I guess everyone has a claim to fame. Mine is that I am now the owner of the ugliest greenhouse in existence. I knew I shouldn’t have been away when I was having this work done, but I thought I had given the builder a detailed description of what I wanted. Obviously not. They built it with a shed roof. To me a shed roof is either an A framed roof or the type that is found on barns. Not to the contractor. To him…..well, why don’t I just post the photos. Then maybe someone can tell me if there’s anything that can be done to make it look any better. Joe, I hope you’re not going to be too upset.
The inside looks fine. The beds are fairly roomy and there’s enough room in the middle for a chair should I ever feel like reading a book in the warmth of a greenhouse. However look at the outside!!
The large L-shaped raised bed seen in the foreground is pretty ugly too, although I think I can soften the lines with hanging flowers. It’ll also look better when it’s full of vegetable plants. You can see I’ve started planting the first few rows. The greenhouse though, I just don’t know. I sent a note off to the builder this morning telling him how disappointed I am in the project. I waited so long to have a greenhouse, and now to see it looking like this just makes me feel sick.
