« Part 5: Piecing it together. Part 6 of Green House Project series no next part

Today was a beautiful day to get a little bit of sun and finish up the green house.
The metal around the top and on the sides went on smoothly. After that all the window edges were sealed and all the gaps filled.

The upper ends I used tyvec wrap type of material for wrapping houses. It should last about two to three years or until I figure out somthing more permanent.
I did not seal around the bottom as to allow water to leak out. This was a fun little green house to put together. I am already looking at an add on someday soon, we shall see.
The babies loved it inside the green house today….their first time seeing sun.
The grow boxes are built they are 3’X10’X21” deep there is one on each side. A work space/bench will be added at the end between the beds.
There is a few little things that I want to do but for the most part the exterior is complete.
Next the grow beds will be filled and we shall see how it goes.
Thanks for following along on this small but fun journey.
Happy gardening
God Bless

A great looking project Jim, the grow beds look large enough to hold a lot of seedlings your greenhouse should be able to produce an abundance of plants for you. You will have to keep us posted on how it performs and take a couple of snapshots of it in action.

Congratulations on a great build!
