A complete tear-down, rehabilitation and rebuild of the Henry Botanic Garden’s historically significant Lord & Burnham greenhouse is well underway, with a third of the structure re-glassed. With 180 hours of labor logged, Doug Wolffe and Matt Golas to date have replaced 42 panes of plate glass with new tempered glass, restored all the cypress framing and aluminum caps to factory fresh condition, rebuilt the vent windows and primed and painted and glazed the interior and exterior portions of the structure. The arduous work requires theĀ skills of a carpenter, glazier, mason, welder, sheet-metal worker, plumber and electrician. Accompanying photos show the greenhouse section prior to the rebuilding as well as portions that remain to be addressed.
