Early this year, after I made the decision to start my own business, I began drawing plans for greenhouses. I’ve tended a large garden for years and went to school for architecture. I figured this project would be a good spring board for my journey into entrepreneurship. I completed it in the Spring, but am just now getting around to posting photos.
I sourced the wood from a nearby sawmill that typically sells log cabin kits. The rough cut wood actually came in a “greenhouse kit”, but I didn’t like the design included, so I changed the whole thing to work with what I had in mind. It was the largest project I had taken on at the time, and let me just say, thank the gods for Autodesk. The green windows are the only part that are not made of oak. They were sourced from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, and I modified them to fit into the opening.
So many details changed over the course of the build, and though it was fascinating and fun to work with at times, this rough material also caused me to spew profanities daily. Got a sweet new scar, professional work examples and a comfy little greenhouse for my efforts.
If you have any feedback, send it my way! Hope ya’ll enjoy!
