My husband built me a greenhouse/sunroom this fall!
I am so excited about it and I wanted to share it with Y'all.

This was the area he used between the house and the garage


He put a door going into my seed starting room from the soon to be greenhouse.

He then closed the area in with windows, a door, and covered it with courgated clear roofing.

Very Nice. You are a lucky girl. Now I need instructions on just how you got your husband to do that??? I bought mine a new boat motor last year and I still have all my windows for the greenhouse he was going to build me over 20 years ago. I must be doing something wrong

Thank You all so very much! I really am enjoying it!
My husband has tried so hard to give me a nice home here!
When we lost all to Katrina it was hard to imagine I would be happy anywhere but back on the beach. My husband and I both had a dream of retiring on the beach.
Well God has so Blessed us...we now have a beautiful home that we completely did ourselves (took 3 years) and a acre and half pond ( no 30'surge here).
And now my husband has Blessed me with a wonderful aid to my obsession!!

I hope I dont bore y'all I Love sharing pictures! And there are many more to come!!!!

PS....no trades on the husband...sorry!
;)hmmm... for rent???... we are really slow right now...if Iasked him about renting him out...he might just take you up on it!

Treva all of mine are dead now that we started from seeds last year. Think I gave them too much care. Guess they aren't my cup of tea.

Treva, I love Dessert Roses!! I have a few thanks to a very generous member who shared seeds and one who sent me a baby.
They grow so slow but they're worth the wait.
