I had an area of my backyard that was pretty much useless, it's 5' wide by 24' long on th south side of the house, I needed a place to winter some outdoor tropical plants. Hopefully I can make some pics work. Here goes.
Built my own greenhouse
Very clever design. Please report back on how well it does, as others may be inspired by your work. I HOPE to pull the plastic on our hoophouses this evening, as cooler weather is headed to NW GA.
Very nice, that brick wall should be good for holding heat. How are you ventilating if you get a warm sunny day?
That is great, sounds like you have everything covered.
lovely, a little piece of the tropics. I would be happy in there, too.
Hi, jmoffatt and everyone.
I have just moved into a home in Western Washington where I will be building a greenhouse similar to yours. I am torn as to how to build it as
I do have a gate on one end of the space. There is an existing so-called green house there now but it actually served as a dog run for the previous owners; it will be removed.
My initial plan was to use the same footprint of the dog house but to build up for more sun space. Now I think I will attach the new structure to the house.
It is great viewing your space. It does show what can be done with a long narrow space. I will try to get some pictures and include them soon.
Thanks for the opportunity to think out-loud, well not out-loud but, in a forum with new friends. This is what I love about Dave's Garden.
the plants have thrived all winter, it's about time to bring them back out, they are a lot bigger than when I put them in and I've got tomatoes and peppers growing along with various herbs.
bravo! my geraniums bloomed all winter, a neighbor was so jealous.
I love that and the south side of my house is about the same way. I have been trying to think of a way to utilize it as a green house and your way looks perfect! Just some questions though... How did you attach the PVC to the house and the fence and how do you attach the plastic to the PVC? Thank you for the inspiration!
