Project Greenhouse Day 2

So we moved onto day 2 on the Green (red) house,

Front Frame and roof.

 unfortunately I had to buy timber to use as the frame as I couldn’t source anything decent to use for the frame. I bought 9 fence rails 12′ long and a pack of 2″x 1″, some menion plates, hinges,  a draw bolt and some red cedar paint.

The front frame is 6′ x 6′ with a 27″ space for the door. The roof at the back is a little under 7′ high and approximately 4′ deep.

Side frames in place.

It’s a little twisted at the moment so I had to do a few alterations as the ground is uneven and the wall its attached to is definitely not plumb. Donna started painting as we are trying to get it to match in with the workshop.

see its a redhouse.

This is how we left it at the end of the day. It will definitely need another couple of coats of paint before the plastic starts to get fitted but all in all a pretty decent days work.

Greenhouse Door.

 I also made the door today but it hasn’t been fitted & painted yet. We are not sure if we want to paint it black to match in the Workshop door when we get round to painting it. What do you think? The fascia boards are black and the workshop window are black so it sort of makes sense.

Different angle.

I know it’s a little higldy pigldy with different size boards on the back wall but we are very much on a budget but having caught the bug of growing our own flowers for the raised beds in the front garden and me dabbling with some veggies in the back garden, we really wanted a more permanent greenhouse. I think we are doing OK so far especially when we live in a mid terraced house, the back garden is approximately 24′ wide by 42′ long.

Well that’s the end of day 2.

  1. Looking good 🙂 In fact its looking more than good its looking Super Smashing GREAT !
    All the prep though makes the build easier and the uneven boards you wont really see once the plastic is on and there is a wheeeeeeeem of tomato plants and cucumbers growing in there 🙂

    • Thanks Craig 🙂
      Hopefully the tomatos will ripen this year. I think I’m going to have a go at pepers, tomatoes and and umm ok its only a 6 by 4 lol. I’m sure i will think of something else.
