Oooo..I need a link for that yard jewelry! And answer a question for me please, do you place the greenhouse at a certain orientation to the east-west angles of the sun in consideration of the side panels or something? I assume if overheating is a worse problem in your area you would align it to reduce sun and in snow areas perhaps the opposite?

It’s the climapod virtue :)It is facing north, the louver made it cooler plus the solar fan.. a tad warmer inside..

I was looking into building a greenhouse at one time. I like how the plastic panels curve on that one. I was pricing the polycarbonate greenhouse panels......holy smokes those things are high!

I built a 14' X 14' Hoop House using 2 ea 10 ft. PVC lengths per hoop. I built using the 1st layer of 6 mil plastic, the 2nd layer of 1" fiber mesh and the 3rd layer of another 6 mil plastic covering. Ends were made from plywood and 2"X4" studs and plywood door. Not too bad of a build, however, it was not used much for the purpose it was built for. I wanted to have an aquaponics setup which never came to fruition, but I did use it to start some of my plants. Then it was taken over by several bags of fertilizers, soil amendments, boxes of coconut coir, fruit tree fertilizers, and various other artifacts of gardening.

It was still worth the effort of doing my own. I laid everything out full scale on paper and then started hammering and screwing the ends together. Once those were up and the hoops in place along the 4" X 4" bottom frame I had friends and relatives over for afternoon "tea" to do the covering. The filling of all the chemicals was all on my back! :)

Thanks Gail, Yes, mostly succulents and cactus and some carivorous plants. We had some 50MPH wind last week and it survived fine, one tree in front of my house did not :D . It was so strong that I found my sneakers in the yard from my deck.
