Default Making Greenhouses?

Later this year I will be helping son construct a new mist propagation
greenhouse, he is wanting to do it in wood with polycarbinate. I am
pretty sure the area he has ear marked and base built is non standard
size and shape hence his decision .
Many years ago I was able to buy glazing bars etc in stove coated
alluminium to recover my old victorian leantoo but I cant now find
anyone supplying lengths of alluminium glazing bar.

My feeling is if we can get hold of proper greenhouse mouldings it will
have a much longer useful life and require less upkeep than if we build
in wood.
Does any one know of a supplier?

An odd shape is more difficult, but a non-standard rectangular size can be
worked around by buying an over-size greenhouse and modifying it to fit the
desired size.

Yes I agree, and its probably the best solution, it would have course
have made my life easier if he had laid the thing out with that in mind
but as he has constructed the base walls in concrete blocks on their
sides I will have to work with the floor plan as is!
