Looking to attach a greenhouse to the side of my garage.  Would like to go as large as possible, so approx. 26' long x 10' wide.  Attach to the side of the garage via a ledger board.  Anyone with experience/knowledge in this area?  Product recommendations?  I'm open to suggestions on materials and design.

No interest in greenhouse kits that attach to existing buildings?  I can't be the only one thinking about this.  Can I?

Thanks for the link, S.  I was hoping for some first-hand recommendations of products/product lines, either good or bad.  Might still happen.

I think most folks just do regular framing from say homedepot/lowes and then get polycarbonate panels. https://www.greenhousemegastore.com/coverings/plastic-sheets/polycarbonate-sheets/polycarbonate-panel-8mm-clear
