One learns the best new things when looking for something else. I'd never heard of a Headhouse until last night.
I aspire to a headhouse between the greenhouse and the farm equipment barn.
A Headhouse is a structure usually attached or adjacent to a greenhouse or greenhouses that serves as a storage facility, potting shed and garden equipment garage in my case.
Large greenhouse operations may use a headhouse as an entry building, office, employee lunchroom and utility control facility in addition to storage. Ms. Stewart's is a handsome stone edifice.
An ideal layout would put a headhouse on north side of a greenhouse as a windbreak. That is not going to happen here. We plan to disrupt as few of existing structures as possible including plantings that divert rainwater and prevent flooding.
I realized that there would be much more greenhouse space for plants if I stopped storing large bags of potting mix and empty pots and trays in there.
He-Who-Mows wants to reclaim the space in his farm workshop area taken up by my tiller, edger, chipper/shredder, weed whacker, emergency heat devices, hoses and watering equipment, garden truck, spare greenhouse polycarbonate panels, old storm windows slated for a cool greenhouse lean-to somewhere, Christmas lights, little green wagon and garden furniture.
We'll see. If it happens I plan to call it the Mule Barn rather than a Headhouse.
