Thanks to the good folks at Millbrook Cottages for taking such good care of me during my final 4-day visit to put the building up on the walls here.
This greenhouse is huge! It measures 7metres long by 3.5m wide and feels very roomy inside. Once all the glass was in and sealed up however it instantly felt warm and cosy (even at this time of year!).
I would love to spend many happy hours in here potting up and tending the plants - lucky guys eh!
Remember, everything you see is hand-built from stock timber - I lathe the finials from blocks of 4x4 and build the doors from 4x2 and mortice and tennon the joints and peg with hard-wood dowels.
Back in Devon again this week (and next!).John (my customer) wanted a stone built wall for this greenhouse - and had a local craftsman build that (not my thing I’m afraid - it’s important to know your limits though eh!).
I built the rest of the greenhouse back at my workshop to fit the wall dimensions John gave me - and it all fitted together beautifully.
