    I'm going to put down gravel as a flooring and line the sides of the greenhouse with tables to put neps and other plants on. I might be adding a few barrels of water as thermal objects. The greenhouse gets hit by about 2-1/2 hours of direct sunlight on a winter day, so it may be double that in the summer. I'll purchase some shade cloth to ensure the neps won't get burnt in the summer.

    I'm going to move the neps into the greenhouse once I get a feel for what the temperature will be like day and night. They'll probably be moved in within a month or two when the winter weather lifts. I'll be purchasing more neps as I go along, obviously!

    Comments, questions and criticisms are always welcomed!

    Haha, thanks guys! It took so much work to put up! The instructions were poorly written, so it took MUCH longer than the expected two hours. The panels were probably the worst part though. It took me about an hour of messing with the panel clips to get the idea to look it up on YouTube, and when I did, I figured it out immediately. The panels probably took two hours to get in working with two people. The clips are thick metal wires that take like 100 pounds of force to put in properly. They were cutting into my fingers and they still hurt a day later! I'm glad it's all finally done though.

    Very nice! Quite jealous here too!

    Just a question though, is the door really only 5'4" high? That would be a major PITA to move plants, tables etc. in and out unless you were shorter than that. Id be ducking 8"+ just to get in haha

    Thanks!!

    It's sitting on the 4" tall foundation, so that moves it up to 5'8" high. I do have to duck a little, but it's not at the point where it's annoying.

    Hey! That looks amazing! I can't wait to see the picture of you slowly filling it with plants!

    Are you allowed to tell us how much it was, roughly?

    I can't wait either! I didn't finished one of the vents until this morning, so the greenhouse was around 35F inside during the night. When I finished the vent this morning and placed it on, within an hour, the greenhouse was already at 75F! If it stays warm during the night, I can go ahead and stick the plants in there really soon!

    Yup. I got it from Harbor Freight for $299.99. It's usually $399.99, but it's been on sale for a while. Small Greenhouse Kit - 6Ft. x 8Ft. Greenhouse

    They also have a larger model, which is 10' W x 12' L x 10' H, but it's double the cost. However, they do have a 20% coupon online I believe, so you can get the large model for just over $500!
