Design Specifications

The greenhouse is designed such that water does not come into contact with the bamboo. This is achieved through the use of coatings (Tar and Paint) as well as concrete. The coatings are applied at the base of the bamboo while concrete is used at the foundation of the bamboo posts to provide a solid foundation and prevent direct contact between water and the bamboo posts.
