    I started on the new replacement greenhouse on Saturday, the new greenhouse has a foot print of 10' x 20' and is around 240 sq ft more than the old A-frame greenhouse I been using.
    The design will be similar to the "Solar Shed" idea but built more to my climate and needs.
    Here are a few pictures on the foundation. I will post more as I build.

    Make sure you put chicken wire around the wooden base. I had woodchucks go under my greenhouse base and eat my very early broccoli at the peek of perfection.
