I spent a good part of the Summer building my Greenhouse, it is modeled after one I saw online at Ana White’s website. I made changes to the original plan, which I think were improvements. I am contemplating building another greenhouse, it will go along with the garden design which I have in mind.

My blog has detailed information on the making of the greenhouse.

I think it would be more work trying to make the doors fit the GH, I guess I will stick with the rigid material I have on the roof. I need to replace the vinyl I had used on the sides, the winter was just too rough for the vinyl.

It’s gonna be awhile before I can get out to the greenhouse. Also there is some rehabbing needed on the GH after such a severe winter as we have had.

I just came back from a long break away from this site. I see you did get the green house finished. It looks very nice and I also see you had some winter damage. I know you will get that resolved for the next season. I’m in Florida in a subdivision and they won’t allow a green house in our yard or I would build one just like yours.
Nice work Steve!

I replacing the vinyl with Suntuf rigid panels, like the ones on top of the roof. I will post updates as I get the new panels installed.

In the meantime, I am working on getting the garden going. We have a short season up here in Maine, so I must not tarry on getting the garden planted. For the garden I am setting up two more raised beds, that will give me 4 raised beds 4’ x 8’ (1.2 m x 2.4 m) and 32 square feet (2.97 square meters) of planting space for each raised bed. Ultimately, I will have 8 raised beds and the green house and a 2nd greenhouse/storage area, not sure what it will be yet.

Try used woodworking products and even glass door from caldwells.com, they are perfect fit for that type of green house.
