The product description says the kit includes 1 full length upper shelf and 1 full length lower shelf. Does it mean the shelves are only on one side of the greenhouse? Would be ridiculous, would it? Thank you for the explanation.
Asked by: LJC777
Sorry, I am totally lost as to why 1 set of shelves is "ridiculous": 50% of our customers want no shelves at all, and only 5-10% buy an extra set for the other side. Most people want the pen space to overwinter their out door potted plants on one side. If you have any more questions feel free to call us: 877-760-8500 ext 701.

Riga 9 ft. 8 in. x 17 ft. 2 in. German Hobby Greenhouse is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extraordinary Design This is a major piece of fine equipment. I spent a lot of time reading and researching various greenhouses and this one seemed to have a number of details well thought out. It is so well made that if you pay attention to the directions it goes together perfectly. We have installed it on a concrete driveway and it stayed pretty warm through a cold Utah winter with 2 minor little heaters. We live in an extremely windy place and the special safety wires for the vents have held up well. We even installed an extra one for the open door. The space is great and we even built a feral cat shelter into the back left corner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Greenhouse We bought the Riga 10x17 and while it presented a number of difficulties to a single person putting it up (I did get around an hours worth of help when I absolutely needed it) I managed to get it all assembled and very pleased with it. We had power added and installed 15 sq in paving stones over a 2 - 3" bed of playground sand that helps to hold in the heat and it stays above freezing when the weather outside doesn't and warms nicely to the 60's during mid 30's outside. Never did really get the thing going, just some lettuce right now, but hopefully will have more time in the spring to really deck it out as we had planned!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Riga Rocks even in Duluth, MN We have had our Riga greenhouse thru a couple Northern Minnesota winters now. It has stood through bitter cold and blowing winds (that took down many trees!). Greens that finally freeze in late-December miraculously revive in mid-February for fresh spinach, kale, even romaine lettuce. In summer, we do tomatoes, cukes, peppers, all the things that being perched next to Lake Superior has made so difficult in the past. This is a very well-designed greenhouse; we assembled it with just two people. I recommend getting a third person to help. The assembly instruktions (poorly translated from German), are a bit of a challenge. But it does all go together, and stays together, for great growing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product, excellent customer service! I can't say enough good things about this greenhouse. Quality materials and careful engineering made for an investment that has increased my quality of life! The manual, because of the German/English language barrier, is confusing, but the videos provided were very detailed and got us through the construction process, even with some modifications we made. Best part was the excellent and super-responsive customer service. These folks want you to love your greenhouse and will help you through whatever questions arise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy, well designed. This is a high quality greenhouse that can be erected without any special skills or tools. The included DVD is perhaps easier to comprehend than the written directions. I would highly recommend the kit that includes the foundation frame and the shelves. I installed a Southern Burner greenhouse heater which works very well, and is overkill for a structure this size. We use it mostly to start plants in the spring, but it is relatively easy to keep warm, should someone choose to grow all winter. Very pleased overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You're gonna like it! I've had the Riga greenhouse now for at least 4 years, no sign at all of any problems. It did go together very straightforward and I feel paying a little more for a quality product was a good choice. If we'd had the room, I sure would have gotten a larger one, but this does just fine. I did add a thermal opener for the back window, in addition to the roof vent, these things sure get hot in the summer, even with shade cloth. This is a quality product backed up by the quality company that imports them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best retirement present ever! I live in Downeast Maine and bought my Riga greenhouse 10 years ago. It provides vegetables and herbs from March through November. When some panels showed deterioration last year, I called Exaco and found that they were originally installed with the UV coating on the wrong side. Exaco sent me replacement panels just for the cost of shipping and said that the Riga now comes with UV coating on both sides. I think that is customer service "above and beyond!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just the right size My husband and I really love this greenhouse. We were looking for something that would fit in our small backyard yet give us enough space to grow seed starters. This greenhouse is very well made and we use just a small milk house heater thru the winter and it stays quite warm in there. We have had this for about 4 years and it has exceeded our expectations. We have quite hot summers where we live and the only parts that need replaced since we bought it is the extended arm for the gable end window to hold the window open and a couple of the flat panels that the seed trays sit on. We also love the automatic vent openers on the 2 windows, it saves a lot of running back and forth to open and close according to the weather, and the large black seed trays that came with it hold a lot of plants/seeds in a small area. Overall we are very happy with our purchase.
