I've closed the page now, but I think it said 12'3" x 8'.

Great job, puts mine to shame, but mine came as a kit and only cost about £30.00.  Fortunately my entire garden is concrete so I didn't have to worry about the base.

Thanks ya'll .

Bobby I think it took me longer to post the pics  then it did to acutally build it

Like Neofolis  said  it is  12"3 X 8'   and good deal too  I guess that would be about  $65.00 for me on this side of the Atlantic

This morning at 6:00 AM it was 56* outside but only 51* inside

but when I came hove from work it  51* outside and 56* inside,  Its been dark and 10 -15 mph winds all day too.  So I bought a cceramic heater fan for it today for $25.00   1500 watt

the temp has been falling and now it is 40* outside and 50* inside  and callinf for  25* tonight  we'll see in the morning  how much it  raised  the temp inside .

will try to do the things that they say can't be done
