Ok heres some build doodles i did while sitting out in the garage talking to hubby, i didnt use a ruler this time to make my lines straight.
I will try to explain each one the best i can..
First up this is sorta a layout of how everything is gona be, the pond next to the patio, then the patio with a back pannel of lattice so i can grow wisteria vine on it and place whicker chairs and table on the patio, then the greenhouses with landscape around them and patio walk way stones from one greenhouse to the other.
Next we have just the big greenhouse, im going to have a propane heater at one end corner and the other corner will be my small work table, shelf/benches will have 2 levels, there will be support beams thruout for better stablity/strenght and electrical outlets at the end where my work table will be.
Next is just a fast doodle of how the frame and floor is gona be, on the top is the frame/deck, its gona be 1-4x6 frame then the deck floor on that, then another 4x6 frame as sorta a riser to give me more head room in the GH, the ground will be coverd with weedblock, then a layer of pink foam insulation, also pink foam insulation tacked onto the inside sides of the all frame work for better insulation, will rebar the frame to the ground.
The secone drawing is how we are gona do the heat cable, its gona be under the deck floor and ran to the electric outlet, so i can run it when i need it.
next is just alittle doodle of the smaller tropicals GH, i had messed up a few times on size calculations so thats where the scribbling came in as hubby kept saying write this down do this and so forth..
Was gona go 7ft wide by 8 ft long but i think im gona redo my size and go with 10ft long, have to incorperate some exhuast fans up top, the tropicals will come back into the down stairs grow room for winter, we are gona have a high pitched roof just like hubby did with the mini GH and we are gona go with a triple layer 4mil plastic, i have had very good luck with the double layer 4mil plastic hubby used on the mini GH and has lasted several yrs now with proper care durring the winter months. Gona go with a dutch door or get a regular storm screen door. Wasnt sure what size i wanted my side walls so for now i just wrote down 6ft plus a extra 3ft for roof pitch but that will prob change and be bigger. Gona do the same with the frame/deck with the weedblock and also insulation.
Hope that helps you get the idea of what we are doing..
