I shouldnt' complain really, although in a strong wind over 40, U have to remove the canopy and it is easy to do as it is velcro on the posts. This has keep some plants for me to replant in the flower beds. Begonias for one. who dont' like it under 40, have really just done great in 35F on the coldest nites. (inside/outside temp. 10.00 at walmart)  I have kept them in a seperate small GH inside of this one but they stil get cold. I just need a more sturdy structure and the FREE pallets wil give me that. I will be out maybe 50.00.. I hope less.. lol..

I am going to do a 7x10, 1/2 walled Pallet bolted together, anchoed with metal 6' fence posts 3' buried in concrete blocks.. Do heavy gauge welding wire for the top arched over w/8mil plantic..  7' w x 10' L or so.. I have seen these and it should be just fine for what I am needing it for.. I just need 10 more pallets and the concrete blocks. I hope to have it done by mid April.. This tent GH, has got to GO!! Before the wind/storms take it.. lol

It has been a long while since I posted here.  For your viewing pleasure, an updated picture of my greenhouse

Hi everyone!  We are officially joining the greenhouse craze.  Here are 8 pictures, linked to my Facebook album.  Still need to get a fan installed and figure out what to do about heating over the winter.  We have A LOT to learn and are excited about this adventure.

I'll make sure to take pictures, William! I need to post pics of the glass panels I have to see if you think they would work well. I also found a huge framed picture window yesterday in an old building my mother in law bought to start her church in. I think it would work perfectly.

Melissa that's what you do is collect what you can as cheap as you can for the roof panels are not cheap by any means. No matter what you take pic.s as you go along and you won't regret it. I would love to see them as you go.

That's what I've been doing, William. My current greenhouse is waaay too small, so my husband and I have been collecting anything we can salvage from estate sales, alley ways, and, since he's an electrician, he brings things home from remodeling jobs. He brought home 12 big panels of frosted glass not too long ago. They look like old shower doors. I think they'd be perfect for the greenhouse. Thank you for sharing your greenhouse project with us! It gives me hope that I'll have mine finished some time in the near future. Very inspirational!
