Little Cottage Company Colonial Gable Greenhouse
Build your dream garden and add value to your property, with our Value Gable Barns!
Note: For installation requests, please send us an email with the size and model of the kit you are requesting to be assembled at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can provide you with a quote.
Lead time for production is3-4 weeks. Your greenhouse will be delivered in 2-9 days depending on the distance from our site in Ohio to your home.
IMPORTANT NOTE: It is curbside delivery. Although our trailers and carriers most often come with liftgates to unload your shed, 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 highly 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 would weigh 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. Thank you for your understanding and for choosing Homestead Supplier!

Frequently Asked Questions
1. What size truck would deliver?
- As an example, for the 8x8 Colonial Gable Greenhouse Kit, it will be a semi-truck. Kindly email us at email@example.com for all other sizes/
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 purchase as there is a 3” skirting that falls below the bottom plate that is designed to wrap around the flooring. If the framing is larger than they would have to cut this 3” off.

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.
It needed a few tweaks when building but overall a good structure. The trim around windows were not primed and needed several coats immediately because it is pressed strand board. Bottom sill board should be pressure treated so it does not rot.
We were a little hesitant about the delivery, but everything worked out smoothly and the driver was able to deliver with liftgate and no issues. We then had to move the pallet to our backyard to the assembly site. My husband and I were able to put everything together over one weekend. (We had a concrete slab poured and already ready). We skipped the wood floor. The instructions were fairly easy to follow for the most part. We did run into a small hiccup with two of the wall panels fitting together properly but with a little adjustment we were able to make it work. The greenhouse is complete and all setup and everything looks really nice at this point. Now we just need to fill it :)

We haven't had the chance to put it together yet because of snow storm, but the front door panel was damaged with broken wood under the door. Looking at the directions, it looks like they will be easy to follow, so looking forward to the finished product, hopefully able to repair the damage under the door.
