The greenhouse design is great. The siding is somewhat flimsy so don't be disappointed. However, I'm sure the siding is better than the heavy, see-through material that a lot of greenhouses are made from. Fitting all the pieces together was a challenge. A lot of pieces to put together so it will take you some time. USE a Square and be very precise about it. We put a paver floor in before we put this greenhouse together so it makes the greenhouse look more like a permanent structure. It's a fun house!

I am completely amazing by this greenhouse. I must admit I was skeptical about purchasing this greenhouse due to the price, but I decided to go with it and I do not regret it! Its durable, spacious and beautiful! Completes the look with my vegetable garden! We just had a horrible thunderstorm up here in the Poconos and it stood strong through the wind and rain! Totally recommend this greenhouse!

Bought this. Very nice looking greenhouse. Assembles fairly easy. I put it on a 12x12 concrete pad. I highly recommend using 1/4" Tapcon anchors if attaching to concrete. They worked out very well for this. You drill a 3/16" hole with a masonary bit & screw the Tapcon straight into the concrete. Now to build some shelves.

The best way to get started is to arrange by sorting all the parts by the part numbers stickers. you should use plastic containers for the nuts & bolts. The Instructions are just pictures and you need to look carefully to determine the front from the back as you assembled. Be patience when assembling since there are over 90 steps and most have to be duplicated at least twice ( left side and right side) and panels 2- 5 times. Blue tape will keep your roof panels in place as they are inserted in tracks particularly if you use WD 40 for the ease of insertion. It is very important that the base is secured to the pad or ground and is squared before as a first step so everthing will fit.
The final result is a beautiful structure.

