    Default Green House Project

    Starting a greenhouse project, it is going to be 12x12 try to put pictures up, step by step of what I am doing.

    Today I got the 4x6x12's in place, hopefully tomorrow I can get some of the framing done.

    Here is the foundation completed, I also used 3 pieces of rebar 3 ft long on each side.

    in the front corners, I used the 1 ft left over pieces from 2 of the 4x6's, along with some left over landscaping bricks to help secure the front, I may pop the bricks from the front and push them from the back to give it a better appearance.

    Very nicely done. Looking to maybe doing something just like that this spring. Thanks for the photos.

    Very nice. Reminds me that mine would likely stand up better if I covered it with that material.

    Excellent work! I love the simplicity of the build. Even my teen could possibly build one for me. Thanks for posting it up.

    Just curious why you elected to run the fiberglass horizontal instead of vertical. Looks very nice.

    nategr, looks like you did a killer job building that gem! I noticed you didn't have any gable ventilation. I built a greenhouse similar to yours from a kit from SBS, I used a 4inch hole saw and made 2 holes in the gable on each side for ventilation....I am no expert mind you seeing how our green house now stores all the junk like old mowers croquet/badmitton sets etc. You see my wife planted tomatoes and the aphids attacked well she read that lady bugs killed aphids....yep you got it, she ordered 5500 ladybugs in the mail. We introduced the ladybugs to the aphid infested tomatoes....ahem...,uh the next morning we went out there and there wasn't 1 lady bug in the whole green house! what we did find to our horror was about 50 of the fattest spiders you could ever imagine! in my opinion we got bad dirt and it ruined the whole shootin match cause we had great tomatoes the year before
