Stained frame.  Customized larger Dutch doors/posts were provided to fit within the concrete curb wall. 
Two doors allow for access to back yard.

Absolutely picture perfect!
"The night time illumination is from (2) 1000 watt high pressure sodium grow lights. 
It looks/feels just like real sunlight and the plants respond remarkably well."
A summer oasis all year round.  Thanks to Dave for sharing these informative step by step photos of his project.
Extremely impressive planning for such a superior job Dave!  Thanks so much.
"My family and I are extremely proud of our Cedar-Built greenhouse.  The structure went together quite well and is very sturdy and tight - a necessity for our harsh Iowa winters !  Jane responded well to inquiries during my initial planning phase and Noel did a great job customizing several aspects of the greenhouse to accommodate my concrete foundation.  We look forward to many years of growing plants and experimenting with greenhouse vegetation possibilities."
