    Smile Lean-To Greenhouse

    I'd thought we started early enough, but mother nature is making crazy weather early this year. So far things are looking good...the windows go in tomorrow and by this Sunday everything should be sealed tight and ready for plants. I like that the greenhouse is going off the garage, any really bad storms I can just roll the shelves into the garage and shut the big garage door. The final measurements ended up 12" 6' deep and 14" 9' wide. We had to have the pavers out back widened in a couple places first and the big round rutted spot out back is the mess our paver guys left us. That will be the project I start on right after the last orchid is stuffed into the greenhouse. Eventually this back yard won't have much grass left. I plan on putting a nice gazebo in the back corner and paths will go here and there with pretty flowers and decorative trees. When i'm done it will be filled with walking paths and areas to sit and enjoy the view. That may take awhile though...

    Looking good, Connie! My compliments on your foresight of making the greenhouse accessible via a large garage door. Very wise!

    Connie; This is a obviously well thought out greenhouse and your projects for the yard should make it look fantastic! My kind of 'ideal' backyard. AL

    That's a very NEAT GH. Love the design. It will look simply awesome when the plants come in.
