    Unhappy

    Has anyone done this? I'm thinking like a 8'x8' or 8'x12'.
    Would it be cheaper to build or buy? There is no electricity in the spot, and we get 118*F to 28*F.
    I am back..

    This is a perfectly valid question and not stupid at all.

    We won't lock it unless people start acting rude and calling names (not sure how that could come about with the topic but anything is possible I guess.)

    And if you are still worried that it is stupid I will second the request.

    Depending on where you live, what you plant to grow and if you have electricity a green house can be fairly inexpensive or very expensive. I built a pre-fab one last year, it is about 7'X8' and it was over $1,100.00. It has the double pane plastic pannels. If you don't have dogs or small kids who will rip the sides you can make one out of the heavy duty plastic that you can get at Home depot. You will have to replace the plastice every couple of years, but it will give you an idea of how a greenhouse works. Message me for more information.

    Cool

    well, no dogs, hopefully siblings won't terrorize it, and sadly no electricity [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] It can get up to 118*F so, I guess we should lock this topic...

    I am also interested in the entire greenhouse thread. Considering putting something new in this year and I am interested in experiences and options.

    Cheers

    A very cheap way to make a greenhouse it to buy 4x4 pieces of lumber and then holding them together at right angles with bolts . You could then put some poly film over the whole structure for insulation. I made a frame like this in my back yard (without the poly film insulation), and It's both simple to make and cheap. The materials cost a total of around $110 (which could be cheaper in other places) and my shadehouse is 5ft wide, by 11 ft long by 6.5 ft high. If I need more room, I could just build another one for the same price! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] in either case, the cost doesn't get nearly as high as a prefabricated greenhouse. I'm actually thinking of making another frame since my current one is already starting to get crowded. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]
