How to build a lean-to glasshouse

Step 3. Make up the front wall

Make up the front wall frame according to the plan on the previous page.

Draw a pattern of the front frame on the working platform. Refer to the front wall frame plan on the previous page and draw the shape of the wall in its entirety (perimeter, plates, studs, noggings) onto the working platform using a chalkline or a pencil and straight edge. You will then have a full size pattern.
Cut the individual pieces to the pattern and rebate and trench accordingly. Refer to the following page for 'HOW TO - Cut rebates and trenches'.
