    Got a bigger greenhouse, from ebay last June, this is just before dismantling:

    Took it down with my son's help and stored over-winter until I could clear some space, I've been gradually putting it up and with my daughter's help finished it this weekend:

    Started filling it up:

                  Thanks, I really couldn't have done it on my own, the glass is unwieldy and needs two. I took loads of photos when I dismantled it but there was still a lot of head scratching when it came to putting it back together. Luckily my daughter spotted that each part was stamped with it's part number so after that it was a bit easier.

                    Fab greenhouse! Funnily enough I have to pick a new one today. Having an outdoor office built with a new greenhouse attached-need to pick window types, shelving etc today as it goes back up to full price by the end of the week!

                        Any thoughts on whether those windows that open a bit like a blind/grill are any good @JWK ?

                          I have them in my greenhouse and yes I do think they are good for moving too warm air close to the ground.
                          I don't think they would be much use if where you are sighting the greenhouse it's very sheltered tho. I only have mine on 1 side and end of mine as the other side doesn't get the wind if this makes sense.Not as vital as roof openers (automatic are good and save you the task). I have 4 triple window openers in my 8ftx20. Definitely needed even up here is Scotland !

                            @JWK Green with envy, wish I had the space for a 12ft-er like that.

                            @Snorky85 Have a bottom louver on my 8x6 with an auto opener, they really do increase the airflow if you cannot leave the door slightly open.

                            Don't think it matters if you are sheltered, its the hot air rising in the greenhouse trying to get out of the top vents that pulls the cooler air in through the louver.

                              @JWK I am also green with envy! Wish I could have a greenhouse that size. Mine will be 8x10. And @silu - 8 x 20ft - can only dream! lol

                              Thanks @ricky101 @silu Sounds like it will be a good idea to get one - that greenhouse got soooo hot last year even with windows and doors open so I guess any extra ventilation will be a good thing. Will also def go for the automatic openers at the top too.
