Classically designed by one of the nation's premier greenhouse builders is the Essex Devon Greenhouse. This 8X12 unit features the solid build and quality found in all Essex Greenhouse models. The Devon is an always popular choice from Essex, and it is sure to bring your family years of enjoyment.
It is available in a wide variety of sizes to fit any home to give plenty of room for growing or just relaxing. An optional interior wall is often used with larger units to allow owners to have a greenhouse in one side, and a hot tub or patio area in the other. An additional door for the opposite end of the greenhouse is also available.
The Devon includes a powered ventilation system that consists of a fan, a motorized wall vent, and a thermostat to achieve the optimum temperature. This means that you'll have everything you need to get started enjoying your greenhouse in one package.

All glazing is pre-taped from the factory and the panels are ready to use from the box, making assembly an easy process that can be done in as little as a day depending on how much help you have.

Roof Vents: Vents require one full roof panel on both sides. So one vent can be mounted easily in between two clear panels. A second vent could be added after the next clear panel. However roof vents are detrimental to air flow if an exhaust system is installed, as the fan will take air from the roof vents instead of the motorized vent.
Door Upgrade: The vinyl-clad solid core door that is standard on the Devon can be upgraded to double sliding doors with a large 47" opening.
Drop Down Door: Many customers prefer to place their greenhouse on a raised knee-wall, also known as a stem wall. This can be accomodated to a height of up to 36". The optional sliding doors can not be selected with this option.
Interior Wall: The Devon allows for an interior wall to be installed that has sliding doors and one 12" motorized vent. The wall is often used to separate the unit into two functional halves. For instance, one side can be a greenhouse and the other side is perfect for a hot tub.
Wheelchair Access: The vinyl-clad solid core door that is standard on the Devon can be upgraded to double sliding doors with a large 47" opening that have no step to allow for easy wheelchair access.
