A growing trend in the market is the utilization of greenhouses as showroom spaces for upcoming real estate developments.
These greenhouses are then transformed into community spaces, providing residents with years of enjoyment. Developers are actively seeking ways to engage with the future buyer, and incorporating urban agriculture into the property has proven to be a highly appealing feature that attracts both young families and older couples looking to downsize.
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
