My Wind Bracing has a gap at the Bow, what do I do?
Use a hammer to slightly bend the end to eliminate the gap.

I only have 1 run of purlin, what do I do?
24 foot and wider greenhouses get 3 runs of purlin. Smaller sizes only get 1 run of purlin.
How do I install my storm door?
Please read the End Wall section.
I do not have enough wind strapping, what do I do?
It is not necessary to install strapping in between every bow. Just equally space what you have. You have been provided the proper amount.
What if my site is unlevel, what do I do?
Find the highest corner and use a string level to make sure all ground stakes are level. You may need to back fill with soil or add extra boards. If you do not want your house level build it on the lay of the land. Keep in mind ground stakes should be driven in the ground 24 inches.
