I wish I could get my woodworking to do that. So, is that materials or materials and labor?

The Labor has been paid for in the pride and joy of doing good work and the sense of making something beautiful. The materials are paying for themselves with the fruits of this harvest. :)

Congratulations on your harvest! Do you have any pictures of your greenhouse? I looked through your projects for your greenhouse. If I missed it, please tell me where to look. I really want a greenhouse but most of my land is sloped and I haven’t found a great place to put it. What is your average annual snowfall? What is a typical snow load where you are? Do you heat it with anything other than the sun? If you have time, please share your journey building your greenhouse.

Hey RFG…My DH (zuki) built the greenhouse: http://gardentenders.com/members/Zuki/blog/935

Here in NL our average snowfall is 130 inches/year of heavy wet snow. We have a small fan heater but Have only used it on a timer two nights thus far.

I hope you enjoy DH’s greenhouse blog. Check out the entire series by following his links at the top.

Zuki and XO, your greenhouse is so neat and attractrive, it wouldn’t have to ‘produce’ to pay for itself for me. I just how it looks and that would be enough for me- – - – it really is a bonus that you are already getting produce from it.
