If you are looking for the perfect, energy efficient backyard greenhouse, the Traditional Greenhouse Series is the ideal choice
Our most popular greenhouse design since the 1950s, our Traditional Greenhouses are a classic straight eave greenhouse kit that is a great choice for gardeners looking for higher energy efficiency. With the lower pitch roof, it simply has less air volume to heat and offers more energy efficiency.
With a 5/12 slope and 23-degree pitch, our Traditional greenhouse maximizes natural light year-round while minimizing heating costs, all thanks to its reduced volume and lower roof pitch. Plus, with the option for double, tinted and high-performance glass; twinwall, or fivewall polycarbonate, you can customize your Traditional greenhouse to fit your specific growing needs.
When selecting a site for your foundation, choose a flat, level surface where your greenhouse can be easily installed, stable and secure. Locate your greenhouse close to power and water, while also considering water drainage and easy access. Try to locate the greenhouse so that 6 hours of sunlight is available during winter months.

The rules for the permit process depends on your municipality but generally speaking, a structure less than 120 square feet that is not considered permanent does not require a permit. We are able to provide engineered shop drawings to secure the required permits, if necessary. For more information, please visit https://info.bcgreenhouses.com/en-ca/greenhousepermit
It's the best way to get started on the journey to your new greenhouse!
