    Default Our shade house in the making

    This is a 20'x20' but we are going to actually add another 10' so it will be a 20'x30'. We just hired somebody to do the whole thing because we could not find all the pipe connectors that we need in one place. We are using a 75-80% shade net. The guy building it could not find a 20'x20' shade net in 1 pc. so he had to used 2 different sizes.

    I will keep you guys posted.

    Boy, it looks like you can only grow very short orchids under that shade house.
    Just kidding - please do keep us up to date on the progress, what fun to watch your growing area develop.

    Gorgeous, and how much fun you are going to have getting it set up. Are you in an area where you will be able to leave your plants out all year or for how long?

    That looks awesome!!!

    Did you stake that to the ground somehow? I'm saving up for a shade structure, but mine is going to be tiny--- 10 feet x 6 feet.

    Your orchids are going to be sooooooooooo happy!!

    Wow. Looking great! Will you have shade cloth on the sides as well?
