    HF greenhouse build

    Well I decided to start on my 10x12 harbor freight GH. Been simple so far except for the usual no holes where there should be holes and overall fragility of the thing. [br][br]I will be making this into a tank...reinforcing with wood. I'm also going to connect my 6x8 to the front of it and make one structure. Was hoping id be framing with wood today but I'm sure you all know how plans go.

    Mounted the base to 4x4s

    Took it to its plot



    Leveled it and got the sides on



    Got the top on too but it was dark and I was wore out lol. More pics soon.

    Awesome! Glad you're expanding. Still super jealous of your Sarr collection!!

    May you not get 60MPH winds this winter like I did last winter!! The big HFGH is even more of a plastic kite than the littler one!

    I have heard some very poor reviews of this model. I trust you will be cluing the panels into place?

    Tek screws. Not glue. I tried spray adhesive and that just sucked!

    It won't be going anywhere when its finished. I'm going to build a wooden frame inside and screw and silicon the panels in place. This GH def won't survive without reinforcements.

    You should look online at other people's builds. There are several good modifications that will keep it from falling apart or blowing away. It's not a great unit as packaged, but you couldn't buy the acrylic for what it costs, so it's worth a bit of extra work.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.
