One of my first jobs, once I'd put the structure up, was doing all the leadwork where the greenhouse abuts the brick wall - no chance of doing this once glass goes in. I used Code 4 lead which should last forever, treated with patination oil to prevent staining.
This whole greenhouse is made from accoya. It won't warp or twist, shrink or swell in weather and has a guarantee of 50 years. It's also beautifully smooth and uniform whilst having the beautiful grain and feel that wood has.
I built all the shelving and added a moveable workbench. The bricklayer had made the walls very thick, which meant I had to increase the width of my wallplates, but it's really nice having the extra width inside - for pots or even sitting.
