|New Yankee Workshop Online: Greenhouse|
He may be America's favorite master carpenter, but Norm readily admits that he's a "brown thumb," when it comes to gardening. This greenhouse is the perfect project for the serious backyard gardener (or someone who knows one) who is "workshop bound" for the winter. Norm fabricates this design out of redwood and polycarbonate panels. Built to withstand even the toughest weather conditions, this greenhouse provides enough insulation and light to sustain plants during the long winter months.
A note from the owner.
"No project ever built at New Yankee has been more rewarding than the Greenhouse. Now that I'm retired, I spend one or two hours a day there fussing with my plant collection. It has stood up to wind, snow,and rain without complaint and gives me a fine place to raise flowers and vegetables (even early tomatoes) We don't heat it but, with that plastic glazing, it keeps night time temperatures within safe limits for tender items during these crucial spring growing days. Build one, as many have before, and you will thank me every day. "
