This project serves two purposes. Chickadees can build their nest in the upper nesting cavity. The bottom section is a "warmer." In cold winter climates, chickadees like to cuddle together in this section to help each other stay warm.
This greenhouse consists of a lumber frame suitable for a cover such as a clear UV resistant polythene film. It is 8ft (2400mm) wide by 10ft (3000mm) and stands 8ft 6inch (2550mm) off the ground at the highest point. There are two opening windows that span along the very top of the greenhouse and a door at either end (optional). The greenhouse basically sits on the ground and is held in place by a few stakes around the bottom that are hammered into the ground and nailed to sides of the base. It could be fixed more permanently if required without too much ado, and would probably need to be, if positioned anywhere other than a sheltered area. It is ideal for areas that have just enough winter frosts to be annoying. Choose a place likely to get the winter sun. The greenhouse should not be placed in a potential boggy area without drainage. If the site is a low lying area, then it might be necessary to put in a drain (open, tile or metal) to re-direct any water flow away from the greenhouse site.
An all around great design for a potting bench. Make it out of redwood as shown, or any rot resistant wood so it will last for years outdoors. Plenty of room for pot shelves, potting work surface and storage for gardening tools, wood stakes and garden plant markers.
