Greenhouse Update

I haven't really shown the greenhouse this year.
 Thought maybe it was time for an update.
The latest addition are the vintage stained glass windows
on each side of the front door.
If you peak inside you will see more windows waiting
to be added to the roof.
We now have enough windows to finish one side completely.
We only have two more windows to find to have enough to finish the roof;
so the search is still on.
Then it will be just finishing touches, some paint,
readjusting the doors and adding the vintage lock, adding
the pot belly stove and chimney,
then adding a copper kick board on the bottom of the door.
We are hoping for a 2011 completion and celebration,
but we will see how it goes.
A stone patio is being added outside the front door too.
I think it will be too beautiful for just the plants once it is finished.
What do you think?
Still a work in progress!

Ah, a greenhouse with a potbelly stove and stained glass window seems like heaven!

Wonderful progress, it's so fun to think about what you will create/grow/share when it's done!

I LOVE it Marilyn! I'm happy to see the update, would love to have this in my yard! Have a great week, and hope you find those windows soon!

Oh, this is wonderful, Marilyn! I love how you are building it piece by piece, and that it's a real recycling project--I love that! Hope you'll find windows soon, so you can have that celebration before long. Keep us posted. :o) Happy Day ((HUGS))

I love the stained glass windows and I can't wait to see (in person, of course) the patio and the finished project. Thanks for sharing your wonderful greenhouse again. It always reminds me of the day we had tea together there!
