Winter Greenhouse

November 5, 2008

With the winter months right around the corner, now is great time to consider expanded the plant palette in your outdoor space with a year round green house structure. Greenhouses can be simple home made structures or elaborate buildings. Sturdi-Built Greenhouses are a little bit of both; beautifully crafted, but assembled by you!. Sturdi-Built has been be selling greenhouse kits to homeowners like you for over 45 years.

Before you decide on the greenhouse style for your outdoor space, you must first consider where and how it will be located. Greenhouses typically work best when orientated to the southeast to take advantage of the low southern sun in the winter. You must also consider proximity to your home, utility extension if you plan to provide light and heat and building permit requirements.

There is also the question of materials. Greenhouse are available in wood metal and plastic frames. We like the look of the Sturdi-Built Nantucket model which is framed with natural redwood. The Nantucket green house features an asymmetrical roof, double doors, arched glass and decorative finials and scallops along the roof edge. The Nantucket kit starts at $11,100 for the 8’x12’ model.

The complete kits comes with everything you need for installation in your outdoor space.
