    Greenhouse construction

    Right now our house is almost completely full of my regular houseplants so in order to have room for the thousands of CPs I would like to eventually own I will have to build a greenhouse. I did a web search and was shocked at how much the kits cost so I am looking for instructions on a DIY greenhouse.

    Has anyone here constructed their own greenhouse? If so do you have basic instructions on materials used, problems that came up, cost, etc. Just any info would be greatly apreciated.

    Thanks!

    First off, the only credentials I have about greenhouses is the fact that I really want to build one someday! That being said, I was actually looking around the bookstore today about books on greenhouses. Here is one book that I looked at that seemed to have quite a few good sections. It is also recommended reading on the Califorina Carnivores website. Here it is: link.
