    That's a nice big greenhouse, no experience of Eden I'm afraid but maybe someone knowledgeable will be along soon. Is it the first greenhouse you've built.

    The assembly instructions are on line so have a read of those and see if they make sense!
    Is it this one? http://www.edengreenhouses.com/pdf/h...structions.pdf

    Thank you for link, that's great
    The instructions fixed on one of the boxes were the same diagrams but in french.
    Just wondering what's the catch, that the price was reduced so much, no doubt time will tell

    Are you going to have a paved floor or grow in borders?

    Plan at present is use exsisting strong decking from previous owner with extra feet added and then use containers, buckets, etc so can swap the soil easily and move things outside in summer. If decide to go for some permanament soil on a part thought could easily cut a section out decking and make ineffect a box below with wood sides and plastic sheet on top of the wood sides to stop the wood rooting

    Is your decking well supported? GHs with toughened glass are very heavy and you wouldn't want it to subside.

    Good point VC. But the previous owner had a small hot tub on this part of the decking, which from my googling would have weighed 1000kg + The greenhouse is 371kg from the shipping invoice so would seem ok but will add a few extra dense block pads underneath to be safe rather than sorry, when move the decking boards to remove the gaps
