Charlotte's Greenhouse


My beautiful wife is my inspiration for this project. She has been my wife for 31 years and I have always wanted to do something very special for her. She has always wanted a greenhouse and when I had to retire due to disability I finally had time to do it. It has taking a very long time to get to the point that it is today because I am so limited to what I can do physically. I have severe nerve damage and a condition called RSD/CRPS that occurred after 7 surgeries from line of duty injuries from my law enforcement career. I have owned Ryobi tools for many years and still use some of the old blue tools as well as the newer ones. I drew the plans for the greenhouse about 3 years ago and little by little phase I is getting near completion. Phase I is the greenhouse and phase II will be a wrap around deck with covered porch. I have had to find creative ways to do things to lessen the physical impact and my Ryobi tools have helped make this possible. I have used my Ryobi set that came with the storage cabinet, miter saw, reciprocating saw, router, skill saw, drill, flashlight and some new additions like the impact driver, caulking gun, sander and blower.

I can't thank Ryobi enough for the great cordless tools that have made this possible. I have been working on this for over 3 years and my Ryobi tools have been used extensively. My Ryobi tools will certainly out last me.
