I thought I'd start with the finished item then work back.
It has two opening windows, one on the end and one at the side and the benches for planting are all built in. We left the back wall without benched as grow bags will go there, we also opted to panel that wall as it just backs onto the garden fence anyway.
This was how it began, my husband drained the pond and cleared it out.
He cut a doorway at the side.
The beginning of the frame.
The bit of mesh you can see just inside the opening was to block the doorway when he wasn't working on it as the dogs wanted to go in there and use it like a toilet.
This next part took a bit of time, he was very thorough.
Starting the roof.
Making the benches.
Gravel on the floor.
A lick of paint.
Panelling on the back wall.
So on the roof he used dual wall polycarbonate and for the windows clear acrylic as it was supposed to be more efficient and safer than glass. He has also added a mini guttering and a small water butt. In total for everything he had to buy it has cost roughly £400, I think this is amazing given the quality of what he has built and the price of flimsy greenhouses in the shops, I would say this is more of a garden building. Of course there were many man hours put into this project but he has enjoyed the process.
