BALLARD RESIDENCE

CUSTOM-BUILT GREENHOUSE

The owner of this Ballard home is an avid gardener who had always dreamed of having her own greenhouse.  The design process here was a unique collaboration between homeowner and contractor, resulting in a space that is both personal and practical.  The greenhouse is now home to the owner’s cacti collection as well as seasonal seedlings to plant out in her extensive vegetable beds.  A few of the highlights:

  • Custom-built cedar benches with free-draining plastic surfaces
  • Stone counter-top & window sill ledge
  • Plant stand designed and fabricated by local metal artist Carla Grahn
  • Removable wood cover for easy-access to potting soil bin
