Greenhouse

 

Greenhouse Pic (2)

Welcome,

I have designed an inexpensive, easy to build, portable greenhouse.

Inside dimensions are 8’4″ X 7′. You can build one for about 150 dollars.

I have also written an E-Book, now listed on Amazon that details the construction step-by-step. The E-Book also includes a material list as well as drawings of all the parts. There are tons of pictures too.

Also, updated in this E-Book, I show how to turn this design into a permanent structure by using corrugated metal for the top instead of plastic. You CAN use a tarp as a roof, but metal is forever.

I hope you will stop by Amazon.com and consider buying the E-Book. It is very reasonably priced considering the info it contains.

You can find it on my STORE page.

Look for GREENHOUSE E-BOOK under the “CATEGORIES”.

Here’s a link to it:

Greenhouse E-Book

***NEW***

If you would rather have a PDF document that you can print out, you can now get the plans, materials list (and the extra section dealing with adding corrugated metal to make a shed) in PDF format. I will send the PDF directly to your email for your convenience !

      Lisa,

      Thanks for the great comment, and supporting my Youtube Channel.
      You may want to make sure you have the PDF. It WILL help in the construction.
      But, the PDF is not free any more. After giving away over 2800 copies of the original PDF, it’s now an e-Book on Amazon. I pasted annotations over the places on the video that stated that a free PDF was available. If you have your “annotations” turned off, or if you are watching on a mobile device, you can’t see the disclaimer.

      The new Ebook has a lot of updated info NOT INCLUDED in the original PDF, like a new section showing how to attach corrugated metal to it to make a garden shed, goat barn or chicken tractor, etc.

      I priced it VERY cheap. Click here to see the book:
      http://astore.amazon.com/homegardenfarmimprovementemergencypreparedness.homesadvis0b-20/images/B00CBNG03K

      If you WOULD rather have it in a PDF format (so you can print it out) I can send it to you. You’ll need to use the PayPal link below. I’ll send the PDF to your email for your convenience. The NEW PDF file has all the updated information, including the section dealing with attaching corrugated metal to the basic frame to make a shed. Having the drawings and materials list could save you a lot of time and money, so it’s WELL worth the price, and I hope you’ll give it a try. The PDF is also cheaper than the e-Book.

      Posted April 12, 2016 at 9:15 am | Permalink

      Dorothy,

      I’ve sold a couple of them, but don’t build to sell anymore.
      It’s easy to build, and I have several that were built by senior women… so, I’m sure you could do it.

      As for the PDF… I’m sorry, but after giving away over 2800 copies of the original PDF, it is no longer free, but is now an e-Book on Amazon. I pasted annotations over the places on the video that stated that a free PDF was available. If you have your “annotations” turned off, you wouldn’t have seen the disclaimer.

    I would love to buy your plans. I have no problem with that because I love the design. However, I would like to make the greenhouse about a foot wider. Is there a way to mathematically change the plans to make it wider? If so, I will be glad to buy the plans asap.
    Thank you!

    • admin
      Posted April 10, 2016 at 3:45 pm | Permalink

      Sure… lots of folks make it wider… but you will have to raise the side walls. To do this, you will have to make the “runners” taller. In the plan, and video, I use 2X4’s to make the runners. You will need to use 2X8’s or something like that to get more height in the middle.
      There are a couple of pictures on this page that will show what I mean.
      Here’s the Page: http://homesteadadvisor.com/greenhouses-built-using-my-design/

    • admin
      Posted April 10, 2016 at 3:48 pm | Permalink

      I should have said…
      Making it a foot wider will drop the height. That’s why you would need to raise the side walls to accommodate… Unless you’re real short.
      I have one that is 12 feet wide… but it’s only about 4 feet tall. I use it as a sheep shed.
      Look on this website at the “Corrugated Shed” page.

        They should be ripe then…

            We’ve been picking for about 2 weeks.
            They will be ready for about another week or 2.
            They will fade out after that.
            Come pick some !

    Just put about two hours into making mine. Very good instructions. All I have left to do is build the door and put the skin on. This really was an easy project and your book is so perfect. I appreciate the low price too. So far I have $47 for the wood and $40 for the fence pannels. $3 for staples, $3 for screws. I have greenhouse plastic already so Looks like I get it done for under $100.

    So if I read correctly those are 5 gauge fence panels for cattle? I love this and was planning on building a mini greenhouse using PVC for rib bracing but this is better. Prolly cheaper and less time consuming as well. Please let me know what size cattle panels those are or put up a link to tractor supply. I live in Texas so tsc is down the road from me. Thanks again brother.

    What a great design! Sorry so many clueless people don’t bother to read even your first few comments indicating availability of the building plan\guide and you have to constantly tell them where to go. People are lazy. If they can’t spent 2 minutes to read a little, how are they going to spend a few hours constructing their greenhouses? Are they even going to actually read your guide after they get it? LOL

    Nothing against you. You tried to make it as obvious as possible, but people just don’t get it! Thanks again for taking the time to put all this together and for your patience.

      The text is imbedded in the video. I have tried to overlay that with another text that refers people to Amazon and PayPal.
      I tried, but can’t remove the entire original text without completely trashing the video.
      Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Hi, I just purchased and received the PDF for your greenhouse design, in it you recommend automatic vent opener. How would you attach it to this design. Thank you in advance for any suggestions you may have.

    Best regards,

    Elise

      This video shows how the opener is attached (at about 4 minutes in) when the window is hinged at the top.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=El8k57l8gMk

      However… you might want to hinge the window at the bottom. If so, you would invert this opener to the top of the window frame, and attach the opener to the panel at the top of the greenhouse (by wiring it to the panel I suppose). I haven’t done it, but it shouldn’t be hard to figure out.

