      Talking Greenhouse build #2.

      I know, I have not finished the first greenhouse. But it is so big it will be too hard to heat for the early plants. So I am building a smaller one!

      It is 12'W 24'L 11'H, the sides and North end will be covered in dirt for insulation.
      This is were I got after a days work on it, my brother spent most of the day on the loader hauling dirt over, which was a big help!

      Looks great! How do you attach the pvc to the boards? Is it just a hole drilled in the horizontal facing board?

      I drilled holes in the facing board, and cut 6" pieces of steel electrical and put in the holes, then the PVC pipe slips over it. I will take some pictures once the weather clears up!

      Well spent the day working on "Greenhouse #2" and another day of work and it's done!
      Didn't get a chance to take pictures so I will take some tomorrow.

      All that's left is a door and some makeshift benches, and I also need to finish putting the dirt around it, but that's easy!

      You'll enjoy growing your plants in that. Does the triangle open up on the opposite end from the door for venting?

      Sure it is, it's not like I came up 4" short on tarp and have not had a chance to fix it...... Because that would be dumb!

      I forgot, my out of pocket cost was around $140. But I already had the greenhouse film on hand, and the lumber is all used!

      I used 1 1/2", I should have used SCH40, but I used the thinner stuff I was low on money. If you do this I would say to use the SCH40, it's much heaver.

      If you have any other questions just ask!

      I forgot, if any of you do want to use PVC on a greenhouse, the PVC pipe must be covered! Any contact between the film and PVC will distroy the UV protector on the plastic film causing the film to rot very quickly!!!

      I got the rest of the dirt around the greenhouse, and I got the door up!

      I still need to put up benches on the other wall.
