We’ve been getting SO MANY questions about the greenhouse, so I figured I could answer them all in one place!
Q: Did you buy a kit? If so, where?
A: No kits! Mitch and I sat down beside his parent’s pool in Texas in July one evening, and sketched out what we wanted the greenhouse to look like. Surprisingly enough, we didn’t go through many variations for the main structure.
Q: Where is it located?
A: We’re close to Lynchburg, VA. The greenhouse was built in our backyard on our private property.
Q: Will you sell the supply list?
A: If this is something you’re truly interested in, please inquire. This greenhouse was custom built for us and has exactly what we wanted. It has indescribable personal and sentimental value to us, so pricing on a supply list and/or kit would reflect that.
Q: How long did it take you to build, and who built it?
A: It took 7 months to build. Aside from a couple days where a friend stepped in to help, my husband, Mitch, was outside all day, every possible day, building it by himself.
Q: Why did you build it?
A: You can read about that right here!
Q: It is weatherproofed?
A: Not yet! All the plants will come inside for the winter. Weatherproofing is something we intend to look into for next year.
Q: I’m a photographer! Can I rent it from you for sessions?
A: We’re opening it up for photographers to rent in 2019! You can read more information here.
Q: Can I get married in your greenhouse?
A: Yes, you can! In 2018, we’re offering a photography/greenhouse rental fee. In 2019, you’re welcome to bring in your own photographer. They must provide proof of insurance and be pre-approved by us. You can read more information here.
Q: How many people will it hold inside?
A: We’ve estimated that it will seat about 20 people. The option to get married outside of it is also available, which would seat additional people.
Q: What’s included if we rent it for our wedding?
A: The rental literally just includes using the structure itself. Everything else will need to be brought in and set up/taken down by you and/or friends/family. As this greenhouse was built privately for our family, we do not provide anything wedding related for you to use.
