    New pvc Greenhouse

    Thought I might share some pics of my newly built Greenhouse thats located in my bad yard(messy I know...)





    Its 6'x9', the frame is built out of scheduled 40, 1in pvc and the siding is made out of corrugated pvc roofing panels. The base is made out of 4 8' landscape timbers. The floor is made out of 2'x2' paver. I havent finished up the floor yet but I will when this really hot weather goes. Was wondering if I needed some shade cloth, if I do what %(have no clue). Im hoping to get a couple more shelves and alot more plants

    Questions/comments Welcomed.

    Did you build this from a kit/plans, or did you do it all yourself? It looks like it was done very well. I've been wanting a greenhouse, but still haven't found the cheapest and most efficient route (I've just been looking for used greenhouses in classifieds and stuff). Are you going to add cooling/heating to it?

    I've heard shading should be around 50-70%. but I have no actual experience with it.

    Thanks for the comments. Everything is built from scratch. Had alot of help from my father who is very handy. I dunno about winter yet, I hope that the siding wont be brittle and crack. In the plans they used that polyurethane stuff but I knew I was going to replace it sometime in the future. Im thinking of heating it during the winter not sure. Forgot to put the price tag on all the materials, it came around $375(alot in those panels).

    oh! nice greenhouse and great dad.
    375$!! that's cheap to me. (I wish I could find a place here to build greenhouse. )
    perhaps you can put a pot of water inside with increase humidity.
    anyway that's great! my friend.

    Thank you duckking, I havent checked the humidity level yet in there but when i spray the hose in there it gets very humid in there. Would a thing of water increase the humidity alot?
