    I tryed this before 2 times and i had it down great! but.. in the winter the rain just pushed its way and riped some on the top off. I think if u have a little bit more money to spend i would try Lowes! and have them order u a green house they have nice little one's there for order! good luck [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] E.C

    Hey Jerry. I was just looking on internet on how to build one these a few days ago. I found some plans at ACF Greenhouses. I thought about building one since the film and pvc pipe seemed fairly cheap. But i changed my mind after i saw the price for the fittings. The 3 way connectors were like $3 a piece and the pvc clamps were like $1.50 each. So the fittings to build a 5 ft. x 4 ft. x 4 ft coldframe would cost $60. Then i would have to buy pipe and film. I figured it was too much for this small of coldframe. Where did you find kits at on the internet?? Maybe those would be cheaper. Thanks.

    Hi buckeye,Thats the same site I was looking at,the ACF Greenhouse site.I'm planning on an 8'x10' or 8' x 12' greenhouse some time in the spring/summer.What were you going to grow in a 5'x4'x4' cold frame?I have alot of VFTs and buying more Sarrs so I'm going to need a place for them in the winter.I have about 30 cps outside(vfts,sarrs),150-200 inside(neps,sundew,butterworts,vft seedlings,cobra lily seedlings,sarr seedlings.......)

    I built one two years ago and it's still up. It held up with about 8in of snow last winter and about 65 mph winds this summer with no damage.
