There are now two versions of the Harbor Freight 10x12 greenhouse being sold; the older, original version, like mine, is Item 93358. Our dilemma comes mainly in where our greenhouse is! I can see the new design for the Part 52 panel connector in the new manual, and it does look like a vast improvement! I like the flexibility of being able to remove others...by removing screws and clips...but the window panels represent a special problem, when they are loose in the frame.Sorry you have the same problem I did. Thanks again!Lori. I was wondering if you had replaced your wall panels. I also tried growing for market magazine and google adwords and have now started shipping them to a few places around the country at a price and structure that I thinks puts HFGHs to shame. I’m worried that your doors won’t operate correctly, and your panels may not fit into the openings, if the frame has somehow been assembled so things are a bit out of square. Wow Darren, that's a shame. I am going to Harbor Freight tomorrow to buy mine. It seems it may actually be easier and cheaper to custom design and build one's own greenhouse.... Hello Peter, and thanks! Still, we’d worry about the time and effort to build and tear down the structure within the time restrictions of a trade show. The end measuring 23 3/8 inches is the end that goes against post 7 and against Crown Beams 8 & 9. How can i stiffen this up so it wont collapse on me. For example, the aluminum stock sold at the box stores is harder than the kit material. The top and bottom holes are positioned so the center of the hole is 3/8" from the edge. Another kind Harbor Freight greenhouse owner has just alerted me that they've made changes to some of the door parts, and my (older) manual actually doesn't even list the part 81 that you mention. (Maybe it depends which operator you get, but of course that's no excuse.) • At least two assistants will be necessary during assembly. The old ones have been a point of frustration, for some owners.I do hear comments about the parts in the manual not quite matching the parts in the kits. Any suggestions?? Their current manual cites the same 90 day warranty. If someone, anyone can post the length and width along with the four hole placements, I would dearly appreciate it! I encourage you to consider this option because you will get a cheaper and much sturdier greenhouse! IMPORTANT ASSEMBLY TIPS • Assemble Bolts with their heads facing the outside of the greenhouse, unless stated otherwise. That can be done too, but I know of occasions when a breeze sprang up, and tumbled the whole greenhouse across the yard. Hi Dave,So, you have the newer version of the kit, and I can see the accompanying manual does state the diagonal measurement to be 15'5". I am in Georgia. I built my first greenhouse, about 8 x 10, for maybe $200; and the second one, 10' x 16', for under 500, including recycled pavers on the floor, a set-tub, and benches. I ordered the extra panel glazing clips as you recommended. I built a HFGH 10x12 a couple years ago and have been working on combatting the high temps in the summer and cold in the winter. Hello Natalie; I'm not familiar with this problem. To access these threads and photos, copy and paste this URL into your browser window, for the GardenWeb greenhouse forum: http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/strucs/ and do a search for “snow load brace” and a second search for “midwest snow storm”.Because your situation is a little challenging (deck, heavy snow, adding doors) you might consider posting some of your questions to the GardenWeb greenhouse forum as well, to see if others can be more helpful.Sheri, Hello Art,Congratulations! "One other thing...when learning, try using on one of the wall studs that is not a corner post. We measured ours for you.Part 48 is 4 3/8" long, and 1 1/8" wide; u-shaped, with small side flanges that hug the sides of the vertical posts. Hi Sheri,How much room at the minimum do you think is needed between the GH and another structure, in order to allow for ease of installing the panels and future maintenance?Thank you! I'm wondering if this might be a new kerfuffle with the newer version of the 10x12. Since you're only nipping the face of the stud, it doesn't affect strength at all. My concern is the strength of the base. There are two different kits, and according to my manuals (I have both) there could be a slight difference in roof panel sizes, between the two kits. Karen S. asks: I just bought a 10x12 Harbor Freight greenhouse. So feel free to check out my site and thanks again for the suggestions. dwest, I don't think that would be a bad idea at all (to put a bolt and nut back in the hole, after you take a piece off. I hope this is a bit helpful.Sheri. Mine still work, but they can be fussy, after 8 years. I really hope you don't have a large plant collection you need to winter through in the greenhouse. Hello Karen,Harbor Freight does not sell the clips on their website, or in their stores (no idea why.) I've successfully attached vertical supports 28 and 29, but I can't get 24 and 25 to come together. We used large screws, the type designed to secure metal roofing to a wooden frame, the largest size we could find. I'm always appreciative when folks post details about the modifications they made; it helps everyone who reads here. I live in Western Washington, our climate is pretty mild, but we do get some good winds on occasion.The plan is to screw the new panels and to caulk and screw the roof panels. Thanks! Then, click the top "foot" into the track. I've had the GH in place since Oct 2014, much thanks to everyone and OP for this blog, helped tremendously! (Good thing gardeners are generally stubborn, patient, determined types, eh?). We would probably add the interior wooden boards again, partly for looks, but wouldn't be too worried about omitting those, either. Thanks, Terry a.k.a. The diagrams are also good. 11/27/2020 - $429.99 07/01/2020 - $399.99 08/01/2019 - $329.99 04/15/2019 - $299.99 04/12/2019 - $199.99 )Now that we know exactly how the thing goes together, my husband and I think we could probably erect another Harbor Freight 10x12 in three long days...IF the foundation was already built, with no plumbing, electrical, etc. This watertight, reinforced polyethylene greenhouse provides off-season protection for your garden plants. It was probably about three months total from the time we started to having the exhaust fan, thermostats, shadecloth, and sink in place, but we weren’t trying to hurry at all. i want to put the opening to my sliding glqass doors, need to know