Well, I just about have everything I need for my french door green house. The French doors are at my friends house the 2 paneled doors are waiting across the street. I had two loads of cedar donated to my cause along with an old garden gate frame. I was given 3 pallets and now I am just waiting for a few sunny days in a row to get out there and build it. Oh yea, I had two cast iron sinks given to me too. They are a little smaller then what I wanted, But Hey ! ! ! can't look those gift horses in the mouth


  • Mine will probably look like this but I prefer the other one. Will have to wait and see how good I am at construction. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can. Heh

    Jan. I'm the lucky recipient of an original cast iron sink with side drainage attached. I'm trying to get my husband to let me incorporate it into our kitchen redo, it would be perfect. But if not I.m mounting it to our old chicken .coop for a potting

    Jan, what about anchors? If you go to Lowe's or Home Depot, you'll find they sell several types of anchors, some of which can be screwed into the ground. Chat with them and see if those might work.

    If you do, I would be sure to find a way to secure it so that the wind won't tip it over. That is my problem at the moment as I can't find anyone to dig me four post holes for the 4x4's that I will be sinking in each corner to stabilize it.

    Heheh, like your comment Patricia, I can relate. Especially around here. We have a lot of skaters and a skate park a block away. Nothing against skaters but they would rather be skating then working.
