The Greenhouse | Update 1 of 3

From the ground to the framework.

The space where we planned to build.

Gotta clean it up first!



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 to make sure each post was lined up perfectly front to back and side to side.

Project Manager hard at work.

Checking stability.

Posts are in! Obviously not centered or level.

All posts in. Three feet in the ground. 2 feet of concrete. Not. Going. Anywhere.

Testing windows!

We ordered 2 orders of dirt to level out the entire ground space.


This is how people hurt themselves.

Mitch got that beam up all by himself. Like wow. That thing is a beast and he did it by himself!

The next update will be when the roofing and rafters are in! Stay tuned!
