Morning all I would love some advice please
I have a dilemma I have started to dig my greenhouse base this weekend (can’t move now) back is killing me; I’m going to use some deep heat for that. Back to the predicament I’ve found myself in
The site where the greenhouse is going is very uneven sum 6” slope in 1.5 meters as you can see by my image of the area I have available for the greenhouse.
The advice I’m looking for is this, would you lay the greenhouse off the concreted base as shown by the wooden frame or would you lay bricks on top of the footings and start the greenhouse at the soil level to the left of the image.
If the first one is chosen I do intend to lay some slabs down and a reinforcement wall to the left as this is where the door is going as the right hand side has more sun light all day. I also plan to add slabs against the wall side. As for inside the greenhouse I plan to have soil beds with a stone and slab path in the centre, however if someone can give me a good argument why the inside should have a concrete base this is also a option I am willing to do.
On a plus side all the seals and “W & Z” clips have been bought
Water pip is also in place, by the end of the week I should have the electricity to the door area with RCD breaker in the conservatory as this is where the power source if coming from.
Eagerly waiting for you advice James
