Colorhouse


...just think how much fun we'll have once we actually have plants in it! The last panel went in just as the raindrops started.

Oh, wow! Where did you get that? It fits perfectly!! You're awfully nice to your plants. :-) Soooo glad you guys could use the greenhouse. Now we need to get another!

Thanks for the encouragement! It tested our creative building skills figuring out how to incorporate the glass. From the inside, it is actually framed on all sides by the metal used as bracing. There was a pair of these at the huge youth workcamp trip garage sale and this one was still there on day two.

Next step is spray painting the shelving that will go under the stained glass and down part of each side. THe wind gusts are testing the greenhouse tonight, but also delaying my painting. The shelving is from the same sale! This greenhouse has a theme: I'm working with what has found me!

I've never seen that before, completely original and a wonderful idea for a greenhouse!

Beautiful. Congratulations on getting a greenhouse. You'll wonder how you managed without one.
