Frank, he will be 3 in March, the "new pup" will be 2 in February. Von has moved up to a Deere, she has two summers on it and likes it a lot.

Yen, thanks buddy hope all is good with you in Nipomo.
John

Holy Smokes John, those are BIG!  And tons of work to get up, but very nicely done.  Makes my 6x10 look like a closet  ;D

I see where you attached a piece of wood on the ext. frame, about 3' up.  So how are your interior shelves attached to that?  Did you put the plastic over the wood?...seems like it'd rip?

Hi Chris, the baseboard is level, the ground the left hand poly house drops about 20" over 48'. The frame is attached to the baseboard with bolts through holes drilled at the factory for baseboard attachment, so the plastic attaches to the metal plastic attachment anchors at the same point, so no problem with the plastic.

I see John, makes sense.  Maybe when you can get a chance, you can post a pic of the shelving inside? 
I used concrete blocks and milk crates (both moveable and storagable) to suspend my shelving.  Just wondering what you did. 

We've not had much severe cold or snow here yet either.  But more than one day with very strong winds and gusts.  I'm so glad I put those internal tie downs!  lol

John,

I am ready but Mother Nature does not seem to be co-operating. Karen & I just got back from a stroll through the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Temperature at my house is 62 degrees outside! We are to be warmer than normal through the weekend. My quince are budded and swelling. If it does not cool down they will bloom in January! Crazy!!!

For those of you who are wondering the dog's name is Oliver but my son has begun to call him Shohin.
