GREENHOUSE

A love of gardening and propagating motived myself, with nudging from my wife, to build a greenhouse to house not only plants and potting goods, but also my favorite items, my outdoor Ryobi tools which are used almost daily. I built the structure on concrete blocks, and used 3/8" anchors to hold the bottom plate of the walls. The windows are discarded glass from sliding patio doors, which saved a bundle of money since these are readily available and inexpensive. I used my Ryobi nail gun for the cedar wood trim and siding, and installed the clear plastic roofing to maximize sunlight in the greenhouse. I am starting to fill it up already, and am looking forward to many hours of enjoyable projects thanks to this new addition!

This is quite a step up from the bird feeder, but it seems you were up to the challenge! It looks great! Using sliding patio doors as windows looks like a smart move. Looks like you have a perfect place for your RYOBI tools as well as your plants. How long did this project take?

Thank you for your nice comments, I definitely love the final result! Time wise for this project, I would say it took me just over 6 days, as I would work on it about 4 to 6 hours a day depending on which stage I was at. And you are right, it is a perfect place for my outdoor RYOBI tools, they are ready to grab whenever I need them for all of my landscaping projects. The batteries and chargers I store inside the garage with my additional RYOBI tools. I think it is great that you have these RYOBI NATION contests every month, a perfect way to let people showcase their projects! Thank you!
