    Yes, my "sainted hubby" built it. It's actually 11x15 and right now I have 150 orchids living in it. Since it gets so cold here in NWFl. I have made bubblewrap shades that I drop down at night over the double pane windows. Besides the heater I also cover them all with a frost blanket at night and so far no deaths!

    I can't put them away, either. My dining room is full of photos of my family.

My orchids are so confused 80's during the day and fifty's at night.They still decide to bloom when its time, took this one outside for its picture.
