Looking good,
S.B I'm pre drilling all my holes, and making the holes 1/8" larger than the screw.
Cheers

Finally got a day last week when the wind wasn't blustering quite so hard (I now know why they decided to put a wind farm out here ...), so I got the polycarb sheets cut and in place and screwed down.  Now I can work on the inside putting in the insulation and building the plenum with circulation fans. 

By the way, Tree Dan, I tried just driving the screws through the polycarb sheets, and it seemed to work great.  Appears I have a good tight seal ...

 

 

Although we had about 1/2" of rain yesterday, I anticipate we'll be planting by Wednesday, which will put a 2- to 3-week hold on the kiln build ...
