Yes, my husband wanted to make sure they look good and are functional. He's a boiler maker by trade, so had lots of great ideas for frames.
He wants to expand even more - into vertical AP for the fence.

I'll be feeding the neighbourhood if we keep going at this rate - neighbours don't complain about the water running constantly though because they get free food too. ;)

So there's one on the balcony, then one at the side of the house with a huge pawpaw, then one around the back under a greenhouse cover? Plus the single one?

See, you should have posted this first - you might have avoided some of the commentary in your other thread. :D

Pic 2 first post, what is behind the corrugated wall? How much heat is passed back into that area?

Pic 3 first post - are they IBC GB's and FT? If so, what is that plant?

EDIT: OK, I did read the descriptions but missed the paw paw bit... my bad... :(

SO I am guessing they ARE IBC sized?

Pic 2 question...?

Nicely done... indeed...

And indeed... from your first post I thought you were just promoting "kits" for sale....

Didn't realise that you were just selling off an excess system.... :flower:

Hi, I realise posting a system for sale as my first post was an internet faux pas. My husband and I can be a bit to the point.

Pic 2 - The corrugated wall is our shed. Hubbie wanted to use the useless space (1.5m wide) to do something useful. System runs on a heat range of 14 min in winter to 45 max in summer.

Pic 3 - All our systems are made entirely of IBCs. he uses them for GB,FT and sumps. The fts are full IBC size

If the actual colour is pretty close to what is shown in the photo, what's the timber and the finish treatment in this pic?

This is what the system behind the shed looked like before growth. Posting so that you can see the size.



Bunson, the colour is close. It is raw kwila. It will grey with age if not oiled regularly,but it isn't a bad look either.

We actually have 6 pawpaws in that system but there is too much growth to actually take a photo where you could see that. This is why photographing at the start is so important :oops:

I hope this points out just how fanatical the hubbie is about AP (I am so proud). We will be starting some vertical ones on the fence soon enough.
