    Love this! Love this! Love this! This has become my warm space to sit among the flowers and smell the herbs I have growing, like my basil and thyme! It is close enough to my kitchen entrance to snip a few and bring it in to cook! I didn’t know this existed. This is like an extension or a conservatory but at the fraction of the cost of that and you have a greenhouse connected to your home that stays a pretty good temp all year!

    The price was right for what I was planning. As I said, it would have run a lot more if a conservatory was built so I am well happy.

    You will need some help with assembly though because it takes some drilling in the fascia. Each home is different so check it out with the company first.

    I bought this because my wife has always dreamed of having one of these. This greenhouse actually can be entered into by going out our back door. It is nice to get away and watch the sunrise in it. My wife and I love this new spot and we are always in it watching our plants, having morning conversations, and having some coffee. I even go out there sometimes at night just to relax after a long day at work. This was the best thing I have invested in so long. I like the fact that this is UV resistant and is built with solid construction. Those to qualities are what basically sold me when it came to buying this.

    I have always loved sitting outside in the rose garden, but I hated the bugs torturing me. I looked around for something I could attach to my house, but the ones I found didn’t meet my expectations.

    I came across this lean to Greenhouse and decided to purchase one. I have loved relaxing outside in the same atmosphere I did before, but I no longer have to worry about the insects. It is also relaxing on cool days, because it attracts the sun making it warm inside.

    I ordered the sunroom in case we want to have a family evening of relaxation. It has plenty of room to sort my roses around the edge and my little family to spend quality time in. You can’t beat the price, because it’s a good quality sunroom. They delivered it quicker than I expected.

    I got this one for my husband as he really likes planting. But we were disappointed to see that it had a few problems. The size first of all was not big enough. What we saw in the pictures before purchasing seemed a lot bigger and we thought that it would fit at the back side of our house. But now that we have it, it looks smaller. Also I do not know whether it is a manufacturing defect or not, but the ventilation windows’ hinges seem to open and rattle every time I open them. I would also want the framework to be rust resistant as our one started to show some rust on the frame’s surface. The price was alright but the quality could have been better.

    I am an avid reader. I enjoy reading in an outside environment. I searched and searched for something that fits my expectations. I liked the stylish look of this greenhouse and knew it would make the perfect sunroom for reading late into the night. It is the best addition I could have made to my house. I like the vent in the roof for them hot days or nights. The stylish design makes it stand out to guest. The space is big enough for my bookcase and it keeps my books enclosed keeping them from being damaged. I also had the room to put my futon. I thought the price was a little high, but decided I had to give it a chance. I am glad I did purchase it, because it was worth everything I paid for it. I am elderly so I needed something to protect me from the sun and this protects me from damaging UV rays which cause skin cancer. It was easy and quick to setup. I am very pleased with the durable product I received and the great customer service the company has. My shipment was delivered in a timely manner and my questions were answered in a respectful timely manner.
