We did think when we built the polyhouse last year that a position close to the house would be the best place for it to go.
We had expected that the concrete underneath and the bulk of the house would provide enough thermal mass to provide some heat over the course of the cold Canberra winter nights.
What we forgot was that the sun didn’t actually hit the polyhouse until mid-afternoon and even the, as you can see in the photo above, it only really hit one side of the structure. Oh well, at least the light weight construction meant that once we moved all the pots out and removed the concrete blocks holding it down it was simply a task of us picking the whole thing up and shifting it back exactly where we had made our original polytunnel! At least now we have restored our view of the garden minus a large expanse of plastic.
As they say, the more things change the more they remain the same!
