The cubs had to use a hand saw to cut the handles, power drills to screws all the sides together and a mallet to put the handle in place.
We had to help the cubs build 25 in a little over 1 hour so things needed to be quite straight-forward.
To achieve the badge the cubs had to paint a vertical surface. On the other side I thought it would be good to have half of the pack working as small teams building and hanging shelves. Hanging shelves - that’s what DIY is all about isn’t it!

The finished greenhouse. 5m by 3.5m
This greenhouse cost under £6,000 including the foundations, walls and brick pathway etc - actually, everything that you see.
I’ve taken a few close-up snaps to show you the quality of the finished greenhouse.
Please note that all the fittings are of the highest quality - stainless steel ball-bearing hinges which are recessed into the timber, 3-lever morticed lock which are housed within the timber rather than a surface mounted lock and all the joints are morticed and tennoned and pegged with hard-wood dowels.
Thank you to my wonderful customers.
I suppose it’s a risk when you find someone offering a greenhouse at less than half what others are asking, including the base works. The main reason is that I do all the work myself, apart from all the painting work which Sarah kindly undertakes for me.
Let me put you in touch with past customers if you are still unsure.
On completion it looks like a pretty large space - in a beautiful setting.
