    Solar Powered Fan to aid ventilation?

    A target of 85% RH is ideal for temps between 77F and 90F. You`ll find an overhead misting system very useful on hot days.

    Condensation will persist from day today, its part of our damp climate. Dampness can be more of a killer than the actual cold.You can only do your best and ventilate when ever you get the chance.

    Time for a tunnel

    stainless bolts would be best but could cost you more than the tunnel. If you coat zinc bolts/hardware with a thin layer of vaseline it`ll keep the moisture off and they wont rust as fast.

    Because I have a fence on 2 sides, I turned the cover in under the frame and buried it. As a reserve I have 3 webbed straps anchored to the ground 18" down, not pulled tight just laid over. Cover was pulled tight when I put the door way in and it is sideways to the wind, no problems yet touch wood.
