DECK GREENHOUSE

 

 


My hodgepodge of tomato, eggplant and pepper planters wrapped in greenhouse plastic film were not attractive nor really functional on the deck so I build to make a small greenhouse.  Having just finished my basement I thought I could tackle this project without too much difficulty.

Originally, I made the side walls 6’ in length.

Dry fitting the 6’ long walls.  After the okay from my wife, I extended the sidewalls to 8’.  The greenhouse is all cedar,4’ x 8’ and is reserved for my Japanese peppers and eggplants.
