Excuse me sir..yes you..I'm talking to you - the chap with the greenhouse, flatcap and fishermans jacket bursting with handy little tools poking out...your advice is much needed.
Im a idiot. There I've said it. An idiot with drills, hammers..manly stuff..but, like all men, I do have a plan..an..ideal...
I have a 6ft x 10ft greenhouse - yet to be erected. I have a concrete base. I want to lay two high ( flat ) breezeblocks and sit my greenhouse on top of this. I want to do this for two reasons, (a) my concrete base isnt level..hopefully my breezeblock wall will be! and (b) height. I always recall my grandads, hitting his head on the grape vines which ran everywhere/tied to every rafter..
My question(s), I have the greenhouse base. How do I secure this base to my breezeblock wall?
It seems to come with some poles which ideally I'd cement into the ground. Obviously I cant really do this now...so do i simply..drill holes in the base willy nilly..and raw plug it too my breezeblock wall? Use concrete screws? Your advice is needed please!!
I suppose I dont even need the base..but then..seeing as I have it..and it would give me a fraction more height. But..am I weakening my structure by using the base..on a breezeblock wall?
Finally, the breezeblocks themselves...assuming they need to be a certain type. I know they crumble easy!...
Any any men! out there ( women too ) with any answers to these little questions would be muchly welcome.
Thanks for your time, appreciate any replies.
