Progress Inside the Greenhouse Garden Shed

While earlier in the week brought progress to the outside of the greenhouse garden shed this weekend brought some progress to the inside. I had already insulated parts of the shed where there is no glass but I needed to cover the insulation. Fortunately there is plenty of scrap plywood laying around the shed from […]

Greenhouse Garden Shed with a Secret Back Door

One of the tasks I accomplished last week on the greenhouse garden shed was to complete most of the siding on the backside. It was a complicated task due to many little cuts and some creative problem solving that was involved. One of the issues was with the “secret door.” I wanted the backdoor where […]

Greenroof Overhang for the Front Door

I’ve been fascinated (as have many people lately) with the green roofs that are quickly become very popular. Originally when I wanted to build my shed I wanted to cover the all of the non-transparent roof surfaces with plants. I realized that to build a greenroof over the whole structure would be both time and […]

How I’ll Use My Greenhouse

I’ve been thinking about how I’m going to use my greenhouse lately. There’s just enough complete on the greenhouse construction to tantalize my imagination and since people use greenhouse in so many ways that the options are virtually limitless. I don’t grow orchids or many tropical plants which means the greenhouse won’t be used for […]

Winter Around The Greenhouse Shed

The recent snowstorm here in Tennessee has given us some very nice images.  I showed some of the images from some ornamental grasses and other plants a couple days ago but here are a few from around my still incomplete greenhouse shed project. The trees behind the greenhouse are covered in ice making them appear […]

It’s been difficult to deal with the cold temperatures and find suitable days to work but that’s the challenge of working on an outdoor project in the winter. Lately we’ve been focusing on applying siding to the solid areas […]

Chilly Days and Things to Do

There’s not much happening on the greenhouse right now – it’s too cold! I walked out this afternoon to see if I could add some weather stripping to the front windows but it was too cold to add them as it needed to be higher than 40 degrees, or so said the packaging. This time […]

Working on the Front Door

Before Christmas we managed one more work day on the greenhouse shed. It was the last work day since the recent temperatures have been unbearably cold for working. It’s not predicted to be above freezing at all in the forecast. Snow is even being mentioned but I’ll believe it when I see it! We managed […]

From the Beginning Until Now

I thought it might be interesting to look back at my greenhouse shed project from where it began to its current and still incomplete state. I have a lot more to do to get it ready for holding equipment, gardening supplies, and (of course) the plants! I put together a slideshow to share the greenhouse […]
