So, what happens when your sister in law has an orchid passion as well? (referring to my other blog post about orchid green houses)

Your wife will ask you to build a green house for your sister in law.

And what do we do? We build the green house, of course! And we like it that way!

3×6″ cut lengthwise to create 3×3″ beams. 6’6″ length. These are the standing legs

tape measure
sanding paper, detail sanding machine

These instructions are the way I built this green house. It’s maybe not the most efficient way to build, but I just think up the construction along the way. For me, this is the most fun to build it. Sometimes I look at what I made and then don’t know how to proceed. Then it’s time to take a moment and think it through. There’s always a solution, so when inspiration comes, I continue
