I thought I had built this greenhouse before but Shirley wanted the same design - just a big bigger - so from now on it's going to be named after her. I didn't want to dream up loads of fancy aspirational titles for my greenhouse designs so I'll just call them after the first person who asks for each new design type.
This one is 2.5m wide by 3.4m long and 3.2m tall with the doorway in the centre but without an extending porch.
"Its finished and its beautiful, gorgeous, and I love the colour, Robin!!! Thank you. Can't wait to start taking cuttings and potting up on my potting bench. I'd add pictures but don't know how. Thank you again"
We'll find a way of getting updated photos on this blog in the spring.
Got back to Reading this week to complete this red greenhouse on white bricks. The colour is Eating Room Red (from the Farrow & Ball colour chart). I use the Impra Profilan Opac breathable polycarbonate paint product, as it's the best paint I have come across, and it can be mixed to any colour you can find.
This greenhouse is only 3.7m long but the height makes a lot of the space, This is the Yvonne greenhouse (click here to see the prices pager giving full details on this version) and includes everything you see ("foundations to finials") from the shelving, coat rack, toughened glass and guttering and cold frames.
Please look at the short (3min) video of this build to see more on the stages of this greenhouse's construction. I made two, 3-day, visits to complete this work - the days were long; working from 7:30am to 8:30 pm and most of the work was undertaken back at my workshop and painting shop back in North Wales.
