~Welcome to the Rainwater Greenhouse Project Overview~
Pictures from the same point
over the course of building so far,
The site as I arrived to it.
Ethan and his father had already done much of the work, prepping an 18" deep gravel trench for the foot of the building and cutting 2'x2' concrete blocks out of existing slabs on their property.

Ferrocement gutter cures

Purlins and brackets and beams, oh my!

Metal roofing goes up and reclaimed glass sliding doors form the front wall.

The clerestory is also crafted from reclaimed windows.
