...a very robust greenhouse, was quick and fairly easy to build, and had some great customer supp...

Bought a Jr Vic 24 it was very easy to build. Took me 2 weeks only working 2 to 3 hours a day with like 5 days of no work due to being rained out. Everyone at Exaco that I talked to over the phone or in emails were very nice and were able to either answer my questions or get me to someone who could.

Couple delivery problems but eventually got all the items. First problem wasn't even Exaco's fault the freight company that delivered it to me didn't notice that it was 3 boxes and only gave me the glass at first but I got the other 2 boxes a few days later. Second I was missing the seed tray but Claudia sent that out right away after I told her it was missing.

The instructions are just pictures so sometimes it was a bit hard to see what to do. Even the video online was just a few animated slides again no narration not even a little bit of ambient music. Sometimes thought the video was buffering cause it lingered on a shot for so long and there was no sound. This is where I'm removing 1 star. Although I made it through the build it would have been much more helpful to have instructions with both pictures and worded instructions on what you're supposed to do.

Few hard points of the build. First was where the roof brace next to the wind supports there is no room so the support has to either be on top of the wind braces or below either way getting your fingers in there to try and put on a nut was difficult. Second the sliding glass door has a few self tapping screws in the bag but the head on them is huge making it so the sliding glass door couldn't be put on with them there. I just went to my tool box and found some flat head self tappers and put those in place and it worked really well. Finally the clips they provide in with the shade cloth kinda suck. They are good for the top of the greenhouse but not the sides, they are just a bit too long and will catch on the screws holding the center supports and then pop out of the plastic loops holding them. I just replaced them with some zip ties and now the shade cloth opens and closes much easier and without the shade cloth coming undone. I also ran out of the crescent shaped rubber seal but again I was offered more of it which is pretty cool that the people at Exaco would offer that.

Amazingly the part I thought would be hard, and was a little worried about when I decided to build it myself, was really easy. Putting the glass on was easier than building the frame. I was worried I'd be breaking glass and having to order more but the tool they give you made moving the glass around and setting it in place rather quick and painless.

All in all it feels like a very robust greenhouse, was quick and fairly easy to build, and had some great customer support when needed and because of that I'll add back in the star I removed before because their service is just that helpful. 5/5 stars from me. Big thanks to David, Claudia, Lorraine, and Alan over at Exaco.

Questions & Answers

Ask a Question
  • Can this J-VIC 24 greenhouse be mounted on a wall and have the door open at ground level?

    Yes! ALL the Juniors now come with an option for mounting on a 15.75” high knee wall or ground mount. All parts are included in the kit.

  • I have a pony wall built, do you have a door drop kit for it?

    There are 5 basic cases when it comes to building this greenhouse on an stem wall / pony wall, that depend on the exact wall height:

    12" or shorter - The kit already includes parts needed to build a drop door in this case, except the small glass transom piece which you will have to order locally.
    More than 12" but less than 15 3/4" - That require more discussion, because the top frame of the door and the top p[late of the greenhouse wall may interfere.
    Exactly 15 3/4" - The kit already comes with parts and glass to build a drop door in this case.  The top of the door will be the top of the wall, so that in this case the door can be on the gable end or the side wall.
    More than 15 3/4" and less than 18" - That require more discussion, because the top frame of the door and the top plate of the greenhouse wall may interfere.
    18" or higher - The kit already includes some parts needed to build a drop door in this case, except the small glass transom piece which you will have to order locally.  In addition, you will need to order a separate drop door kit and the low threshold kit, to give the door a frame.  The hinged door comes with a full frame, so no low threshold kit is needed in that case.

    Sliding door considations with a wall / drop door:
    * The sliding door slides on the outside of the greenhouse and the wall, so the greenhouse frame and wall outer surface must be well aligned so that the door's brush seal will slide to open and close the door, and seal when the door is closed.  
    * You can always upgrade to a hinged door instead of the sliding door, as long as the opening in your pony wall is 27 3/4" or wider.  This allows the greenhouse to be set anywhere e.g. the center of the pony wall.  The hinged door comes with a door stop to use to prevent the door from hitting the wall (e.g. to hold it at 90 degrees). 

    When the pony wall is 15 3/4" or higher, the top of the sliding or hinged door will not intrude up into the gable - it will be at or below the top plate of the side or end wall of the greenhouse, so the door can be located in the gable end or along a side wall.
