Found a Greenhouse

Coming into the town where I live, there is an old Farmhouse with a homemade greenhouse. I have been trying to contact the owners and see if they would be willing to let me tear it down and move it.

It appears to be about 8X12', it has had wood heat, and has a fan system installed, and it has a long shelf down one side. They used large storm windows on the sides and fiberglass panels for the top. It looks like it hasn't been used in years.

I have made a couple of trips there and knocked on the door, but so far no answer.

If I can get it, it would be a very cheap way to get a greenhouse. I'll keep you posted.

Oh, I'll be waiting to hear about it. clp clp clp

I had a nice older gentlemen *who I have red columbines' from* passed away, and I tried getting his greenhouse, but the owner's wouldn't sell..
But the shame of it is, they just let it go more than it was already going.. and it's in sad disrepair now.. eek

I hope you get it.....

This is/was a really nice one in it's day. I am sure it will have some rotten boards and I will probably have to replace some of it, but that is still cheaper than buying new.

I am not sure if the owners died or what I can't find anybody home.

I guess I will have to ask around town until I find out.

I know a few people that should know who to contact. I will check with them a couple of days.
