I bought my kit in 2010. I was not satisfied with the bolts sliding into the open ends of the stock, it didn't seem that sturdy. I took and added extra 10mm bolts from the hardware store and metal plumbers tape (the kind with holes every 1/2") so that I could put 2 bolts in the ends of the stock and tighten them everywhere they slide into open metal ends. This means that 2 nuts and bolts would have to loosen to pull out, since you can't stretch metal tape. My greenhouse has seen 70 MPH gusts and 2 feet of wet snow and ice, no problem. I took self tapping sheet metal screws and CAREFULLY attached each plastic panel in the middle to the small metal struts and to the top and bottom of the thin aluminum frame. I used small 90 degree shelf hangers and 3/4" EMT (Electrical Metal Tubing, thin walled conduit, you could use 1/2" too) to create 3 struts across the width of the greenhouse between the tops of the walls. I added 1 at each end by using a longer bolt and flattening the EMT in a vise and drilling it. The structure is very strong now, since the struts spread top weight evenly to the walls instead of pushing them apart. I also bolted EMT to the tops of the greenhouse ends using longer 10mm bolts, there is plenty of rail space available and this adds extra structural rigidity (especially over the doors, where I added several). I put some extra bolts in the rails just in case I wanted to add a fan later but never have. The foundation is 4"x 6" ground contact pressure treated lumber, I used screws and washers to fasten the light steel frame to this. This frame puts the metal frame just below ground level and keeps the unit higher, I am very tall (so are my plants). I put expanded metal lath (from the hardware store, used for the backing in concrete stucco) on the ground in the hole before I set the frame in and back filled with pea gravel. It costs about $5 for a 4" x 8" sheet, it will keep the critters out (wear gloves). All this added about a day and $100 in materials to my project. I have used it for a few years now and I am very glad I put the thought into it BEFORE I assembled it. In short, nuts, bolts, and hardware are cheap, but strong (just like HFT shoppers). I'm sure that you can google other peoples projects for similar pictures.

I put mine up by myself this past fall. If I were to do it again I'd try to get a helper. Don't modify anything, just make sure that the metal foundation is square and level. The panels are cut accurately. Don't give in to the temptation to cut them to make them fit or it will leave a gap. If they don't seem to fit, check that the frame is square and check out where they are binding. Once all of the hundreds of pieces are put together and all nuts and bolts checked for tightness, everything will work. Even the doors and vents will work if all is "square". Then use silicone calk around the panels or trust me, you'll be chasing fllying roof and wall panels when it gets windy.Finally, today we had rainy, windy storm. My green house has collapsed. It's on the ground, a twisted metal hulk. I don't know how many panels are scattered. Had the instructions made it clear that it would not survive the sort of winds we get routinely in northern California, and advised buyers to anchor the upper corners with guy ropes to ground stakes, like you do with a cabin tent, it would probably still be standing. Do that or be sorry. I'll do the silicone calking and put on the guy ropes when I repair it this spring. Experience is such a good instructor because, first you get the test, then you get the (often bitter) lesson. Are we having fun yet?

Comments about One Stop Gardens 10 Ft. x 12 Ft. Greenhouse with 4 Vents:
We purchased this unit for our elementary school with PTA funds so that students can do more hands-on science. We will grow various plants, flowers and vegetables from seeds and transplant them into our raised planting beds each homeroom has in our outdoor classroom. Between the greenhouse, planting beds and small orchard (next project) students will have many more opportunities to learn other than just a book or online as this is something that affects their senses. Assembly was done in the Vienna, WV summer heat of 95 degrees by myself and custodian over two days. Read the directions and don't assume you know what's next as this is a big process, but not difficult. We did install extra panel clips that were provided and will go back and silicone the panel edges as others have suggested- but we did not silicone when putting it together as you may have to adjust things. This is a great learning tool for our teachers to use with our students.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Parent
My 16 year old daughter wanted a greenhouse and I found this model online. At the same time, I saw a craigslist add for the same model that needed to be moved so I bought the used one. Even after disassembling a 4 year old house, transporting it an hour and rebuilding it, it went together perfectly. We spent a whole day leveling the ground and building the base because that advice seemed very important in the other reviews. It took just 8-10 hours for me and my daughter to build the house the next day including the concrete paver stone floor so it's not that difficult. It's solid, attractive and definately the best value out there.

