Build a functional and cost-effective GREEN HOUSE by spending under 150$ only. Check out this DIY!
I grew up living next to my grandparents and spent many days working side by side, starting seeds and transplanting plants, with my grandfather in his greenhouse. It was an enough good size with a stone foundation and glass panels. It was attached to his garage which had a furnace to heat the garage and greenhouse and had running water and electricity. I have many fond memories of spending afternoons with my grandfather in his greenhouse.
Now that I am older I often dreamt of having my greenhouse so I could start seedlings in the spring, extend the season in the fall and possibly relive some of those childhood memories. For several years I looked into purchasing a kit but was discouraged by the high prices and cheap plastic panels they came with, so I decided to do some research and design and build my own.
Three years ago, after spending countless hours deciding what size to build, what materials to use and what accessories to add, I finally built my greenhouse.
My original plan was to build the greenhouse out of cedar, but because this was my first attempt I didn’t want to invest too much into something that might not be exactly what I wanted, so I decided to use pine 2 x 3’s for the framing and 6 mil greenhouse plastic for the covering. The entire cost for the 6′-10″ x 8′ greenhouse the was less than $150.00 including all the hardware.
