    I admire your ingenuity and innovations. I think it was well planned and your frame work does not seem over stressed either. Good thinking buddy!

    This looks like a very tidy, clever conversion. I always like seeing examples of reuse and repurpose...although I am envious of the green house itself. Our growing season here in the Colorado mountains is so short I'd love to have something like that to get stuff started early (because we can have snow in May or even June) or keep it going past the first frosts (which often come in mid September).

    Your chickens look happy and well ventilated!

    Thanks! A greenhouse like that might work better where you are. As we remember it was just over $100. for the kit and took a couple hours to put together. It didn't have vents at the top like you often see on glass greenhouses so here in Texas where it can be quite hot during the day and cold at night it made for steamed vegatables [​IMG]
