This Dreamy Greenhouse Is Also A Chicken Coop And Party Room

About 25 years ago, B.C. designer Lisa Moody had a little garden. But like many passion projects, it got set aside while she and her husband raised their children and she grew her business. Now that those kids are 20, 18 and 15, she thought it was time to dust off her trowel and nurture this hobby again. “Gardening is so peaceful, and it’s something I can control in a crazy time,” says Lisa, who bought a house with her husband on an acre of land a decade ago in North Surrey, B.C., about an hour’s drive from Vancouver. A couple of years back, they installed raised beds behind the garage. Then, on a family trip to Sweden, Lisa noticed something. “Almost everyone there has a greenhouse and I connected to that,” she says. “My husband saw how much I loved gardening and said, ‘Let’s install a greenhouse, a chicken coop and more raised garden beds.’”
