Nightmare - keeping a greenhouse base level!
Literally tearing my hair out now and havent even begun on constructing the greenhouse.
THE BASE....I cant seem to get the thing square..well i can..but then its not horizonal..and when i ..just about get the thing level...the back end of it is not the same height as the front end!! AND...
..the 6 spikes I have, just shortish metal pieces, do not stick into the ground. i have cemented them in..but this morning find they are loose..aka..frame can be lifted out ( just as well as have to start again anyway!! )
Any suggesting please! Its 6ft x 10ft. The metal base...i assume is flat..but could be a little bent..as have been lifting it up etc I note that when i bolt it together the edges ..although fit together..at corners..I wouldnt say its a snug fit..a line of gap...but the joint is bound together ok.
Its lying on a laid piece of cement...again...trying to get a 10 x6 and bigger concrete base all level..done in stages..aint easy..and its not level..however..i dug 6 holes, in corners and two at the sides..and lay the base in with the metal 'spikes' falling into the holes and I cemented it. No matter how many times I tried..and i really did try..to correct the base..so that its 100% level...it was impossible to be deadon all the way around ( even if it meant lifting the base off the concrete floor..gaps underneath..to fill later )
And the fact that the spikes aint stuck? any thoughts? In the poor instructions did say to use...piping?? none supplied.. I mean what do you do..stick the metal spikes in piping? and then cement??
Boring old problem i know..sorry..but any thoughts welcome. How can I get this blasted frame 100% square and level on all sides? Does it have too be???? I keep hearing about nightmare fitting glass if its not. No room for 99./9% accurate then?
