Building the greenhouse – foundations

 

Although a keen DIYer I didn’t fancy tackling foundations and brickwork, so we used a contractor for this part. The footings were dug about 18 inches deep, and concrete poured to create 9 inch thick footings (deeper and thicker for the rear wall) upon which subterranean brickwork would start. This depth means you don’t keep hitting a foundation strip when you are digging the border.
