That is really nice! What size is it...6' x 8'?
Did you cut the branches off the tree specifically for the greenhouse? You've been busy!Yep, both are 6x8. This one is on ye old hot tub slab!
That took a couple days to grind in a drainage path, install a French drain from there and run the electrical out there. I first dug a 4’ deep vertical drainage hole that wouldn’t drain due the glacial clay layer in that area.
I added temperature sensing control devices on the vent and louvers and these work great.
Sadly the really sturdy cool racks are back ordered until late September!
…and the rest of the story. The next one needs a bit of a foundation and likely a drain too. No slab for this one, inside the foundation will be a 4 - 5” layer of drain rock as it’s in a sunny area. I’m working out whether that alone will work to moderate the temperature. Or if I should also bury some sort of a heat sink…. Maybe 5 gal water jugs??…. or something to assist. Any ideas anyone?
Also its sited right on one of the garden areas, so I have to wait until September…. And the electrical conduit will need to run about 43’…right through the Fleet Admiral’s very most favorite plants….
Another fun project!
Ummm...no, not really. It's pretty packed when things are in leaf...and a severe storm is forecast.U could have extended the gazebo and fit the trees in there so you can enjoy them while sitting in the hot tub ..duh lol.
