HFGH base dimensions wrong

9 years ago

I followed instructions in manual and cut the 4x4 base exactly (before i found this forum) to find that the dimensions are wrong. They were 1.5 inches long on the width and about 1 inch to short on the length. Decreasing the width wasn't too bad, just cut the end pieces and reattached.

The instructions show the front piece hanging out over the edge of the 4x4. That seems wrong, AND the back piece also had to hang out about half inch. I added a piece of 2x4 across the back. Slid every thing back and now my front piece sit back away from the edge. Anyone see a problem with doing it this way? It seems the slot for the sliding door would be stronger if it were fully sitting on the 4x4.
