DIY Greenhouse Build – Part 2

DIY Greenhouse Build - Part 2

Continuing with the greenhouse build, I discuss the style of greenhouse I chose as well as show how I assemble the ribs. I chose the gambrel style over a hoop style simply because I like the look better. Each rib is fashioned out of 3 each, 3/4″ EMT that I picked up from a local big box store. I also picked up 1″ EMT that I used for the rib anchors (1st video) and to make couplers to join the sections of each piece of the rib. Self-tapping screws make assembly a snap. To protect the plastic that will cover the rib’s couplers, I used duct tape to smooth out the joins. At the end of the video, I threw in some mistakes just for fun. Let me know what you think and surely feel free to throw some advice my way.

Hydroponic Gardening & More with Brent


What do you think?


  1. As I was watching this Brent, it occurred to me that using a wooden dowel inside the EMT as a coupler would prevent the "lip" that is formed by using the 1" EMT outside. You could still use four screws each side and I would certainly still wrap the joint with duct tape. Since the dowel inside the pipe would not be exposed to rain, weather, etc., it should not deteriorate. Did you ever consider this approach and if so, why did you reject the idea?

  2. Brent: It takes a few trys to find out where to put the mark on the bender. Trial and error works best. Since I don't use mine very often I would have to think about it for a bit. It is a different story when you have perfect multiple bends that have to hit a wall, joist or rafter so you can secure it to a building. What are you going to use to bridge the top and the two sides? You are lucky you have a deck big enough to provide a large flat surface. Bernard
