    Greenhouse Build

    I started on a 8'x12' greenhouse last week. This is my first attempt design, not a kit. Thought I would share some build photos as the project comes together.

    That's going to be a nice greenhouse! It will be something you will always use, too. Looking good.

    Shell is pretty much finished. Need to work on shelves and the inside yet. It got up to 79 degrees on a 45 degree day.

    That is a great looking greenhouse! having the vent in the peak will make a big difference in controlling temps. I would suggest a fan or two to help as well.

    I own a wide format digital printing company... We print on a product called coroplast which is a corrugated plastic panel that comes in 4x8 sheets. It comes in clear, so I acquired some for a project. Everything else is just standard Home Depot 2x4's, 1x4's, and 2x6's.

    I will be honest, this covering is a test. So far so good, but I have no idea how it will hold up long term. I built the entire structure with screws so I can take it apart and replace the covering if need be. Having said that, I am happy how it is working so far.
