Plan to build a lean to greenhouse onto the back of an existing garden shed. Will frame it up and use used windows in the walls. Anyone ever done this. If so, would appreciate any advice on what works and what does not work.

Sounds like a good idea, wish I had some advice. What kind of stuff will you be growing in it? Overwintering plants or a winter vegetable garden? Good luck

Want to try and grow some veggies during the cold months. Most important is to over winter my wife's hanging baskets and other flowers that she brings into the house and most of them currently die. \:\(

Planning on doing this myself! I have drawn up a plan that I am using glass from old sliding doors that have been removed. My shop is 36 ft. wide and I am planning on 16 X 12 greenhouse lean to. This side of the shop is facing South. The remaining portion is going to be a chicken coop and pen. I am in the process as we speak of filling out my USDA Farm Census and it pisses me off that the government has to know everything that we do, (even if you have eggs for the table). Look out there will be a chicken tax.

Well, my plans have hit a snag. Dude that promised me all the used windows I could use has decided to keep them. Guess I will see if I can find another source.

When I filled out my census, I figured some things were none of their business.

Yes, I felt like a lot of things weren’t their business, it just pissed me off that they want to know!
