my wife and i are making an offer on a house. unfortunatly its in town and not EXACTLY what we are looking for but its sitting on a lot and a half so i would have a big yard(big enough for a 8'x8' pond plus a small bog and still have LOTS of room). the back of the house faces south and would be REALLY easy to attatch a greenhouse to that i can just walk out the back door into. at the moment their is a nice sized utility room in the basement with a cement floor and drain so i could set up an RO system and small plastic 4x6 or 4x8 cheap greenhouse i could indoor growing till i get a greenhouse built down the road. hang lights from the rafters on wired poked through the plastic ect. plus still have plenty of room for my frogs and a reloading bench for my guns...........
downside is the basement isnt quite finished how we like so down the road we would tear most of it out and turn 2 of the 4 rooms plus 1/2 bath into a master bedroom and bath as between a friend, my father in law and myself we could do 95% of the work.
will keep yah posted

Good luck, rattler! You've come this far, not much is going to stop you from reaching your goals now.

That's the problem with Montana; you never know when a neighbor has frogs and a reloading bench for his guns in the basement.

I think you have that backwards. http://www.terraforums.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif
A 8'x8' bog with a small pond sounds alot better.

True, it does have a better ring to it... Something about it, not quite sure why. http://www.terraforums.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif
Hopefully you can make this all work out and have a really wonderful home!

or how about a 12' x 12' bog and just forget about the pond?
03-20-2006, 07:10 PM
nah i like water lilies and there are none naturally around here so i must plant my own. besideds i am not going to dedicate an RO system just for a bog, the pond i can use city water but a bog with Sarrs cant..............

Funny, I've been feeling that way myself for years...
Well it sounds like a great house. Though what with a lot and a half you could replicate Mike King's greenhouse plan http://www.terraforums.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
