Greenhouse conversion explained as we go
I thought, if its ok with the moderators, I'd explain my aviary conversion step by step. The plan is to convert my unused slightly dilapidated 8' by 6' greenhouse.
The problem is the frame is highly toxic aluminium, but the plan is to put a steel frame inside the original frame and bolt the mesh to this. Leave 2 sides and the roof with the glass in and stick fablon this on the inside (and maybe the outside) incase glass gets broken to prevent it falling in on the birds. The trees above need cutting back as well!
The plan is to use scrubbed galvanised mesh. simply because I can't afford stainless steel mesh. It's ridiculously expensive, adds £700 to the costs.
I'm still pricing it up. and looking at materials.
Planning a 6' x 6' flight with a 2' x 2' enclosed box type area to protect against cold. It's 6' high at the apex and 4' at the side.
Should make a lovely aviary.
I've attached photo's of the disaster as it is now.
Today I've cleaned it out and will endeavour to take photo's and post tomorrow.
