My DREAM HOUSE
I always heard,"When I win the Lottery". Now I know someone actually did.
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!
Yes Bernie if I was to buy maybe 2 sheet a month :) I need about 11 sheets to reach around . Its about $30.a sheet here maybe if i find some slightly used , that would be nice :) .
I Can say this will never blow over :))) .
have a great day everyone & TY All
Susie, I am so excited for you! I cannot imagine what things you wil be growing now that you have a greenhouse. I want a greenhouse inside my house! LoL
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.
You're so lucky to have a wonderful & talented brother! Great job. It should give you hours of enjoyment.
Thank you all yes I Know I will love it Once I get My Brother 's Tools out of it :)))) Hehe
thank you it is a fun project hope to get back at it today .
have a great weekend .
can I borrow your brother when I build mine????...lol.. looks great! wishing you many happy hrs puttering in it
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".
How exciting for you! I love the GH, I'll bet he could start a business.
