DIY Greenhouses: Old Shelter or Portable Garage Frame Do It Yourself Greenhouse
This is a very doable DIY Greenhouses project. Especially if you can get your hands on an old shelter or temporary metal garage frame from someone. I know that there are many of these that have seen better days, and some people just want to get rid of them.
Or maybe they just didn't have a good use for them yet.....

Here is a picture of one of the temporary garages we're talking about.
I took this picture of a, converted old shelter to greenhouse project, when we were driving to the pumpkin patch to pick up a few Halloween pumpkins.
I saw a couple of greenhouses along the way so I thought that I would snap a couple of pictures.
This is a picture of a DIY Greenhouse that we saw, made out of an old quick garage metal tube frame:
These old garage frames are a great way to set-up a quick greenhouse and get growing.
When we were thinking about building a Greenhouse, after a lot of research, I knew that I wanted it to be a hoop house and before we built ours I thought that I would try this out myself.

I think that this is a great idea. It sure beats the frame hitting the dump once the original cover has ripped or has deteriorated.
Whichever way that you decide to build a greenhouse of your own, Greenhouse Coverings, or glazing, is a good subject to brush up on. You can take a look at our greenhouse glazing page for more information.
And if you do build a greenhouse of your own, or currently have a greenhouse of your own we would sure appreciate it if you would send us a picture. We would love to showcase it on our website. Contact Us
