    Is this okay?

    Here are the plans for a greenhouse that I plan to make this year due to the constant torrential rains that Florida brings me and my plants. Which usually end up damagind them.

    here are my plans, a little sloppy because i'm computer disabled.

    please give me comments and some critiques so that maybe I can make it better.




    also I'm looking for the opaque plastic sheet that people use for the lining of their greenhouses. So if you know of an easy place to obtain it I would like to know.

    Thanks! looking forward to your replies.

    These guys sell greenhouse film in rolls, free shipping. They're in TN.

    They sell frames (10 foot is the smallest) and entire kits too.

    Don't know how opaque it is. Judge for yourself from pictures of their greenhouse kits.

    I just bought some pots and trays from them which are supposed to come this week so I can't vouch for them yet. Seems ok so far. They didn't charge an arm and a leg for shipping.

    JB_OrchidGuy can probably help you out a lot better than me

    Check out their flowerhouses too.

    Their prices seem quite reasonable, too.

    yes, they are, the down side is that it doesent have as high of a light transmision as other materials and needs to be replaced every 2-3 years, but curruntly it is the best material for greenhouses on the market.

    This post just kind of caught my attention. Maybe I should build a greenhouse as well. A couple questions though. How would you go about heating a greenhouse and what kind of lighting would you use? btw dave, your plans look real nice.

    Dave lives in Florida, Gabe. he PROBABLY wont need heating and might actually need cooling. with me i only need heating for the winter .i plan to also make a greenhouse soon. im scared though that when i make it....it will get too hot during the summer!!!!!! ill have to get some advice from JB_orchidguy cause he lives in georgia and gets summers the same if not hotter than ours. id like it to be somthing like a lowland or lowland-intermediate GH. so i can finally grow somthing like N. rafflesiana and N. truncata and possibly N. bicalcarata!
