The greenhouse ket arrived in good shape! We will be able to say more after we assemble it. So far, though, the process has been very smooth!
The people at greenhouse nation and also at exaco are very helpful and thorough with answering questions prior to our purchase. We would definitely purchase here again and recommend to others!

Dealing with this company has been a nightmare. i waited months from when I ordered to receive the greenhouse. upon receipt, FedEx had punctured the glass crate destroying all the glass. i was advised by Santa Barbara Greenhouses to accept this shipment as is and they would ship me another crate of glass. after 2 weeks I find out that they have done nothing. they did not make a claim with Fedex and did not ship me any replacement crate of glass. Tired of waiting, i had a local glass company make the glass for me. SB refused to make a claim to Fedex to reimburse me and told me it was my problem. I hired a contractor/carpenter to build the greenhouse for me. he found the entire run of wood cross beams in the roof were cut 3 inches too short. I called SB and they defensively said ghey dont make mistakes like that and once again told me it was my problem. Other problems with the kit were; the door frame was a inch too short for the door and made for the opposite side of the GH than I ordered from them. Their is no where to install the fan as no wood frame parts were accounted for nor was there a cut out in the wall. Get this, they haven't updated the directions in 30 yrs and are as clear as mud. only a very talented, finishing carpenter to figure out this kit. All in all, the greenhouse was built but cost me almost $2000 in local glass and wood replacements and an extra $2000 in labor cost. I would never recommend to anyone that the buy from this company. NOT because of the mistakes and damages. That can happen to any company. I wouldn't buy from them because how the treat their customers after the sale. You can't count on them to make anything right or to do anything to make sure you get what you paid for. They are the very example of the worst customer service you could ever receive in a retail transaction. BUYERS BE WARE!!!!

It is a very nice greenhouse but extremely hard to put together and if you don't get it right then you have holes and gaps. You almost will need t hire a professional. Instructions are good but could have some written detail.

My carpenter friend and I built this well packaged and shipped greenhouse kit in Late Sept. . It is so well planned out from packaging, building instructions, the video, and the actual cedar product itself. We would suggest those who want to preserve or stain the greenhouse, treat the rafters first before assembling. Although can be treated after, it is so so much easier if you treat these particular pieces before assembly. Bottom line is it is a beauty once built and gets so many raves ! Posted completed pics of greenhouse on FB and have received numerous requests for links to this greenhouse.
why Trust Verified Reviews?
Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.
Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.
As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:
Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.
Unverified Reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.
So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
