    Hello. I'm going to take pictures as we build it and post them on the forums. I'm not sure how long it will take but it shouldn't take too long. You can never be for sure though, since it always seems to take longer to build something than you would think. We're planning to start it sometime over spring break.

    Good luck on your green house. Jeremiah and his dad built a small greenhouse for Jeremiah's plants last year. Wish I had the room in my yard to build one. Not quite enough room though.

    Good luck,

    Thanks BCK. I just ordered the greenhouse film. I got Durafilm from IGC like Tony suggested. It has a 4 yr. warranty so it should last a minimum of 4 yrs. We're probably going to start building it on Wednesday. I can't wait!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    That's cool! I wish i could build a green house. My mom said that I couldn't and I shouldn't be getting plants that are too big! I'm stuck with terrariums. (4 of them, hahaha!!!)

    Well it looks like i might have to delay building the green house. We're suppose to get 4-8" of snow tonight and tomorrow. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] It's weird since it's nearly 50 out and sunny today. But that's Ohio's weather for ya. We might try to build the wood frame in the garage or barn, so at least we'll get started.

    From my research on greenhouse construction I've read the following.

    PVC will become brittle do to UV exposure from the sun requiring replacement. I don't know how long it takes. I think you can buy PVC with UV inhibitors as well.

    Why not use conduit for your hoops? The won't ever need replacement and will carry a heavy snow load. The only thing you will have to replace every few years will be the Plastic Film.

    I have never built a greenhouse so my comments are based on my reading. If anyone has experience with PVC hoop style greenhouses it would be good to know how long the PVC lasts.

    Just some thoughts on the subject.

    If you build one with PVC, keep us posted on how long it lasts.
