This might be ambitious however I study some of the other questions that suggests it might be possible.
I want to move my slider to the right to be directly under and flush with the menu block. (maintain its size)
At the same time, I want to place my left hand sidebar directly under my logo. The top of the left hand side bar must be flush with the top of the slider and I want to increase the width of the sidebar to be the same as the maximum allowance for the logo above it
btw if the answer is that it is not possible, I will close this question as resolved.
