Tent Arrives

Filed under: Building - Shed and Prep — tomlarkin @ 2:33 am

The tent came in tonight, all except the poles, which UPS says will arrive soon. The frame looks good – reasonably strong – but the fabric looks very lightwight. McLendons has big white plastic tarps that look heavier. I may need to put one over the tent to make it hold up that long. Maybe it will add some insulation value also.  One nice thing is that there are no cross-beams between the uprights so headroom will be better than I thought.  We’ve had record cold and snow so I haven’t been able to do any work on the platform, even though I stayed home yesterday because the streets were too dangerous drive on. They say it will be warmer and dry this weekend so I hope to get the deck completed and the tent erected.
