A few days back I learned a tad more about my upcoming space. The building length is  21 feet or 6.4 meters. My floor height, interior and exterior, are equal (except down on the sidewalk). Plus I will have the full front space, up to 5 feet from the windows, including the front door!  So that means 21′ x 5′. Pretty sizable! How does this affect my plans? Well, for starters, I won’t have to produce any flower stalk over 6 feet. My idea of creating a stage isn’t necessary and would take a lot more work. So, here is my idea:

Recycled plant containers, PVC pipe, and cement! If extra side tip stability is needed, I would add bars through the drainage holes. Below is my quick check with gravel rather than cement.

Eventually the brain lands in the right grooves! It’s slowly taking shape. I need to place orders and cracking on this project!

    1. the nice thing about posting plans is getting feedback. One of my local friends has made an interesting suggestion that might work, and look, even better. 🙂

  1. how many of these do you need? I also have sheet metal stands that a pipe can be screwed 1 in pipe can be screwed into…what I do my stacks on, that you could borrow.

    1. Thanks Cynthia, I’ll keep that in mind. I’ve also received some interesting suggestions from Hester that might be kind of a cool industrial look rather than the bucket idea. It’s so nice to have suggestions and options! That’s why I keep plugging along with this blog. 🙂
