Our property (just a few blocks outside the city limits, so .15 acre) has a building right next to the garage (walls maybe 18 inches apart) that had (originally clear, I'm sure) corrugated fiberglass for about 1/3 to 1/2 of the wall area (not counting the wall next to the garage--that's solid wood) and a translucent corrugated fiberglass roof. There's a heavy glass door, as well (used to have a wooden track, now has to be muscled around to open/close). We thought it was a greenhouse when we bought the house, though the fact that so much of the wall area is wood, and the strange placement/design of shelving made us wonder about the person that designed it... Turns out that it was originally built to house a hot tub, and the low "shelves" were actually the deck around it. That information made the design much more reasonable We've been using it as a greenhouse anyway, though all we've done in it so far is start some tomatoes and hang a couple of Topsy Turvy planters. Then more light was blocked by a shed built on the west side--the side with the biggest stretch of fiberglass, short of the roof. A couple of weeks ago, my husband and I were discussing ways to become a little more self-sufficient, and chickens came up... Anyway, what I'm working with is a 10'x10' wood-and-fiberglass building on a cement slab. The roof is sloped, front to back, and I can just barely reach the tall part and almost flat-palm the low (I'm 5'7"). There's no overhang (well, a couple of inches on the side next to the garage--the one side that has never been exposed to the weather). The garage is on the east, the door is south, the shed is west, and the back is north. The pictures of the space between buildings are from the back, because I'd pulled a lot of stuff out so I could see the walls and take pictures. I didn't pull everything out, because 1) I couldn't shift the tables by myself, 2) I could see the space well enough, and 3) I'd just been tossing stuff out the door, so there wasn't any room... Interior shots start with me standing in the door and circling towards the left. Last shot is the ceiling. This is already getting long, so I'll put my plans in the next post.
