    That is sweet... looks fairly easy too. I'll bet even I could do that.
    There's a tunnel at the end of the light...

    Now that you've had that greenhouse for almost a year, I was curious how it faired through the Ohio winter and which arm and leg you gave up to heat it? Seriously though, how hard was it to keep it heated. I would like to build a greenhouse to house Saras and other temperates that require dormancy. I would like to keep it above 35 degrees in Winter, but I'm afraid here in Colorado with temps regularly down in the single digits at night it would be ver expensive to heat.

    I have only read the first page, so sorry if this response is out-of-date. In Nebraska, we would probably call an outdoor PVC greenhouse "a kite"...
    Though I really doubt it's as windy there as in the plains here.



    Cheers,

    Joe

    PS Read the rest, and am embarrassed that I did not realize how old the origin of the thread was, lol.
    So, how did it do?

    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.
