    Gin that looks great. Are you going to heat / cool it seperately? I can't tell if it's open to the main greenhouse or not.

    Happy happy vandas!

    Thumbs up Outstanding!

    Wow, Gin....it's almost done, ready to move in! I'll start packing now.

    Are you planning on using polyply on the roof? I also like the step down for the extra head room....nice work, kiddo!!!

    Hi all , It has poly on the roof , the rest is like the main part ,glass panes from show cases a friend gave us , the front window is new and opens , we do all the building , plans ect . right now there is a sliding patio door seperating the addition from the main part it will come out and be heated and cooled from the main part , the addition roof is fairly flat and stepped down from the main roof that does not face the right direction .A mistake , it could be used for a sunroom if we sold the place . HB. did the drawings , I ran the power screw driver . he measures , saws , I can't cut straight lol . Also a friend helped with the heavy stuff .
    Tim one of the easier ways to build an attatched to the house is with the sliding patio doors on 3 sides or at least 2 , built so it can be used as a sunroom if you sold out . Thanks for looking Gin
