This week we were in the shop full time. Cutting, grinding, welding, and drilling. We set up an assembly system where parts were being cut, then passed off to be grinded, then drilled, then welded. With lots of great teamwork and our wonderful jig (no, not the dance), we were finally able to put together a full greenhouse frame. The new frame is solid, strong, and could probably also be a really good jungle gym.
We also explored other greenhouse options. With the concept of an XS, S, M, L, XL:
XS – Single sprout – the basic unit
S – Multiple sprout – greenhouse booths
M – Mobile sprout – a greenhouse on wheels
L – Freestanding sprout -sprouthouse components providing the frame for a larger greenhouse
XL – Supersize sprout – an even larger greenhouse made up of sprouthouse components
With one frame fully realized, we’re moving forward our goal of six frames. Next week we’re going to be looking into cladding and prepping the frames for powdercoating. Stay tuned!
