Figured why not show y'all how it all started. Everyone loves pictures right....

Last year after crazy late freezes, etc, I decided I was going to build a green house on the new property I bought. I have a nice shop and decided to build a little green house off the side because of the way it gets sun......

Initial build site.

Image

These are my mock up plans :D Elementary compared to some of yalls, but this stuff is in my head, not on paper

Image

And here we go

Great work! looks good.
Watch out when using any clear pipe that has AP water in it and gets even small amounts of sunlight... tends to become algae clogged as it grows.
