    Well as the roof hasn't been replaced yet I could always re-do to fit a 2' glass but you're right in the transit problem :(

      (Distance aside) glass travels OK if vertical. This was a 30' x 10' deconstructed :) in the back of my people greenhouse :) carrier

      Good idea on the redesign the rebuild for 2' widths ...

      If you can make use of the glass, and figure a way to transport it, you are welcome to it. The bigger greenhouse project got here in a Pallet Box (the sort of thing that large floor tiles come in) ... but there was a forklift to load it with at that end, and my friendly local farmer's telescopic loader this end to get them off.

        My apologies @Kristen, I don't think I thanked you for that offer :redface:

        I haven't really made any progress as other projects keep cropping up but I doubt I'll get round to the re-roofing this year afterall. I have however, started a partial teardown - the larger section is now removed revealing some lovely damaged wall to fix!

              The bit that's still standing will get covered with a clear tarp over winter so I can at least shelter a few things
