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'.
Don't spare the metal strapping when tying the plates together or the studs to the plates.
Take notice of where the studs sit in relation to the bottom plate as shown in the pictures below.
