This greenhouse looks just the right size and colour for this garden. It blends in really well and makes great use of a small corner of the garden. Although the greenhouse is relatively small the height of it makes it spacious inside - it is 1.8m at it’s lowest point, rising to 3m at the ridge - so there is plenty of room for shelving all over without feeling boxed in.
Thanks Jenny and Colin for making so welcome and for choosing a Green Bug greenhouse.

The Lichen paint colour (Farrow & Ball chart) blends the greenhouse into the garden.

I’m building another one of the 11.5ft by 16.5ft greenhouses with the porch and cold frames either side of the door.
The owner wants the greenhouse sited where a swimming pool once sat. The pool had been filled in with hard core so there is a stable base here once I cleared the top 6 inches of sludge.
It rained for the whole 4 days of my visit - mostly the rain was very heavy - but thankfully the gazebo I use is big enough so I am sheltered from it.
I’m really pleased with how it looks in the end. It’s a great feeling to have it rise out of all that mud and mess and look so clean, solid and posh!
Eric, the owner, is shortly getting a friend to come along with his digger and scrape away the rest of this sludge/earth to level off the site and lay some grass seed down. It will be transformed shortly.
