Building a Greenhouse or Cold Frame out of a Dog Kennel

By Natalie
July 1, 2013

When we got our Lab pup, Bailey, we decided to buy an outside dog kennel so that she wouldn't get into all of my plants. The idea was that we would leave her in there if we needed to run an errand, instead of letting her have free run of the yard. By the time she was 1 1/2 years old, however, she had only spent an entire 1/2 hour in it. So, it was a wasted $250. Or so I thought! I really wanted a greenhouse, and the kennel made the perfect frame for it!

I don't have a dog kennel, but I have the makings of one here with all the stuff laying around.
What I don't have I am sure on trash days I can get what I need here and there with a little time.
Now I can find room for that costus lucanusianus I have been if I can find it for sale somewhere...LOL
Woohoo great minds at work...thanks for the FANTASTIC idea!!
