Building a PVC greenhouse.(FINISHED)
    #679251 - 07/26/13 03:48 AM (3 years, 5 months ago)

So a few weeks ago I decided I want to build a greenhouse but one that is within my budget.  After browsing for few blueprints on the internet. I decided on using this guys plan.



I also plan on doing a few modifications like1/2 inch PVC instead of 1 inch, dual zipper pull up door,large zip ties instead of clips,no windows, and 4 Velcro  "vents"  on the top (2 on each side) and also some concrete anchors.

All in all it's gonna cost me around 80 dollars for the dimensions I am using for the PVC parts and 6 mil plastic and other accessorys. I plan on buying the more expensive greenhouse 6 mil next time as it last for 4 years.

also, check out usplastic.com for their furniture PVC fittings, you might be able to save some money getting the right fittings instead of piecing corners together with T's and L's--the largest expense when building out of PVC.

They also have furniture grade pvc as well, but not sure if its worth the extra $$.

Thanks for the links but for the area I am using the "hoop" design wouldn't work well.

So I picked up the PVC today from lowes. So far it looks like it will cost me 100 to build this.

Also the area I am using is a 10x10.



Edit: Forgot to mention I am using 1 inch instead of 1/2 inch.

Any particular reason you made it A-framed instead of rounded?

This is inspiring me to build one in my backyard now. What are you planning on growing? You going to grow through winter?

I plan on growing some MJ of course :stoned:. But also some tomatoes and herbs as well. Thought about growing  some blueberry too. And yeah I plan on growing in the winter as the coldest it gets here at night is like 35 and I could always add a heater with a thermostat and or supplemental lighting.


Edit: I also suggest getting the greenhouse film instead of construction plastic if you can. As it last much longer since construction plastic is meant to break up in landfills and only last one year if you're lucky.

Bad ass. I haven't looked into greenhouse at all I'll need to read up on the subject. Winter is fairly mild here too I can easily get away with a nice all around greenhouse with I'm sure little investment more than just the structure.

When building with PVC all you really need is PVC cement and a Hacksaw or PVC cutter. I would also suggest in getting some greenhouse poly since it will last much longer(4-6 years) then the construction ones you see at lowes or HD. I'll be lucky if this cheap 4 mil will last a year.
