Very nice, though I don't think the bowl of water you've placed outside will go down too well. :)

Did you follow plans or work from your own design?
It was my own design. done in sketchup.
But it was based on a photo my wife had in a brochure where the same size Greenhouse was over £11,000.00 :shock:


Thanks

Mike

Do you have a material cost breakdown?

What timber did you use?

Looks great by the way!

well my big mistake was using bendy Pine! it was rubbish and caused a lot of grief.
but it was cheap !
the whole lot of timber was about £450
The Guttering cost £450 ish
the glass plus a glazier was £770 :shock:
Paint about £90
so about £1700-£1800 but a lot nicer than I could have bought for anything near that money.

I would not do it in pine again though :roll:
