If building one from scratch seems too daunting. Basically find a frame that you can use and cover it with the greenhouse glazing of your choice.
So what kind of pre-existing frames can be used for your do it yourself greenhouse?:
- an old swing set frame (without the swings) - cover with the glazing.
- a temporary storage shelter - these things can be found everywhere.
- an old wooden shed - maybe you have and existing one. just strip the siding, andthe roof and, again, fit it with your own glazing.
There are a lot of good greenhouse plans out there, but I still personally standbehind the Hoop House.
