BTW I have been working on the greenhouse project a little bit. We have decided to move the structure to a different area, so I had to take it apart and will have to put it back together. So far I have taken apart all of the poles for the stucture and moved them up top, the ex's Parents have property that is cut roughly in half by a cliff. The upper part is where their house is the lower part is where the structure was set up. Her mother has MS and can't make the walk up and down and didnt want to have to be driven down their daily to take care of the garden. We are going to set it up with a mostly Eastern exposure. As this project progresses I will take more pictures and let everyone know where it stands. :)

yeah, well it's a slow project. I have a feeling that it's not going to go the way I wanted it to go either IE no much space if any at all for cacti ;) At least I am learning :P

I hope you will be proved wrong, after you have been so looking forward to this project Peter. I take it that your ex mom has her own plans then.

All depends on what she wants to grow. Go hydroponics. :)

oh its coming along. It probably wont look much like a greenhouse at first, but will be one eventually. right now it's raining and it will be muddy so probably in a day or two we will have the garage part of of it up.

I'm thinking: does someone need a greenhouse in Arizona at all? :D May be just some shade and shelter for his plants.
If your cacti mess in your job just forget about the job.
