After placing an order, we send a complete instruction manual showing how to assemble your greenhouse using our kit. Our redwood greenhouse kits have the materials you need to build the greenhouse on your foundation — wooden frame, glass (or other optional glazing material), hardware, pre-hung door, caulking and instructions. Our greenhouse kits are partially prefabricated, with end walls factory assembled and shipped in large sections. The doors are pre-hung. Roof and side wall components are precision pre-cut, drilled for screws and ready for assembly before placing on your foundation or base wall.
Customers nearby Portland can have their side walls and roof sections prefabricated for a small fee. When shipped, side walls and roof sections are pre-marked for assembly with complete instructions and screws included.
We strongly recommend that the redwood frame be stained before assembling the greenhouse to avoid having to tape around glass and to finish all surfaces. Useful tools: hand saw, variable speed drill with Phillips screwdriver bit, hammer, drill bits, tape measure, 1” drill bit for door catch, screwdriver, pliers, adjustable wrench, glass cutter, level, and a good caulking gun. Additional details are found in the Installation Manual.
The video below shows an overview of what to expect when receiving and building your greenhouse.
