    Looks good so far. What kind of endwalls are you plaaning on having? Wood or Polycarbonate?

    I too am curious about this. I need a place to overwinter my CPs for while I am in college and I also live in Ohio.

    Sorry it took so song to get back to you. I used the thickest plastic available at the hardware store. I didn't have the money for the greenhouse film.
    Good Luck

    It's looking good so far! PVC is a fine material for greenhouses and when secured adequately can survive a lot of what the weather can throw at it. My greenhouse is now in its second year and is fine regarding UV exposure. Here's a photo from last summer:



    Now it has been doubled in size to 12'x4' - I'll post a new photo next week.

    Hi everyone. We finished my greenhouse on Saturday. It ended up taking up most of my spring break since we had quite a few rainy days. But we finally got it done and here are some pictures of it:

    This is a pic of just the frame and the pvc bows:

    Here it is with the end frames on:

    Here's some pictures of it after we put a small window in the end and got the plastic on:

    These are my costs:
    Greenhouse sheeting: 20x24' (including s&h) - $61.78

    Pressure treated lumber:
    9- 2x4x8'- $26.73
    3- 2x4x12'- $16.47
    2- 4x4x6'- $9.94
    5- 2x6x14'- $47.90 (I didn't have to buy these since my dad had enough leftover from another project)

    PVC: 13- 3/4"x10' pvc pipe- $18.07
    4- 3/4" pvc crosses- $4.68
    2- 3/4" pvc tees- $0.56

    Basement storm window and screen- $16.00
    Misc. screws, lag bolts, EMT straps- around $15

    Total: $217.13

    Here's a link to the plans I used: Plans

    We made a few changes to these plans in order to make the greenhouse stronger. If you'd like to know what chages we made please PM me.
