Building a Greenhouse: Chapter Two

The patio bricks we removed became the floor for the greenhouse.

Gary and I filled up the beds with dirt, compost and peat moss.  

The next weekend, after the "kit" arrived, a crew came up to help erect the metal structure.  It's a good thing that we have smart friends who know a little about putting up buildings because the instructions that came with the "kit" left a lot to be desired.  

That same weekend we had another snowstorm, making me glad again to be getting a greenhouse.

This is in May!

As you can see, though, the moisture turned everything green.

Once the metal structure is in place, the sides start to go up.

That is a very impressive looking greenhouse.

What a substantial structure. From the foundations it looked as if you were building a house. Snow in May makes it a necessity - I will stop complaining about our wet weather now that I see the growing conditions you have to contend with.

It's looking great in spite of some weather setbacks. Very nice work!
