A lot of work. But being a Superintendent in the construction industry this stuff is easy tinkering for me. Just did the cost anylasis on the organizations taxs this year. Out of pocket I spent 7634.82 on this building. However I got all the windows left over from a jobsite, the doors, about 60% of the wood framing material, and all siding. So in reality this project if funded without my hook up in the industry would be around 15,000 plus.

Love all of your pictures and the series of photos.

What is the kind of stone you used for the enclosure walls again? Looks like there are two sizes so you can alternate each level.

Lynne its a chopped sand stone. There is 2 different sizes, 8" and 10". Nice and heavy so they dont move it. Also when the leos and Texas torts get their new building I can rearrange the pens in the greenhouse and change things up for everyone. Once everyone goes back outside I will strip the stones and rack all the mulch out and super clean everything then i can finally finish paint and some little details on the inside. I ran out of time last year. The cool nights came too quick so everyone had to get moved in. So its allllllmost totally complete.

Your greenhouse project looks very nice. I will be borrowing your plans in a few years when I am ready to upgrade.

I can send you some bromeliads in the spring if you would like. I have been collecting them for two decades so i have a few neat ones.

Whatcha mean john? I used standard 12-2 to a main breaker panel. Just like a house. All the heat bulbs are on switches day/night bulbs. Every other bulb is either day mvb or night red heat. Theres 8 circuits in there. Plugs,day/night bulbs, fans, overhead and outdoor lighting, and general plugs in case i need to add any heaters or put small torts up on the shelves and use clamp lamps or anything. The main feeder is tied in with under ground conduit from the smaller building which has its own meter.
