Making an Indoor Greenhouse

I have a large area in my basement that still has a dirt floor. I would like to experiment with an indoor green house. Any ideas on this?

Sorry, but my opinion is don't. Spiders get everywhere. I know, because my aunt has one.

Go for it! I built a double platform using 2X4's and a sheet of plywood cut in half; 1/2 sheet for each platform. I have fluorescent lights on chains that can be raised & lowered according to plant height. It is important to keep the lights close together (I have five 4 ft. lights on each level) and also close to the plants. The lights also create some heat so keep this in mind. You don't want a room too hot but you don't want it too cold either. Also, do you have mice since you have a dirt floor? It's okay if you do but you will need to set your platform up on metal coffee cans so that the mice cannot get to your plants. They will literally mow them down once they start growing.
