New Greenhouse

HUBBY GOT ME A GREENHOUSE FOR CHRISTMAS!!!

We have just in the last three weeks been able to get out and start putting it together. Eddie had to dig out a 12 x 16 foot area to place it in. My son-in-law poured the footers to mount it on.

We’re placing the greenhouse where the tractor is sitting in this photo because it’s at the end of the garden and not shaded by any trees. Eddie is digging out the area with his new Kioti tractor.

This is the footer my son-in-law framed, poured cement and filled with crusher run. Thank you, Joel and Eddie!!

It took a month for us to be able to even begin the building of the greenhouse due to the frigid winds and cold rains. Three weeks ago my son, Shawn and daughter, Heather came up on a beautiful Sunday and helped us start the constructions. You have never in your life seen so many parts and pieces in one box !!

This is just the top part of the contraption!!!
The beginning and 6.5 hours later.

Friday was beautiful and Eddie and I decided we should have a run at it and we got the pitched roof frame on.

The next steps were going to take help from our engineering expert, Shawn.

The kids came to the farm around 11:00 and we proceeded with adding the four vent windows in the top and the two sliding doors on the front.

I cannot put into words how excited I am about completing the next step and it’ll be done and ready for me to grow and grow and grow all of those beautiful plants, food and flowers.

The last step is putting all the panels in and Eddie and I can do that on our own. He wants to do some reinforcing inside and out due to the winds we have here on the farm. There will be four 4×4 posts attached to the interior corners in the floor and the corner framing. He also wants to add some support on the walls inside and out for more sturdy support.

I’m going to have so much fun this summer!!!
