IMPORTANT NOTE:

Although our trailers and carriers most often come with liftgates to unload your greenhouse, there might be certain factors such as terrain, road clearance, or the weight of the pallet being too heavy for the liftgate to unload which might prevent that from doing so. We encourage you to have 2-3 people ready on the day of the delivery to manually unload the pieces on the pallet one by one. Each individual piece weighs around 1-100 lbs. so it is manageable to have one person on the trailer carry down the piece and the other receives it from the curb.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What size truck would deliver the greenhouse?
- Most kits are delivered by semi-trucks. Kindly email us at info@homesteadsupplier.com for further questions about delivery details to your specific address.

2. Do I need a pressure-treated wood frame to anchor the greenhouse into, or can I literally just assemble and place it on the gravel? Gravel to be the "floor". Can I just stake/anchor the greenhouse into the ground? Or does it even need to be anchored?

Yes, you will need some sort of frame or footer to attach the wall sections too. These can be heavy so the framing will have to be substantial. The walls cannot be assembled on the gravel directly.

Also please note that the size of the frame/footer needs to be the exact size of the unit they purchased as there is a 3” skirt that falls below the bottom plate that is designed to wrap around the flooring. If the framing is more significant than they would have to cut this 3” off.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Do you have to use all 3 shelves? Can it just be one sided or 2 sided?

    For any customization request, kindly contact us at info@homesteadsupplier.com

  • Can you get thermal Payne windows bronze or dark brown

    We currently do not offer any customizations for the windows on the Colonial Gable Greenhouse.

  • Are windows single pane or thermal pane?

    The windows are single pane and not insulated.

  • What material is the fasteners made of? Need stainless steel. Live in coastal area.

    Yes, the fasteners are made of stainless steel.

  • In several reviews, the weight of the panels is referenced…could you please tell me the exact weight of the panels for the 10’x12’ colonial greenhouse so that I can make sure we have enough help to remove them the trailer and move them around the property? Thank you!

    We've consulted with the warehouse production team and unfortunatelty, we don’t have an exact weight.  We would say that each panel is over 100#.  We have 2 adult males that package these units. 

  • Does this include the framing under the plywood floor if I don’t include the flooring materials?

    If you order the Greenhouse without the floor option, then there won't be any floor materials (including the framing under the plywood floor)

  • Would this be portable? Would different roofing be possible?

    The greenhouse kit is not portable by design and does not inlcude any materials to make it portable. We do not offer any roof customizations on this greenhouse kit.

  • If I don’t plan to assemble the unit until June 2024 can the pallets be stored outside over the winter without damaging the product? Is the packaging water tight?

    The packaging will HAVE to be removed to off load it from the FedEx Freight Trailer. It can be stored outside but you would need to re-cover it very well.

Don't Take Our Word For it! Here's What Our Customers Think:

Hats off to Homestead Supplier for superior customer service - these guys go above and beyond to answer all my questions. We purchased the Beach House shed for some extra storage but ended up using it as a backyard playhouse for the kids :). Now we have to buy another shed lol... The shed is great, sturdy, and would recommend to others.

- Sam B.

I found the buying experience to be far better than expected. Very easy to order, received immediate order confirmation, excellent customer service, order showed earlier than expected and in excellent condition. Would definitely recommend

- Dean G.

After 7 months of waiting for our pool to be completed, we are thrilled to have gotten our new shed built. It perfectly completes our backyard renovation. We love it! The instructions were clear, and the building is sturdy. We’ve had a number of inquiries about who we bought our shed kit from.

- Karen E.
