How do I build a conservatory on an exsisting raised patio?

Postby noodlex » Mon Jun 07, 2010 10:55 pm

Hi I have a raised 2-3ft brick walled paving slab patio on the back of my house with steps going down to the garden, Please can anyone tell me how I can secure a conservetory base to this patio or indeed how to structure a base? Can I just brick on top of the patio? I know it sound dumb but dont know what to do :(

No you need foundations, patio will have to come up.
