A stepped greenhouse? This one goes over a large step - actually the bigher level to the garden which is retained with gambion baskets filled with stone. My customer wanted me to design a greenhouse close to the shared boundary at the top of the garden but also have it stretch down onto the lower garden.
I came up with this....
There are lots of complications which restrict this design -
I added 4 opening side windows and 2 auto opening roof windows to ventilate the space and the doors, being inward opening, can be left open all day if required.
I built internal steps and brick-sided internal raised beds as well.
It's not about greenhouses but it's worth a mention. I live in one of the most beautiful parts of the world and love exploring the countryside by running the fells. I get to see Snowden (Yr Wyddfra) from my garden on clear days but this weekend I got the chance to climb all the 15 peaks of the Snowdonia range in one day. We ran it of course!
Taking another re-fueling stop whilst chatting to our guide. I'm not in this photo as I took it!
Here we're crossing the treacherous Crib Gogh just as the sun is coming up. We set off at the base of Yr Wyddfra at 4am and took just under 15 hours to complete the journey. What a blast!
I'm 3rd from the left on the above photo. An amazing bunch of fun-loving, madcap folk!
