We are finally getting started on transplanting the greenhouse from our neighbor’s pool to our backyard.
We knew it was going to be a big project. I’m not starting as many seeds this year, nor am I planning to order any new trees and shrubs to put in. This project, I’m certain, will take up more than enough of our time this Spring and Summer.
Earlier this week, we trekked over to the neighbor’s to take stock and form a plan.
You know how sometimes a situation can seem like more work in your own head?Yeah, this is not one of those times.
This is going to be an undertaking.
We will have to remove the greenhouse in pieces. Short of inventing a shrink gun, there’s just no way we can transport the whole thing in one piece.
We will be bribing family and friends to come over and help us move all this…stuff. The fridge will be stocked with cold beverages, the steaks will just keep rolling off the grill and cookies will be available at all times.
I will not, I admit, be doing most of the ‘heavy lifting’, but I will be project managing this beast.
The first step is to label the pieces so that when we take them out, we will be able to (ahem) easily put the whole thing back together again.
Then…we will need to slowly move all of the patio pavers from the bottom of the pool to our back yard.
Then…we will need to get a vacuum excavator to pull out all the soil under the patio pavers.
Then…we will need to carefully take the whole thing apart and move it to our backyard.
Finally, we will start the reconstruction process using my sketch and labels as a guide.
