This shelf is well made and sturdy. The only problem is that it must attach to the metal sections of the greenhouse and there are so many brackets holding the greenhouse together, that there isn't a lot of space for the shelf. I had to install it off-center above my Palram work table. The best place would be the back wall of the greenhouse, but I have another shelving unit there. It will work great where it is. I will post a pic as soon as it warms up outside.
Not a 'snap' to assemble the greenhouse as Palram promotes. A file along with a good wooden mallet for my greenhouse was needed from the beginning. I'm not a novice when it comes to construction work and it still took two full days to assemble! But, once assembled the greenhouse seems sturdy enough.
We put this up in February when we had some unseasonably warm weather for Ohio. Two days after we finished the assembly, we got snow and ice. Last week we had 50 to 60 mile an hour winds that took down several trees in our horse pasture. I kept looking out the window expecting the greenhouse to be a mangled mess, but it is still standing without even a scratch. We did anchor it down to a cement pad with special screws (purchased at the local hardware) and the brackets that were provided. It took us about ten hours over two days to finish the assembly. The directions are difficult to understand (pictures/no words) and if it was just me putting it together, I would have thrown it across the yard. My husband is more patient and figured it out. We made some mistakes with which screws to use and had to move some brackets, but no major issues. The plastic seems thin but it holds up well and the one day it was 27 degrees outside the greenhouse was at 80 degrees! My roof window arrived bent, but I called the number on the box and they had me email some pics and sent the replacement window in two days. I will post a picture after this batch of snow melts. Can't wait to start working in this greenhouse!
