How to build a lean-to glasshouse

Wood you will need

If the wood that you source is a slightly different size (width and thickness) to the wood used in this project, it doesn't matter. Just make adjustments to suit.

Type of wood to use: treated softwood (or similar)

Note: The stock sizes given for the frame are the 'nominal' sizes. The 'actual' (true) sizes will be less once the wood is dressed (surfaced, planed, seasoned).
The metric measurements (mm) are given first followed by the standard measurements (inches) in brackets.

Stock sizes and lengths - overall amounts

Individual section quantities are given on the next page.
Note 1: Measurements are given first in millimeters (mm) followed by inches in brackets ().
Note 2: All lengths given are slightly oversize. Measure and cut exact length as you go.
Note 3: 'random' (mentioned below) is the wood allowance for the nogging (blocking). Measure and cut as needed.
