I would like to build a greenhouse due to I think it will be cheaper and more fun if I do it myself. How would one go about building the cheapest, most efficient greenhouse?

Sorry. Cheapest doesn't provide any parameters. I researched a lot and finally settled on a Palram kit as the cheapest option for me. But then I don't have a lot of woodworking skills.

After considering the MANY options "out there" and watching a wheel barrow load of greenhouse construction YouTube videos, we decided on the Harbor Freight 10x12 greenhouse.....then we waited until we received, via email, a 20% off one item coupon. we saved $160.....bringing the final cost down to less than $450.

I too considered a Harbor Freight because I am only an hour from the border but all of the reviews made me worry. I hope all goes well with yours @David from Dothan :) Do let us know and show us your progress (y)

Lori, the bad reviews, it seems now that I have it up, appears to have been experienced because of poor foundation, anchoring and put-together skills (can't take shortcuts). Our's has already gone through some strong winds and storms with absolutely NO issues.
