I can gather some pix, but in the meanwhile, mine is a 12 X 24' lean-to design, a Montecito kit from Santa Barbara Greenhouses.  Actually mine was the first lean-to unit they made in the metal design because I was replacing an earlier redwood and glass and needed a lean-to to go on the same footer.  It went in perfectly and for a while they had photos of my house on their web site.  All in all it's a pretty slick product and you don't need to be a rocket scientist to put the kit together.  (Full disclosure:  I actually am a rocket scientist, or was at one time anyway).  You can get any length in multiples of 4' and width in multiples of 3'.…

The base is a poured concrete footer with a single course of concrete block, topped with PT 2 X 8 planks and vinyl trim.  Heat is a vent-free wall-mounted heater attached to the brick wall of the house.  Note that you can only get away with vent-free if you're on natural gas - on LP there are traces of ethylene produced that are very damaging to orchids and many other things.  

I'll try to post a photo or two in the next few days.
