Just incredible and way beyond our wildest dreams.

I added 2-tier painted shelving either side of the main porch and over a "Monty Don" style potting bench. I was also asked to build a work table which can be moved outside or around as needed.
This was a large project for me. I really enjoyed it - it really feels like one of my best. Working for Anne and Chris was a real pleasure and great fun.

This was a tricky build - not least because of the sloping ground requiring an extra 3 courses at one end and compacting of material to bring the floor up to the new levels. But also the old barn wall was very uneven and sloped away from the greenhouse by over 2ft from the base to the top of the ridge. I was also hampered by rain throughout and lost 3 days of inactivity due to constant heavy downpours. The bright side was this job was very near home so I could carry on back in the workshop after having to leave site again each day.
But I got there and I'm extremely pleased with the end result and I'm sure the owner will have many happy years enjoying this accoya greenhouse. I added a row of cold frames at one end and a brick sided raised bed inside - which will be perfect for growing tomatoes direct into the ground. Instead of the usual paved flooring I was also asked to lay the brick setts which worked out really well in a t-shaped pattern - leaving a gravel edge for standing pots on or as a water run off from watering plants.
