The Roof

The roof needs to slope to cope with the British weather (rain!). I've decided to go with a ridge roof so that the water is not all shed on one side.



Fortunately, I inherited a lot of strips of galvanized steel in the green house when I bought the house! One has been used to weather-proof the gap in the marine ply roof.


Just need to melt the wax into the top-bars, then coat the exterior with bee wax and linseed oil, then get some bees!
