Founded in 1999, Little Cottage Company is based in Millersburg, Ohio right in the heartland. Therefore the shipping time to certain western states is a bit longer than to the eastern part of the country.
This structure will ship via LTL freight directly from the factory in Ohio. We will email you tracking information as soon as it is available. When your order arrives at the shipping terminal closest to your home, the dispatcher there will call you to set up the delivery appointment, usually for the next day or whenever is convenient for you.
It is recommended to have two people available at delivery to help with hand offloading the truck. The length of some of the pieces make it ineligible for a liftgate delivery which would set everything onto your driverway. But hand offloading rarely takes more than 15-20 minutes as no piece weighs is exceedingly bulky or heavy.

Assembly Tips For Little Cottage Company Greenhouses
While the process of assembling a greenhouse might seem daunting, these kits are designed to be assembled by even parents with no prior building experience. Depending on your skill level, the size of the structure, and the number of options you order, putting together a kit can take 2 adults one full day.
Many customers opt to hire a local handyman or contractor to simplify this process, and the affordable price of the kits makes it easy to do this. They can be readily found online at sites like AngiesList or Yelp.
Site Preparation - Customers often tell us that the trickiest part of the the process is making sure that they have a good foundation upon which to build the structure. This base should extend beyond the dimensions of your playhouse by around 12 inches on each side. It is ideal to have the foundation be as level as possible. Each of the options mentioned here, crushed stone, a concrete pad, or concrete pavers, will greatly increase the longetiviy of your structure by improving drainage and air flow, thereby keeping the wood looking as new as possible.
Using a base of about 4 to 5 inches of crushed stone (¾" clean) is recommended to allow for the best drainage underneath the structure. Using 12 inches of crushed stone around the perimeter is best as it allows for even more drainage and keeps weeds at bay.
The crushed stone can be installed by digging out 4 inches of soil and then simply leveling the stone. Or the frame of the floor can be first made with pressure-treated 4" x 4" runners or landscape timbers and then filled flush to the top with crushed stone.
Another option is a concrete pad that could be installed as the base. A good installation should be perfectly level and the pad should be as close to ground level as possible. Little Cottage Company recommends that the concrete pad extend beyond each side of the structure by 12 inches. Concrete pavers could also be used as a less expensive and quicker alternative to the concrete pad.
