Our Greenhouse is (mostly) FINISHED!!!

Our greenhouse is done!! Of course we still need to finish a couple tiny things, like getting the tools cleared out, preparing the soil, and getting the shelves built. It’s finished enough for now. I absolutely love it.

We built our greenhouse out of unfinished cedar, antique windows and our old front door. It’s really just an expensive tomato cover and place to story my ‘sensitive’ plants over winter.

2010 Potager. Greenhouse was built where you see the green bean trellis.

Our new greenhouse! We simply moved the raised bed to a new spot in the garden.

    • You flatter me! Seems we’re both finishing up big projects just in time for the veggie growing season!

  3. It looks like fun. Are you going to add shelves, or plant directly into the ground? I could see cucumbers climbing around inside as well…

    • Kari, I’ve been told there will be no vines growing in our greenhouse. Unfortunately, I have to share the greenhouse with Travis and we already disagree on what’ll be inside.

      We’ll add shelves and grow directly in the ground. It’ll be a mix.

    It looks great! I have been using a collapsable one for the last couple years. I just got it put back up and am getting ready to “stock” it. But now that I’ve seen yours, I want to try to build a permenant one too!

  6. Wow, it looks fabulous. We have saved all our old windows from the house, hoping to build a greenhouse one day as well. Thanks for the inspiration.

    • You should totally do it – would look amazing next to your beautiful home. Hope you’re enjoying the sunshine – you’ll be back to your projects soon enough.

  7. My husband got me a greenhouse for Christmas. I cannot wait to get it up. Two more months. I will keep watching your blog to get ideas. Yours looks great! Thanks for the photos and good luck.

    • Good luck to you too! Two more months will come faster than you think.

  8. I just love, love, love your new greenhouse. So cute and you will get so much use out of it.

    And I love the blue glass insulators on your planting bed boxes too. Darling!

    • Thanks Theresa! I love the glass insulators too! They’re like little finials. ;)

  9. It looks great! I just wish I had the space for one myself… by the way, the soil in your raised beds looks really healthy – what’s the secret?

    April 4, 2011
    • Thomas, our secret? We add compost, our chickens scratch around & poop on the soil (bad, I know), we use organic fertilizers (like fish emulsion) and cover with lots of organic matter in the winter that we till in each spring (by hand).

  10. It looks great! I’d love one someday, but for now I’ll content myself with following along with yours, I hope.

  12. Nice! There seem to be some very impressive carpentry skills on display at Chez Davis.

    April 6, 2011
  13. Awesome! You are so enterprising. I hope I can have a small greenhouse someday.

    April 7, 2011
  14. Beautiful! I really love the way it turned out – congrats on a job well done! Can’t wait to have one in my garden.
