Glasshouse base dimensions

Overlapping sills demonstrate need for accuracy when building bases!

Exact base dimensions for the Redpath Belmont and High Eave aluminium glasshouse models. It is important to build the bases exactly to size as shown, as the base aluminium strip rail “hangs” over the outer edge of the base boards. The base should be level across the buildings width.

The base may be made from timber, blocks, sleepers, bricks or a concrete nib, it is a personal choice of style and appearance, however the base must be well secured to the ground as the glasshouse frame will be relying on it for security in high winds.
Often the base may be 150mm tall, - which helps lift the overall height of the Redpath glasshouses.
If soft ground (peat, sand, loose soils) etc. prevail, then take extra care to ensure that the base is secured with deeper ground anchors (pegs, reinforcing rod etc.)
Check with local council "if" a building permit is required for your particular sized glasshouse prior to construction.
