If I do the 45 angles like I originally planned yes it will be 14' at the peak. Was thinking chains for hang bars. The only other thing I was thinking about was heating. I want head room for plants to vine and so I'm not bonking head on pots. Idk this is where I kick myself for not going down in size to 6' walls then if I did will I want the extra headroom of 8' walls. Was trying to be frugal with supplies. And not do many cuts.
    And then there is the expense of all the wall material you are going to need, be it glass or twin-wall polycarbonate

    Oh yeah well here its going to be 6mil plastic. I can't afford the poly yet. That's the good thing about living in the south. I can get away with 6mill two layers. And temps stay fine. My current GH only has one layer.

    From the looks of you hanging boards on the side of your truck, you are now an official hillbilly

    you are going to have sooo much room in there
