Most Greenhouses may require trimming of uprights for proper fit, because of the unknown grade of your land. Any upright over 12 ft. in length is spliced and labeled connect A to A, B to B, etc.
These instructions are for a 36” storm door and rough in for door is 36.5”.
- Number of uprights on the size house you purchase, includes door frame uprights. This is for 36” door opening. (Table A)
8’ or 10’ Door
- Number of uprights on the size house you purchase, includes door frame uprights. This is for 8 or 10 ft. door opening. (Table B)
- On front end-wall, measure to find the center of the house (Figure 2.1).
- From the center, mark 18.5” to the left and right of that point. This gives you the door frame size (Figure 2.1).
- Drive a 1” ground stake in each of these two points (will be approximately 36” apart).This is where your storm door will be (Figure 3.1).
Step 4 - SKIP THIS STEP IF YOU HAVE A 16FT GREENHOUSE
- From that point, if you have another upright measure 48” over and drive another 1”ground stake (Figure 4.1).
- Measure the distance between the base of these ground stakes and peak of the bow where they will be connecting (Figure 5.1).
- Cut your square uprights (if needed) to meet these measurements, slide square uprights over the ground stakes with pre-drilled side at the top (Figure 6.1).
- Attach brace bands over the bow and into the square uprights (Figure 7.1).
- Insert bolts through brace bands and square upright (Tighten completely after door is installed). (Figure 8.1)
- Place one self-tapping TEK screw through the brace band securing it to the bow on the inside of the house, (Figure 9.1).
Step 10 - SKIP THIS STEP IF YOU HAVE A 16FT GREENHOUSE
- You may install header supports at chest high, approximately 60” (Figure 10.1).
- Using TEK screws, install header with corner braces, see Figure 11.1.
- The installation of the rear end-wall is the same. However, header & upright spacing can be adjusted to accommodate a fan or vent if you choose to install one.
- Do not install door header for storm door until door is in place. When using a storm door you will use the frame of the door to seal the end film (Figure 13.1). Cut the film opening, place a 2 x 4 in the opening. Have your helper pull the film towards the inside of the greenhouse. Set the door in the opening. Push into place and shoot a screw or 2 to hold in position. Remove 2 x 4 and check for operation. If door opens freely, finish installing screws. Install door header, trim film around opening.
