How to build a lean-to glasshouse

Step 5. Make up the low wall

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

Cut to length the top and bottom plates and rebate, trench, and chamfer where necessary (refer to the plans on the previous page).
Lay the plates apart in readiness for the studs. Cut the studs to length and rebate (for the glass) and trench (for the noggings) where required.
Refer to 'HOW TO - Cut rebates and trenches' on page 16.

Flip the frame over and brace it.
