Greenhouse versus Potting shed

jimla(Z6 PA)November 12, 2011

A few posts back, I asked for some input on designing a greenhouse from salvaged windows. My primary use would be late winter early spring for veggie and annual starts once germinated and started in the house. I got to thinking that maybe a potting shed would be all I needed. I have enough windows to do the south wall, the SE and SW corners and part of the roof. Anyone with experience using such sheds for spring starts or any input at all regarding potting shed design or features?

I had the same dilemma and ended up with this shed, no experince with it through a season yet but I think it will do for early/late season plus some storage.

Nice shed. Do you plan to start your seeds in it or do you plan to start indoors and bring out when thy get a certain height?
