The "Tim" greenhouse is 4m long by 2.5m wide with a porch which extends out by 1m. The porch isn't quite as wide as the rest of the building which brings the ridge down just a little - adding a little extra interest to the front.
I've built quite a few of these now - the first was for Tim who lives in Southampton.
This feels like a great spot for the greenhouse, virtually filing this corner of the garden - the only downside is this deep concrete path laid right through the middle of it. Rather than excavate all this and skip it I'll work around it. The path is deep enough to work as a foundation where the wall meets it but I've got to make sure my wall levels and flooring eventually meet the same height (thankfully the path is level).
Even after digging out the interior the ground was pretty loose. You can see how messy it is outside the greenhouse. So I fetched a load more material from the building merchants and opted for a full dry bed of sharp sand : cement to support the flagged flooring - there's no way that floor will ever move.
Now back to the workshop to finish off building the greenhouse and order up the glass. I'll back here in a couple of weeks or so.
