Design note: A level foundation is necessary prior to building, whether a sturdy deck or patio, or a simple perimeter foundation. Securely anchoring your greenhouse against heavy winds or other inclement weather is essential. Be sure to confirm which tie-down method is advised for your structure, foundation and climate.
San Francisco's building codes allow one-story detached accessory buildings smaller than 100 square feet to be built without a permit, but codes vary by region, so check with your county's department of building inspection.
Opaque wall treatments, provided by the greenhouse company, add privacy and sun protection.
The greenhouse is affixed to the garden in a familiar way, as if it’s always been nestled up in that shady corner.
