Surrey, BC, 8 September 2022 – BC Greenhouse Builders, North America’s leading manufacturer of hobby greenhouses and greenhouse kits, was featured in May 2022’s issue of House and Home! Author Wendy Jacob scribed “This Dreamy Greenhouse Is Also A Chicken Coop And Party Room”, about our client, Lisa Moody’s, dream of having a combination greenhouse and chicken coop in her garden.

“Lisa vacillated between different white greenhouses, but she found them cottagey and, instead, opted for one with a black frame that looked more modern and Scandinavian. Longtime greenhouse manufacturer BC Greenhouse Builders was located just a few blocks away, and that’s where she found her eight- by 12-foot model — at a cost of about $10,000 — which was customized to share a wall with her chicken coop.”

We are so happy Lisa is in love with her custom greenhouse and the collaboration process in seeing her vision come to life! 

Lisa said “A greenhouse allows me to start sowing earlier and grow plants like lettuce and herbs all the way through the winter,” she says. “It’s ideal for Canada because it expands the growing season and delivers better results. As long as you invest in a good foundation for your greenhouse, it’s not outrageously expensive and, in a Canadian climate, it’s a great addition.”

Lisa says the greenhouse has made her think about the future, one that might include grandchildren pulling up radishes one day. “I want to be able to grow stuff with my grandkids; I so enjoyed that time when my children were young. This greenhouse is a building for my future and my family.”
