Every gardener at one time or another has thought about having a greenhouse to start seeds and grow plants.
Someone with a large budget could have a greenhouse construction company build one, many of us don’t have those kinds of funds to use.
A prefabricated kit is another way to go. Even these can be prohibitively expensive for the average gardener.
While going through may files the other day I came across a set of plans for a small greenhouse. It measures eight and a half feet wide by 12 feet long and is seven feet tall in the center. It uses one-quarter inch treated plywood ripped into strips that are glued together to form the sidewall supports. The base is made from one by eight boards. The entire structure is covered in plastic sheeting.
This set of drawing was developed by Michigan State University and the Department of Agriculture in 1963. Anyone who has moderate building skills should have no problem building it.
If you would like to take a look at these plans you can see them on my other website.
Please let me know if you do decide to build this greenhouse, I would be interested in how it turned out.
