DIY Greenhouse Ideas on Hometalk

I know the rest of the country is getting hammered with really cold temperatures and snow but out here in the Pacific Northwest, we've enjoyed several unseasonably warm and sunny days recently. The past two weekends have been stunning so my mind is spinning with ideas for projects. Thanks to a friend posting a picture of a charming greenhouse on Facebook, I got to thinking about the greenhouse I built in the garden a couple of years ago. It has been a wonderful addition but when I built it, I had planned on taking it down during the summer months so it wouldn't obstruct the view of the garden from the pergola. It kept my tomatoes so happy though that I decided that was more important than the view.

The other compromise in our gardening spaces has been the back garden which, with the exception of the cute bright fence crafted out of painted crib parts, isn't all that great looking.

Suddenly I figured out how to solve both problems: I could move the greenhouse to the back garden and improve on the design in the process! This, of course, took me to Hometalk to browse what other people are doing with their greenhouses. I created a board of ideas I was inspired by for various reasons and I'd love you to go over to check it out:
