    I am building from scratch. The finished GH will be 10' x 14' outside with 7/12 pitch roof and 8' inside clearance. The roof will be covered with white corrugated plastic and the walls will be covered with clear corrugated plastic. I should also have enough material left to frame in a 2' deep bench along all of the interior walls.

    PS. Victoria, I will be drawing up my prints for this project this week (I hope) I will shoot those off to you as promised as soon as I finish them.

    That sounds like a great idea!

    I'm looking at a new home and there is going to be lots of room for a nice GH.
    The ones I find online that are good and tough are also pricey.
    I want to go big and the material you have decided on I've not considered.
    I'll be interested to see your finished GH.

    What would really be nice would be a couple photos while the works in progress?
    If you could offer a ball park cost, we could probably come up with a average per. sq. ft.
    number to work off of for any sized GH we wanted built the same way..

    I ask for a lot don't I :-)

    Jeff,

    I am fortunate enough to have a source of material for free. I am a commercial carpenter and get the material from work. :-)

    If you want to price the material: I am using 20 gauge metal, 3 5/8" x 10' track and studs. The studs in the photo are 9' which will be fine for all but the ceiling joists. I will have to buy 10 pcs of 10' studs to make those.

    Hey, where'd the pic go?

    Edit: Wait, it's back. I guess it's only there half of the time then.

    The pic was offline for all of 20 seconds while I swapped it for another view. Odd thing is that was over 2 hours before you posted.. and 3 hours before I post now.
