Lots of work from the Monday TC group today:
We brushed it all down and dried it, got the canvas sides and roof on, and shovelled out most of the snow from the floor.
And the nursery IS completely closed from 2pm on Friday until Tues 4 January - so there will not be any chance to do anything then. But at least we don't need to worry about the bad weather damaging the wooden frame any more, nor the canvas going mouldy - and all the other parts are safely stored in the dry.
On Thursday afternoon we're going to shovel out the rest of the snow, get the fire in there, light it, and warm it all through (1pm if anybody wants to come).
After the holidays, the canvas will need taking off, and the whole lot (cotton liner, felt walls and roof, then canvas walls and roof) putting back on in their final place - but we're getting the hang of it now, so it shouldn't take too long!
Happy Christmas, all