After 3 tries at receiving the chalet greenhouse I finally got what I paid for. The first green house came incomplete and I had to send it back to get my a refund. It took a month to get my refund back and then I ordered the greenhouse again but received a discount for the trouble. I received the greenhouse the second time and the box was so damaged that all the pieces were laying in the back of the UPS truck so I refused the order knowing that there would be damaged and missing pieces. So called Home Depot and the manufacture to get a refund again. I ordered the greenhouse for a third time after receiving my refund a month later and I received an additional discount as well. The third order arrived and the box was still damaged and a bag of parts was outside but I excepted it and put the greenhouse together. If it wasn't for the discounts that I received from Home Depot each time I had to return the item and the manufacturer also telling me that it was going to rush the third order at no extra cost, I would not have recommended the greenhouse. I ordered the first green house in July and received the last one in November. We had temperatures drop below freezing and a few of my plants got burnt because of the delay. Now all my plants are in the greenhouse and doing well. The greenhouse went up well with the help of my wife. Not all the parts went on smoothly the first time but they did go in after loosening and adjusting the frame parts then tightening everything again. I recommend buying the vent but you will have to buy additional Plexiglas to cover the vent hole because the plexiglas that comes with the vent kit is to small for the Chalet greenhouse. The doors do not sit well but I am building an extension on the the top plate of the door frame so it the door sits better in the frame. I would also recommend using lock washers or perforated lock washers for every bolt and nut that comes in the kit. The greenhouse kit does not come with any type of lock washers and with the wind vibrating and shaking the house the bolts due come lose. This is an architectural design flaw. I will go back and put these lock washers as I inspect the greenhouse monthly. The roof vents are nice but the locks are very cheap and are made of plastic. Another architectural design flaw. I will more than likely have to replace them in the summer with a metal vent opener. Right now I have the roof vents closed for the winter but since its suppose to be the warmest winter in Georgia history, I will more than likely have to use them more often than I would like to. I put a thermometer in the greenhouse and it stays a constant 80 degrees in the day time and 60 at night. I added an electric outlet and will add a wet light later. I also ran plumbing so I can put a sprinkler or mist system into the greenhouse. This I will do at a later time as well. The electrical and plumbing needs to be planned and added in before you put up the greenhouse depending where and how you intend to run those services. I built a 12x14 deck out of 2x6 and deck boards with drainage rocks first and then built the greenhouse on top of that. Deck was painted with red deck paint. 3 inch construction screws were used to fasten the deck boards down to the 2x6 frame. I screwed the house down to the decking through the holes in the metal frame of the greenhouse with 1 1/2 inch construction screws for added strength from the horizontal winds. I screwed the cable that comes with the greenhouse to hold it down onto the deck using the anchor bolts and brackets that came with the kit. Bolts were pre-drilled into the joist and then the bolts driven down. This prevented splitting of the wood and a stronger hold. I will buy additional cable saddle straps for the cable as the kit only came with 4 cable saddles and you should actually have two on each corner of the cable for a total of 8 cable saddles. Shelves were added to the back and side of the green house but I had to make spacers for the back corners as the vertical bracing did not leave you a way to mount the shelves. I had to add additional long bolts to the back wall step and then drill holes through the vertical bracing to match the shelve holes. The spacer bars in the two corners I cut out of 3/4 inch square aluminum hollow bars I bought at Lowe's and also drilled holes to match the shelves. I set my shelves at 36 inches which made it easy to put up and gave me enough room to have plants below the self and the misting system that I will add later. The instructions do not tell you that the horizontal brace that you put up when your assembling the back wall is temporary; towards the end of construction when you have to put up the vertical bracing you have to remove that horizontal bracing in order to mount the vertical bracing bars to the frame of the greenhouse. I used the horizontal bracing after taking it down to support my electrical outlet box and extension for the lights and lights switch. I cut the bracing to the measurement I needed, drilled bolt holes to match the frame, sprayed painted the brace black and then put it all together next to the front door. It all blends in as if it was part of the kit. The spacers bars I built for the shelves in the two back corners were also painted black and also blend into the frame of the greenhouse as if it were part of the kit. Insure you do a complete inventory of the kit and lay each piece out so it is easy to grab as you need it. The plexiglas needs to be marked as well, I used sticky notes to put the part number on them and did not take the "This side up" tape off of the plexiglas till I started sliding it into place. This ensures you do not mix up the plexiglas and damage it trying to force it into place. Parts should fit snugly into place especially the plexiglas. I used scotch tape to hold the plastic sleeves that go onto the top of the plexiglas because they kept fall off as I slid the glass into place. The clear scotch tape cannot be seen once the plexiglas is in place but it does make things easier to assemble. Double sided tape would also work if you have that. You will also need to purchase some silicone for the plastic gutter pieces that go inside the greenhouse to water proof them as you install them into place. I had some lying around so it was no big deal. The money I saved on the three discounts that I received helped with the purchase of the vents, shelves, and sun screen which my wife bought on Amazon and through the manufacture. That was about a $500 savings altogether.

When finished this green house is fairly solid, but I would take the many suggestions and make sure it is on a good solid base and secure it well to that base It will make all the difference. I put it on a base of deck planks tied them all together. When you open the box it is over whelming to look at the hundreds if not thousands of pieces. Most of the pieces are numbered but not all of them. There is no written instructions, it is all pictures. At times making it very difficult to understand what they want you to do, telling back from front of a piece some times. Make sure you follow the instructions completely step by step. Some times you want to jump ahead But don't.
If you skip a step you will find almost every time it will cover up or stop you from fitting another piece into place later. The side and roof panels are not at all what I was expecting, by themselves they are very thin, light weight and flimsy.
Make sure you not only keep the base foundation square and the vertical walls and roof square as you go up. It is very easy to get just a little out of square. If you do not the roof panels will not line up correctly and none of the trim gutter pieces will even come close to fitting correctly. It seems very flimsy during most of the assembly process, but by the time you put in all the little brackets and braces it ends up being fairly solid. I would not recommend for windy locations, even though the frame is solid
the panels flex when the wind blows.
It took my wife and myself three and a half days to put it together. It will try your ability to work with your partner, as at times we disagreed what the instructions meant. Many times we had to disassemble and reassemble some parts. All in all it gave up a good enclosure for what we wanted
at a fairly reasonable price.

The Greenhouse is beautiful, just what I was looking for. The only problem is there are no shelves to put plants on or adequate places to hang plants from. That means I have to spend more money to get these items I would have expected to come with the greenhouse.
