Greenhouse, Part One

Lovely cool weather arrived last.  Yesterday was ridiculously hot and humid..not September weather at all.  But last night a cold front moved in bringing rain and much cooler temperatures.  And today was just perfect.  Low humidity, sunshine and temperatures in the 70s.  Nice.

A good day to work on the greenhouse.  A few days ago, when it was cool, I leveled the area, but  Beatrix  got out and unleveled it.  Dirt and straw were everywhere.  So today I  started over..leveling with pea gravel and adding a bit of decorative stone.  Time to start the assembly.

IMG_2825 Box no. 1 opened.

IMG_2824Box n0. 2.  Lots of little parts.  This is going to be interesting.

IMG_2826Bill actually reads directions.  Well, the directions don’t actually have words…just pictures.  But the pieces are numbered so it should go smoothly.

After leveling with pea gravel and decorative stone, we got the frame together.

IMG_2836I think it is quite adorable.  Lots of pieces left….lots to do.  I am very excited about it and think it will be wonderful when it is done.  Bill, who can be bit of an Eeyore , thinks it will get trickier as we go along.

IMG_2833The girls  are checking out what we are doing…and scratching and pecking.  They will enjoy the greenhouse in January when it is 10F..but they don’t know that.


So this is as far as we got today.  Tomorrow is supposed to be another perfect day so I hope we get a bit more done.

Stay tuned for part two!

    I love it its just the perfect size.

  2. It looks perfect – especially for your girls in winter. But looking at that pile of bits stressed me out. I hope the instructions were clear!

      The instructions are interesting. No words, just pictures. All the parts are labeled with a number and that is how you know which piece they are talking about. So far it has been ok, but there is a lot left to do. We shall see. Fingers crossed for smooth sailing.☺️
