I haven’t finished it yet, still have to wrap the capola and add windows around all 4 sides on it. The capola is a see thru from inside once I install windows. Plus build the sliding wood doors and hang them. Bought my wife a green house that will go against the gable wall, then I will wrap the cypress lap boards around the bottom of green house to tie it all together. The drawing is a little premative but it shows the finished look.

That’s going to be real nice when your done. Where did you get the green house?

Bought the green house from Harbor Freight, 10’ x 12’ real nice green house. A family member purchased one and for $599.00 you can’t beat it. He put his together and I will try to put some photos of it on here.

I think the whole project looks awesome and what could be better then walking into a beautiful shed only to walk into an awesome greenhouse.

You did a really nice job of it.

This is fantastic. Are you using cypress for the exterior siding?

Yes Ray, I used beveled cypress lap siding. Plus I am going to spray a red stain on all the wood when I get time.

I will post photos on here when completed within the next couple of months, so keep looking. Yes it has been fun to build I will be glad when I finish. I started this project November 09 but we had rain here every other day until march. It was a wet winter plus I had so much work I couldn’t get back to working on it.
