Howdy everyone, I've been slowly but steadly (and quietly forum-wise, though I've been keeping up with the buzz!) working on my Orchid; I'm at near-completion in terms of the house structure itself! Pictures soon to follow. I was thinking through a way to spruce up the exterior wall of my Orchid (there aren't any windows on the first floor). I'd like to add some interest to that side (so that it isn't overshadowed by my little Greenleaf greenhouse add-on on the opposite end of the house). In short, Has anyone ever built a cellar addition? If so, did you only construct the above-ground, exterior portion for the effect? Did anyone actually add on a cellar level to the house structure (i.e., build "beneath" the house? I have in mind the sort that is nestled up against the house (used for roots or storm shelter, I believe). Any thoughts on this? I'd love to hear 'em!
Of course I knew the measurements from before the kit arrived, but this was my first chance to see right in front of me, exactly how much space this multi-part project was going to take up!
