Forgot to post some other news (sort of) ... relating to this project...

Although I won't be responsible for supply and installation....

Peter & Divonne Holmes-A-Court are going further down the sustainability path...

With the erection of a 7.6kw solar & 2.4kw wind off grid system.... which has been sized to make their entire property self sufficient...

Yeah, I had suggested that we could mount a couple of panels and/or a wind genie on the shed... as part of a battery backup system...

Guess they just thought they'd upscale things a bit... :mrgreen:

The "pour" that was supposed to happen last Tuesday... didn't happen...

Four phone calls.. and promise of return calls... didn't happen...

Called Monday (yesterday) with a degree of irritation... finally got a reply..."oh, I thought we were poring this Tuesday"...

Went up to the site early this morning to make sure everything was in place....

About 11:00... I stormed into the head office of the shed supplier... and dummy spat...

14:00... the concretor turned up on site... and confirmed that he would pour the slab and greenhouse footing on Friday... said today was the first he'd heard anything from "head office"...

Oh... and the shed itself WILL be delivered on Monday... or so they say... :roll:

In the mean time... Ive been digging 24 1mtr footings for the greenhouse...

Hired a post hole digger that was about as much use as a brown paper bag full of cold water...

Ended up with a hand held post digger... and spud bar.... darn the clay up that way is more like granite...

Of course, I forgot to take up the clamps, wood and props the other day... to hold the posts in place for the pour..

Had to use the greenhouse kit pieces to acheive the required result... :mrgreen:
