    Agri Polytunnels for housing/sheep/storage

    Basically are they any good? Anything to be aware of?
    Dad and I were looking at one.

    We've had a polytunnel for the last 20 odd years, no idea who made it originally though. They are great for sheep at lambing time and I guess they are probably great for rearing calves too. Ours was retired when the sheep went a few years back but it's still weatherproof and has many uses. We've changed the plastic sheet on it once (around 5 years ago now) and we've been told the secret to making the plastic last is to make sure it is tight. Sheeting in the summer helps as the plastic is warm then and so is slightly stretched, that means in the winter when the winds are strongest the plastic is a lot tighter.

    They are, I'm told after a while they also start to appear as permanent structures on maps and stuff...
