Sometime ago we spoke about an attached glue-lam greenhouse and what they are all about and how to go about building a greenhouse. As time permits, please allow me to update you on my latest and recently completed project.
Attached Greenhouse Possibilities
I must say, the greenhouse looks great and the owners couldn’t be any happier with the end result. I just went to visit the owners yesterday and there they were getting their seedlings ready for spring Their seedlings were already sprouting out and many looked real strong and healthy, and it’s only February 28th 2012.
Well, I can only imagine what kind of harvest they’ll have
A good one no doubt!
So let me ask you, have you started your greenhouse project? What are you waiting for? Are you waiting for cucumbers to sell for $ 1-2.00 each or a head of Romaine lettuce to sell for $ 3-4.00 bucks a bunch ? Right now its $ 1.25 or so It’s hard to imagine that veggies can continue to be more expensive as time goes on…
One thing is for sure, it appears that higher prices are certainly comin…
I realize it’s a money thing and rightly so, who in the world wants to get in debt over a greenhouse, whether its a free standing or home attached ! most of us don’t. Sadly we always rationalize our way out of it. Many of us can build a DIY greenhouse on our own, it really isn’t that hard. I receive many emails from folks asking, how to build a greenhouse or a sunroom or they want information on where to buy polycarbonate sheathing, glass, plant benches. The list is endless and so are the requests
Here are 3 elements that will help.
- home attached greenhouse plans
- determination to plant greenhouse seeds and
- a little greenhouse money!
Everyone has these elements somewhere tucked in a back burner, what we have to do now is unleash the Greenhouse Kraken that looms beneath the surface of our imagination and desire.
Sounds medieval, I know, but how did you ever come to the decision that you wanted a house for your castle, or a piece of land, or a mountain cabin. All these things began with a dream, a notion that someday I’m gonna have me a greenhouse. If I don’t do it myself, I’m gonna find someone who can do this for me at a reasonable price. Right on!
Attached Greenhouse variations
That’s how it begins, then the next thing you know you’ll be starting your very own greenhouse seedlings in February too. Building an attached greenhouse will give you the benefit of growing throughout the year. Home attached greenhouse gardening is fun and rewarding. It’s a step towards self sufficiency, eating healthy and free of radical preservative sprays and pesticides that are out of our control. It’s the biggest plus one can attribute to owning a greenhouse.
There are many variations of greenhouses, besides an attached greenhouse, there are lean-to greenhouses, freestanding greenhouses; geodesic dome greenhouse, solar greenhouses, and a slew of greenhouse kits and only you can determine the type that best fits your needs and perhaps this site can help you determine that.
If and when you decide to embark on your greenhouse plan always look around to see what type you would like.
Home Attached Greenhouse Designs
As far as greenhouse designs go, the Internet probably offers the greatest variety to look from; there are literally thousands of sites offering all types of designs and pictures to choose from. If your set on a home attached style this is probably the cheapest way to go. So set your sites on one then give me a call and let’s see if we can make that dream come true. If you’re local I can show one or two that I have provided, and built. Seeing a home attached greenhouse up close is always more revealing as well as more informative.
