    Absolutely! lol Actually, we are very lucky to know a general contractor...he's the one that built the house we bought last year. He's looking for side work and when we mentioned I was ordering a greenhouse kit he asked if he could build it for the experience. He and his guys did such a great job I made up some posters to put around town for him. They even washed the windows inside and out!
    I really appreciate everyones comments...I am so excited i've been having trouble sleeping lately. lol I'm like a ten year old on Christmas day. The timing on this shopping trip with Cathy is perfect! I may need to take a couple boxes along...and as a few have pointed out lately; the garage being next to the greenhouse I can just carry the new plants right in to the shelves.

    That looks awesome Connie.
    Have you set up drain paths for the water? or will they just drain through the pavers?

    Very handsome! Its all shinny and new. I understand you feeling like a kid at Christmas. I would to! Although we can't put this greenhouse easily under a Christmas tree (a little early yet anyway), we could put a big ribbon and bow on it. When your done with him please send your contractor my way. This little town I am in can always use a good one. AL

    When I took the shelf of Vanda's and other warm growers in I watered them and the water just went straight down through the pavers. My husband was afraid it would run under the walls and out...but it didn't go anywhere but down.

    Me, too.

    Connie, that looks fantastic. Your orchids will love the new 'home'. Cannot wait to see more blooming. Perfect timing to have more space for your trip with Cathy.

    Finally; a few pictures of the greenhouse with shelves full of plants. I've been off my feet with the flu, so my husband filled in for me and got the shade cloth put up. We have cold weather coming for a few nights so it was time to get busy. I'd have rather have taken a nap, but I got busy instead and hustled the orchids into their new winter home.
