On Thursday Mr Chiots and I headed over to my parents house to help my mom & dad put together my mom’s new sun shed. My mom spent quite a while trying to decide what kind of greenhouse to buy and finally settled on a sun shed from cedarshed.com. It’s half greenhouse half shed. It’s made out of cedar, complete with a partial cedar shake roof.
My dad spent a few weeks putting in a gravel pad to install it on while at it he installed a rain barrel overflow for future rain barrel installation on the greenhouse. We helped them raise the shed and put most of it together, except for the polycarbonate panels. It’s a 12×12 shed with about 70% of the roof being clear.
It’s quite a nice little greenhouse. You’ll be seeing more of it as we use it this coming spring for seedlings and garden plants. I’ve always wanted a greenhouse, although I think I would lean more towards a traditional glasshouse type greenhouse (here’s a gallery of a few I made on Flickr). If I keep saving my pennies I may have one in a couple years.
Do you have a greenhouse? Have you always wanted a greenhouse in your garden?Filed under Miscellaneous | Comments (16)