Brace it or loose it
from Rough and Ready, CA
About Me Thrifty
It went up OK. It lasted just over 3 weeks! Make sure base is level or everything will be out of kilter as you assemble. Mine looked and seemed great for a week, then wind began blowing out panels. Put them in, then use silicone around the edges to make them stay put. I didn't but it didn't matter because two weeks later wind flattened it, breaking or bending nearly every component. It's junk now. Count the frame as temporary just holding everything in place so you can brace, cross brace, and anchor it. Otherwise it is $600+ down the drain. Harbor Freight doesn't stand behind it.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

About Me Avid Gardener
I purchased this greenhouse in January 2012. No problems so far. It took me several days to assemble but I am retired so no hurry. Reminded me of a giant Erector set. Most important that you get the bottom frame flat and square. Take time to do this and you should have no problems. A second pair of hands would be usefull but not absolutely necessary. I would recommend this to anyone with an interest in gardening. I would not recommend the automatic vent openers. I have gone through 6 of these and only have 2 that still work.

Great Greenhouse for the $$$$$
from San Diego, CA
I live in southern Calif where we get strong "Santa Ana" winds from time to time, so I was nervous about it holding up - plus we get extremely hot weather. I bought this unit and installed it in fall of 2010 and while the installation instructions were poorly written, the actual physical unit has stood the test of time extremely well. No blown out panels (and yes we HAVE had very high winds) or other problems others have described. I did not used any fastners other than what was supplied. No liquid nails, adhesives, re-enforcements, etc used. For the money this unit has been excellent!! Only thing I would like to see added in manufacturing would be supports included to attach a ventilation fan.

I live in the Desert, HOT & very windy. I planted my green house in a trench with 2 X 8 planks screwed to the base. I purchased 2 extra bags of clips & 8 tubes of outdoor silicone caulk. Every panel is caulked in place as are the clips also caulked in place. I put power in the house as I have an evaporative cooler and electric heater on thermostats. I bought and returned the self opening vent contraptions, and eventaully screwed down the vents. My cooler even on the hottest days keeps the unit at 85 degrees and the little electric heater in the winter keeps it at 45 degrees which is adequate. I hired workers to Jack hammer the calache to a depth of 5 feet and filled the sides with good planting mix. I covered the top and 1/2 of the sides with shade cloth which is siliconed & wired from the base over the top to the base at every strut. I have had my house for 1 1/2 years and it works great for my 6 avacado trees and 3 lemon trees. I am considering another house. This unit is well worth the price. Las Vegas has 60+ MPH winds and I've not lost a single panel, nor has the house colapsed.

Good value for the money
from New York State, zone 5
Assembled one greenhouse by myself in about 16 hours. On-line directions are better than the printed ones that come with the unit. Liked it so much I added a second 10x12 to the first one. I'm hoping to use it 10 to 11 months of the year.
3 10X12's back to back to make one 10X36
from Belleview, FL
Take the time to reinforce things and it is great. I have 3 of them put together back to back. Have doors on both ends. Have chains in the middle of each on to keep it from bowing out. I have 30 orchids hanging from the roof in clay pots. And that is heavy.I got all of these on sale one at a time. Liked then so got anoth one and added it on. Husband says 3 is the limit because no more room left.If I had more room I'd add another one.

The Very BEST!!
By Tony Z
from Las Vegas Nv
Before purchasing I read all of the reviews. I live in Las Vegas (80mph winds). I put 2 X 6's on the bottom of the foundation and buried it in a mixture of soil and gravel. I then used exterior Silicone caulk on every edge (10 tubes) I purchased the automatic vent openers but returned them as they are not very reliable. I've put a heater & Evaporative cooler in it with thermostats and covered the roof with shade cloth. It is just as strong as can it be I only wish there were a way of connecting two together to make it 10 X 24. Because of my green house I am probably the only gardener with avacado trees and citrus flourishing in Las Vegas. My wife has said "I think that we shold buy another one". If you live in a windy ares the silicone caulk is the secret to success. Purchase extra clips from customer service and silicone them also. The manual is a little hard to understand at times, but a little common sence does wonders. We will probably buy another, in time. Tony Z