      Thanks, hope that helped.

    im looking for a while for a good greenhouse plan and the one you have is really nice. If im done creating the one you made i will give some Credits to you 🙂

    i have a gaming website, but want to show people that i like growing green, like tomatos, garlic, pepper etc etc. My grandpa learned me the basics we live in the netherlands (Biddinghuizen) a small village. and with 200 other people we do rent some land for growing our own food.

    So hopefully with your plan we can grow green in the winter 🙂

    Hello,

    I love this design! I want to make sure I get it right so I bought the Amazon ebook. I plan to use it as a rabbitry for my stacked all metal cages. My question is that I’d ideally like to have hanging cages and was wondering if you think that the structure would hold if I hung about six one-half pound cages that each have a five pound rabbit in it using 14 gauge galvanized wire to suspend the cages? If not,do you think that there would be a way to make it sturdy enough?

    Thank you!

    • admin
      Posted August 10, 2013 at 4:30 pm | Permalink

      Thanks for your purchase!
      I can HANG from the peak of the arch, and I’m 200 lbs… but that is from the very center.
      If you hang cages, you may be doing it along the sides of the structure. You MAY have to reinforce… not sure.
      I have shelves along the sides, but have never tried hanging anything from them. Wish I could help more.

      • Chris
        Posted June 7, 2013 at 8:35 pm | Permalink

        I guess the greenhouse plastic. I just need enough to cover the structure as outlined in the e-book and the youtube video. I purchased the e-book on my mother-in-laws old kindle, not thinking about the fact that it would not show the photos. I also don’t know if any information may have been left out. I’m guessing I need around an 18′ x 24′ piece of material, possibly longer if I use a third cattle panel. I’m just not totally sure what to cover this with.
        Best,
        Chris

      If you are talking about the “Uprights” I do not have an “angle” on the drawings. Just cut them at the dimention shown (68.5″ and 70.5″), and you will have your angle.

    I built a greenhouse using your PDF. Thanks and a great idea. The only thing I am a little confused about is the cover. I am in Canada and having a hard time find the poly at a reasonable price. Is you Amazon listed 6 mil ” Greenhouse Poly” UV rated or is it just thick poly? Is there a difference between greenhouse poly and 6 mil poly? Thanks

    • admin
      Posted March 26, 2013 at 4:39 pm | Permalink

      Sorry, I’m not an authority on plastic. The Amazon item that I listed was the only one I could find there that was 6 mil. Is it great…? not sure…
      I put 6 mil plastic from a local GH supply house on mine. It was supposed to be 5 year plastic. I am on my 3rd winter and it is a little milky… not real clear at all. I may replace this fall. It’s not torn up or anything, I just think it is blocking the light a little since it is not clear anymore. My point is… don’t expect 5-6 years from ANY plastic.
      There is a YT video that has a way to install and remove the plastic easily. I may do this method next time I replace my plastic. That way I can also do screen in the summer and grow heat sensitive stuff in there… maybe. I would think removing it in the summer would also increase the plastic’s longevity. Here’s the link:

      I used regular greenhouse 6 mil plastic and it is on it’s 3rd winter.
      In 2011 we had over a hundred days of 100+ temps, so it took a beating that year.
      It is looking a little ragged, but I MIGHT try to make it one more year on that plastic.
      I have some plastic listed on the PDF that is 6 mil, and is in my Amazon Store… you might want to try that.

    Hey Alan, thanks for the post. I’m currently designing a smaller “greenhouse” for those who do not have room or the money to buy larger ones. This helped me get an idea of what to do for it. Have you ever worked on cold frames before?
    This one I’m working on I call “Cold Frame Polytunnel”. Do you have any advice for me to consider about the structure?

    • admin
      Posted February 28, 2013 at 9:13 am | Permalink

      I’ve never built a cold frame. I understand the concept, but never built one.
      I would look at the cattle panel for the poly tunnel if you can bend it in that tight of a radius. If not, what about a piece of woven wire fencing? It has the same function of the CP but is made of much lighter stuff, and can be bent easily. Something like this: http://www.tractorsupply.com/en/store/horse-fence-60-in-x-100-ft …But there are lots of different kinds, sizes and lengths
      Also, concrete reinforcement wire. I use them for tomato cages all the time. They are strong but bend well. The only problem is they are not galvanized and they rust BAD. This would stain your tunnel cloth.
      hope that helps.
      Let me know how it goes…

    I love your green house design! I am gathering the materials to build 2 greenhouses but mine will be 3 panels long instead of 2 to be a little more functional on the farm. I might try putting them on 4″x4″x16′ skids to drag them around on. Thank you so much for showing me and anyone who is interested, how to build such a useful structure. I am grateful.

    • admin
      Posted February 26, 2013 at 10:04 am | Permalink

      Good idea to go with bigger skids, on the bigger greenhouse. It will take a tractor to pull it, though.
      This is something I just saw…look at it and see if it might work on your greenhouse. I like the idea of swapping out plastic and shade cloth easily. You may want to try it.

    Try a screen-door spring to help pull the window in to close. That’s what I use. You’ll have to experiment with how tight to pull it.
    Love the Hardy Kiwis. I have been trying to grow them for years with limited success. Any tips? Mine look great right now, but we are about to get some cold weather tonight and tomorrow night… you are too… hope they don’t get burnt.
    I will be posting some of your pics (maybe tomorrow)…
