This project is a gift from my husband for my 40th birthday. He did the entire project himself. The floor base, the structure, the trusses as well as the stencilling on the floor. The project took him around 2 months to complete. I am a gardening lover and this addition to my garden is something I have always dreamt off but never thought I will be so blessed to receive it as a gift from my very special, one of a kind husband. I use the glasshouse as a greenhouse for starting up seedlings, keep my cuttings and new plant in there and recently, with winter on our doorstep I started growing some fruits and veggies in there too. This space has been used for tea parties and a romantic dinner or two. I love spending time here. It’s my little piece of heaven on earth!
