More cold-weather construction


A fairly productive Saturday of building out the new seedling room in the freezing cold (-15°C/5°F), with Michael and Bob (he dropped by to help for the day). By sundown, we had about half of the framing done, slow going with the cold, and the joists in the ceiling to work around. The propane space heater I used to use for emergency greenhouse heat barely made a difference with all of the drafts around the old barn doors and windows.  This winter work is nowhere near as fun as rough carpentry in warm weather, but it felt good to get stuff done.  And we’re still on schedule—seedlings soon have to start!
