I always heard,"When I win the Lottery". Now I know someone actually did.
Nice job!
We put the fiberglass on our original greenhouse. It turned yellow but lasted about 15 years. The way you have yours built, you could add it to the sides, too.

Have a Great Day!

It's cute as a button! Can't wait to see it full and lush and green and and and...
Can you hang baskets in it too? Looks like you accounted for that idea with the metal rod and eye-screws.

So glad you posted, it is just so nice.

Suggestion, I had a small greenhouse years and years ago, and DH hung a metal pipe the distance of the greenhouse for me to hang pots from. I ended up with two pipes since it was wide enought and gave me an amazing amount of plant hanging space.

Looks great Susie, they will love it. I had geese who stayed in our dog pen and laid eggs in the igloo dog house...dog never used it so the geese became real "squaters".
