erecting a greenhouse
« on: January 29, 2010, 17:29 »
Can anyone help me?  I'm stuck inside with a broken leg - I have had a local builder/handyman putting in some raised beds for me... excellent - but I asked him to dismantle and collect a second hand 6 x 4 greenhose for me - he is now having trouble squaring the green house to start erecting it....any ideas??

Measure the diagonals, if they are the same it is square. 
Cheese makes everything better.

if he is working on his own 3 4 5 it this is the foolproof way , measure 3 ft on the narrow end then from the same corner measure 4 ft then hold your tape across these to marks and adjust untill it says 5 ft on the tape that is a perfect right angle
If the early bird gets the worm how come the 2nd mouse to the trap gets the cheese ??

Wouldnt want this builder/handyman building me anything if he cant square anything  :D, Im only messing lol, tell him to get him self down to screwfix and buy one of the metal foldable squares, they are great handy tools that every handyman should have,
