This week I returned to Woking and built one of my most popular and favourite greenhouses - the 5m by 3.5m with cold frames and porch. This one has crested ridge - it’s always a long job to hand-cut and paint these but they do look worth it in the end.
You’ve seen this greenhouse a few times on my website - I’ve taken photos of every stage of the build, produced time-lapse video and loads of photographs showing all areas, inside and out....
So,for something different, this week’s video is:-
All Green Bug greenhouses are fitting with toughened glass.
I wanted to demonstrate, just for your piece of mind, just how tough this stuff really is.
I’ll be building all the rafters from 4x2 timber rather than the normal 2x2. It’s going to be a tough/robust/chunky but classy greenhouse.
I’d better make a good job of this one then.
The top couple of inches of soil were good with a nice lot of small worms - so I saved that for the raised bed inside.
