with brutal winds and rain/sleet I can't say this was an easy one! That's ok, only a door and a couple of windows left and then it's just cosmetic stuff. Short days and even shorter weekends this time of year are really delaying my progress. Thanks for looking.
Hi AV - I dream of one day having a greenhouse. Being much less handy than you, I will probably have to pay for someone to build me one. Of course there is the small matter of finding the money... Back in reality, that thing is coming along! Very interesting design. I'm excited to see the final result! Keep up the great work, and the updates when you can.

...thanks for the compliments guys. Door and windows are in! Next pics should show some advanced progress. Must figure out the details of my suspended rolling floor platform for the Observatorium. Cheers!

...here is what I've got so far. Time, or lack of it is my worst enemy. There is no way I will finish in 2016
...window surrounds and then the final finish, most of which is already in my basement. Weather has turned here, finally bringing all my outside plants inside. Quite possible I waited too long, as most were frozen solid. Winter is here. Cheerio!

...thanks for your interest Dany. I have only put up a skeleton clock in the east facing gable (left of the door) since the last pics. Too busy bringing plants out from dormancy! I have a hell of a time posting pics here but I will try again when there is something to post. Cheers!
