I am planning on building a greenhouse this spring/summer. In my mind's eye, I am seeing it built like a small pole barn or lean too, with galvanized barn panels on the bottom 35 inches, and the clear plastic panels from that point on up, with a ceder trim covering the point where those 2 materials come together. The roof will also be the clear rippled panels. I have not found a door yet that I like (thinking a screen door with glass panels that can be removed) and I will be putting a couple of vents in it as well.
I am planning on it being around 10 x 16 or possible 12 x 16 or 18.
I have not seen quite what I want on pinterest so was wondering if any of you have made one? If so, can you post some photos? Also looking for photos of your inside shelving.
A good part of my lumber for the framing (and possible shelving) will be recycle lumber (thanks to a tornado I have an ample surplus of that). Not sure if I want it on a concrete slab, or patio pavers or river rock.
Anyone want to share their experiences on a greenhouse with me?
My son built me a greenhouse years ago and it sounds similar to what you are thinking about although I believe you are still in the "planning" stage as to just what you are wanting to build. That is good as once built it is difficult to make major changes.
