    Or a little quiet me time -- without the kids. Although I'm also looking forward to having a little helper as well. I'll just have to teach her now to water and what not to touch.

    I will definitely post photos. I would post the plans, but they are in some architect software that the forum doesn't support and I couldn't figure out how to load a PDF. We have the lot under contract and are supposed to close at the end of the month, then the building will begin in earnest. I anticipate that the greenhouse will actually be finished before the house as it won't have all of the details--paint, carpet, crown molding etc etc that seems to take forever in a house.

    Piper, it may well be like your grandmother's greenhouse. I tend to be a bit of an old soul myself and have dreamed of a georgian style greenhouse forever! (So that is what this will be. ) I can't imagine anything better--gorgeous greenhouse full or orchids! Heaven!

    Sorry for the excited rambling -- as you can probably tell, I am more than a little excited.

    You actually made me feel a little guilty when you originally said "quiet time with the kids" -- I thought well, I guess I could share my greenhouse. I was embarrassed that my big plan was a little me time, without my darling actual kid. But now I see that we are of like mind -- orkids. Whew, I feel a little relieved, perhaps I am not the only one who thinks a little time alone in the greenhouse would be good for the soul.
