Well I took loads of photos of my greenhouse this week - but none of them compared to the ones my customer sent me the day after I returned home! So here it is in all it's glorious colour with many thanks to @gardeninggavin. Please see Gavin's gardening Instagram account for more amazing gardening pictures.
It's the quality of all the materials which really gets me on this build. The greenhouse is made from accoya (50 year guarantee) with cast iron door furniture from Suffolk Latch Company and the best paint from Germany (Profilan) which should last over 10 years before you need to touch it up, and Grade A cedar shingles and cladding, Sandstone flooring and quaity Marley uPVC guttering which should never degrade. This building is going to be here for a very long time.
A lot closer to home for me this week. My customer in Chester wants a 2.5m x 2.5m greenhouse which just fits the area of garden he has in mind. It's still a generous width but the really bonus comes with the height which will easily accommodate the 2m high door I'll build and up to the roof line at 3.2m high.
I added a brick sided raised bed to one side - which a perfect place to plant tomatoes without worrying too much about them drying out if you are away for a few days.
It's so rare for me to make a second visit to complete the base - it's only happened a couple of times in all these years - and here I get two right after one another. This week is another straight-forward visit to complete the high walls, lay the inside flooring and brick sided raised bed.
