Preparing for the greenhouse

Over the last few weekends we’ve been preparing the site for our greenhouse, purchased with a grant from South Downs National Park.

First, we had to level an area large enough for the greenhouse:

Using a theodolite to get it right

Preparing the site

The greenhouse was delivered to site last Thursday. We did final preparations and started to assemble the frames at the weekend:

Greenhouse construction
Putting the front panels together in the rain
Greenhouse base preparation
Paving slabs on base in rain

As a storm was forecast we didn’t take things any further, not wanting our half-completed greenhouse to be blown away.
