Are lean to greenhouses separate from the house structure? We have a small lot but a great site for a lean to greenhouse. Concerned about zoning issue. If structure is separate, there is no issue but if attached might be a problem. Thanks

We’d first recommend speaking with your local building department and perhaps sharing our Hartley greenhouses brochure with them.  You could reference the closest general concept photos to what you had in mind for your project to get their feedback on any local codes.  Technically, a lean-to greenhouse design would be a separate structure attached to the abutting wall of your home.  The lean-to is usually designed around an existing door to the home so you can separate the greenhouse zone whenever you desire.  We can manufacture a Hartley greenhouse door to exit the greenhouse to your gardens.
