When the idea of the greenhouse was born, of course I had dreams of doing a styled wedding shoot with it. We waited until the weather was perfect and we knew the light. I carefully pieced together each part. I knew exactly what I wanted it to look like. We just had to find the […]


GENERAL 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 2017 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 […]

What was it’s purpose? Why are we building this? We brainstormed, planned and saved for months. […]


From the ground to the framework. The space where we planned to build. Gotta clean it up first! Before. After. Leveling out the ground. Hmmm… how big do we want it? You can’t tell, but there are 12 3 foot holes in the ground for each post. Our fingerprints on the entire project! We had […]
