Here is a link to a greenhouse design that I found and used to build my greenhouse. Mine is 22'x32' out of construction cleanup recycled lumber.

The harbor freight gh 10x12 is currently under consideration by me. the reviews talk about the plastic blowing off. I did buy a 12x20 from Amazon. it withstood a wind storm in Tucson. If anyone buys this one, I will be happy to give you some tips to building it alone, one person.

good looking greenhouse design, if i can figure out how to build it 30ft wide, i might try it

If you reside in colder areas may want of consider an efficient one such as

are they using plexi glass on the roof?

Jon,

Great reading.

Thank you

Hey carl, i really like your design. Was thinking of only building half of it. I have a large brick wall to bolt the top connection to. I was just wondering how tall it is and if all the 2x4s can be cut to 4ft or do i need to make the top the 7ft 2in like in the details. Idk if itll make a difference or if i would have to change the angle of the cut on the top 2x4?

I used this design as well, here's my progress (attached Pics). I have a friend who works with autocad and worked up the measurements for me.

Note to self ... paint before putting up :)

Hi, Stan, I like your greenhouse and the price!  I am beginning to build a 10x12 HFGH in Brentwood, just outside of Nashville, using old bathtubs for my tanks and beds. My main concern is cooling/ventilating it this summer. What do you use? Fans? Shade cloth--both?

Where did you get your grow media or fish?

Thanks for any tips!

If you build a PVC hoop house you will need to primer the pipe where it comes in contact with the poly cover. Thats the only way that most suppliers will warranty poly.

Mother Earth News just published plans for a low cost High Tunnel. This seems to be on the upper end of the strength scale for a PVC ribbed High Tunnel and it costs under $1000.

Our 14x90 foot High Tunnel earned us 3x what we paid for it during this year, almost half of that after the first frost killed everything outside. We could have done much better if we had of had the time to fully plant it out properly.
