No instructions, but a few pics of the corner plates and finished greenhouse in this thread, if it helps.

Hi there, hoping somebody might be able to help me out with a similar query. My parents acquired an 8x14 Crittall greenhouse some time ago and over the last few months, my Dad's been able to construct the majority of it without the benefit of any assembly instructions. However, we've been stumped on the last stage of installing the doors, which we can figure out how to fit as they seem slightly too tall (~1/2") to sit on the lower rail when mounted. We're not sure if we're missing a part or something has been put in the wrong place, but everything else looks correct as far as I can tell. If anyone could share instructions or photos illustrating the correct arrangement of the relevant parts at the door gable end (doors, rail, vertical supports, etc), I'd be deeply grateful.

That feels so long ago now !

However, we've been stumped on the last stage of installing the doors, which we can figure out how to fit as they seem slightly too tall (~1/2") to sit on the lower rail when mounted.

It looks like the bottom rail is the wrong way round (or swapped with the top). It's too dark tonight but I'll grab some pictures for you tomorrow. If you check my first picture in the thread MoS posted there's a picture of how the corner should look.

Hi, lardman. Looking at the link you posted, I think you've hit the nail bang on the head. We do seem to have put the rail in upside-down, when compared to that photo. Will try reversing it in the morning and let you know how we get on. Thanks so much!

Here are a few better picture.

You can see the door 'sits' on the shoulder with lip in the bottom track (mine doesn't actually touch the bottom).

Looking at your picture again it doesn't look like the right profile for the bottom track.   Yes it does - ignore me.

Appreciated the pics, they served to confirm your theory was correct. We reversed the rail and sure enough (despite Dad's initial skepticism 😆), we were able to get the doors fitted correctly.

Can't tell you how long he'd been pulling his hair out trying to figure out that last issue, a massive thank you from both of us! Cheers to you, sir! 🍻