if i can put a door in the side to get in from outside. The side diagonal support struts were missing the holes for attaching them to the wall studs, so I had to drill them. Unfortunately the structure of this greenhouse is fairly flimsy even when fully assemble. )I can send you a photo of Part 48 installed, if you will drop me an email at email@example.com, if that helps.Sheri. is the pitch of this greenhouse steep enough to shed the snow. Did you retrofit your GH with these additional parts?Many thanks for your help!!! We constructed our 10 x 12 greenhouse in July 2009. I don't know how you could modify the doors to work.Another idea would be to consider building the greenhouse in a "pit" so you step down into it, but this idea is also beyond my level of experience, I'm afraid. Glad you ordered extra clips. We don't find the frame to be too flimsy, after the modifications suggested by others (and repeated here.) I have rebuilt and reinstalled the windows (vents) three times and still do not get them to "hinge" properly. Just thought it might be easier to order with that number. The front base is now totally different and the doors work very smooth. We have just built ours and found your documentation incredibly helpful. These are the only panels I've secured with caulk in the entire greenhouse. He was dead wrong.) Gorgeous Greenhouse Polycarbonate Panels Home … Lawn And Garden. I cheaped out, and reordered from Harbor Freight. So, I’m hoping you can loosen and/or remove some bolts, and possibly remove some diagonal braces, and try to find out which pieces have gotten out of square.Problems can also be caused by starting with a foundation that is not quite level. Nothing prettier than a greenhouse full of orchids (I will admit, even prettier than a greenhouse full of cacti. I doubt our greenhouse would have survived long either, if I hadn't read many Harbor Freight greenhouse tips in the Gardenweb greenhouse forum. Time to mess with them.So if the greenhouse is a free standing fixture, it has to be no higher than 7 feet.But what is you extended the foundation on the rear of your house and then built the greenhouse as part of your house?Then it is not free standing but an extension of your house. Hopefully one of them will work. Could you please give an update as to how you solved the problem?Specifically, I would like to know:Did Harbor Freight replace the panels?Where did you find replacement panels and cost?How are the new panels are aging with respect to the original HF panels?I would like to thank you for your continued support of this blog. It was the only panel I've had come loose in ten years, so I'm a believer!I hope you can locate your panels. The bolts were easy to replace and the brackets were easy to make. Exactly! I've had them tell people that the clips are no longer available before, and when I urged them to call back, they were able to order them with no problem at all. this will give you the correct orientation. Come spring I will most likely replace them with more Harbor Freight panels, since that is by far the cheapest option, and I managed to get six years out of the walls (six and a half, by spring 2014. Their product had a ten year warranty, and was truly UV-protected. I did find some mystery parts (82), metal plates that could go across the join and fit the holes in 12 and 13 perfectly. since I built this on my own I had no one to help hold things but attaching the cross supports, loosely, everything had enough support to build upon. Can anyone tell me what the snow and wind load tolerances are for the kit? I'll call them and try to order everything was just wondering what kind of luck you had. There can't be a short bolt because each of the bolts must go through a type 31 (size wise) brace. Next. (Hello, Harbor Freight? So far, I think I am doing good .... right? Thanks! We’re not sure why attaching the metal base to your wooden foundation would warp the metal base out of square, unless your wooden foundation is not quite level, and/or out of square. I meant to ask if you knew the SKU #. All I can say is you guys are absolutely awesome and show the patience and problem solving skills of saints. All in all it took about a month of spare time while working 50-60 hour weeks.Now that it's winter in Chicago, I'm storing all my outdoor potted plants which normally were in the garage. I've ordered replacement roof panels for my greenhouse, and the part number (along with your greenhouse model number) should get you what you need. thanks Sheri!! I'd remove the polycarbonate panels to protect them. I don't see any thing out of place but notice at the top where roller attaches on right side there is a gap about halfway down the door brace. Mark them with a pencil when you unpack them to save time later. I am about to start my install and I think I should make a run to Lowes before I start. My wife and I are in the final stages of building the 10x12 HFGH and we've gone to your blog many, many times during the construction process during those times when we found ourselves second guessing the construction manual (I'm sure that's a surprise...lol). Good grief.The corrected bolt lists for the back wall studs should read: Back Wall Stud 16 SH,L,L,L,LBack Wall Stud 14 SH,L,L,L,L,L,L,SHBack Wall Stud 14 SH,L,L,L,L,L,L,SHBack Wall Stud 17 SH,L,L,L,LI'll redo the illustration ASAP. I also drilled holes to attache them to the frame and did some of the other structural enhancements. The assembly instructions are sorely lacking in many details. you can also install the small Hold Down Connector (part 47) at the bottom of the stud. Like you I have the base sitting on 4X6 pressure treated lumber. Last year I used Velcro to attach the film on the inside, but eventually the sticky backs of the Velcro let loose and the poly film fell. Your thoughts? Thanks - M. C. Ackerson, Albuquerque, Hello Mark, sorry to hear about the missing part 48s. (I wish you could send your rain here to the desert, we'd put it to very good use! (I'm sure this kind of thing varies greatly. I also have shade cloth coming. Other owners of the newer HFGH have also written that the doors seem better now. Harbor Freight makes some, but to be honest they have poor reviews in the forums. My husband wonders, could you split the difference (meaning, very slightly adjust the base, so the corner to corner measurements are as close to the same as possible? Now the 80 and 79 braces are a half inch too long. Other issue is squaring the base, the included instuctions say corner to corner should be 15' 5", but the hypotenuse of a 10'x15' triangle is around 15' 7".
