    Hehehe. I dont have enough orchids yet to require additional space
    The greenhouse and shadehouse are at about 25% capacity so my daughter will have her play structure for quite a few years before I start claiming it for the orchids lol.

    I think 'outhouse' meant an outdoor structure... like a shed, perhaps?

    It is very space age -- if someone didn't know they really would wonder what on earth you have in the backyard. Inside, however, looks wonderful and the plants seem very happy with their mother ship. You do however have some serious shopping to do -- good luck with 4th quarter orchid budget negotiations.

    Thanks for your tips on the shading% and coefficient as well.

    Ooh! Judi, that's gorgeous!!! (Your outbuilding and greenhouse, both.)

    That's what I want for a greenhouse when I finally buy a real house! Only, how do you keep it warm in the winter or cooled in the summer? (Maybe that's not as big of an issue in your part of England?)
