I would like to be a glow-worm.
A glow-worm's never glum.
Its hard to be downhearted when the sun shines out your bum.

    measure it properly as i've found that, in a typical 8' 6" x 6' 6" greenhouse that the angles are so steep as to really compromise the use of it... you're only able to walk down the middle stood up and the number of times i've walked into the glass on each side when gardening is ridiculous. i've now put mine on wooden 3" x 3" timber and it's still not high enough... now thinking of putting it on tailway sleepers or building a small wall to give me the satisfactory height i need...

    that said, you can just lay slabs and the weight of the glass (which is enormous) will keep it down without any fixtures...

    hope my experience helps...
