Garden Room 1.0

Here are the before shots of the covered patio we are turning into a garden room...

This was taken right after we moved in, and long before we painted the exterior.
And here is what it is looking like right now...
 More junk in here at the moment, and we plan to paint everything white to reflect the light

but this is what the outside wall looks like sans paint...


And here is our new seed starting station...

The lights raise and lower (hung on chains and looped over an S hook on the shelves above) so as the seedlings mature, we can move the lights higher! Each shelf (the three that we put lights on) has a total of four fluorescent daylight bulbs.  The outlet they are plugged into is NEW! :)

I think we are planning to move that further away from the door that goes into the dining room, (left edge of the picture) and put a small shelf in the corner to store things like testing equipment, etc.  At the moment nothing is finalized for the plans, but they are firming up each little advance we make.  We found an aquaponics forum to join, and have gotten some good information from the short spurts of time we have spent there.

So, that is the promised update!

That looks like a great start! It looked cozy as a porch too.
