I am very happy to report the build is done! I started the build on February 2, 2016, nearly a year ago. I have big plans for this greenhouse. I’m hoping to work on some of my breeding projects and get some great food for Gina and I at all times of the year including the dead of winter and the dead of summer.

Hydroponic Gardening & More with Brent
Brent, Greenhouse looks real good. As a suggestion you may consider, and what I did in my greenhouse, is to take and place 1/8" x 1" washers on your 2×4 studs and use magnets to hold the plastic in place. Then as it warms up you can easily take the plastic down, and in the summer as it gets hot you can put shade cloth up in its place to keep the temps down inside. Saves time on putting fir strips up and taking them down.
Looks great Brent. Looking forward to some more videos of you growing.
Nice thorough build. Are you sure you'll get enough light on the upper level buckets? I may have missed it but is the exhaust fan hooked up to a thermostat?
Nice and white! how much paint did it take, You could grow lettuce on the top in another gutter using it as a DWC. Just a suggestion.
Thanks for all the great videos Brent. This is my first time making a comment, but I have watched most of your videos and enjoyed them all. I'm always looking for the next one.
I'm interested to see how things grow in the winter. The room looks good.
Im very interested in your heated Greenhouse because i plan to build one myself but as a classical greenhouse with a clear roof.
I think the air inlet should be about 1,5 times bigger than the outlet (im speaking about area).
If you put a filter/insect netting on it i would suggest to go more like 2 times because the filter reduces the Airflow even more.
Plus you will have to clean/change the netting/filter less often.
Also im concerned the humidity from the greenhouse might stay in the room where you blow it and either cause mold or get sucked right back in.
If you want to save money on heating maybe you can find some air to air heat exchanger where you can extract the heat from the outgoing air into the fresh air.
Turned out good! Can't wait to see how well it performs!
I'm New and just subscribed 🙂
Do you happen to have a link to that fan on Amazon?
Great video Brent, I was thinking about your heating in the greenhouse.I thought you might want to check out some of downspout & soup can solar collectors vids on youtube.Maybe you can put together something to supliment your heating so you don't need to use the elctric heater.
Very well done Sir!
Hi Brent,Finished in time. So temps up to 80F. What summer crops are you going to grow? Will you keep an energy log on the green house, to see how much electricity it uses? Cheers, Bill
Looks like it is time to plant now. Best wishes Bob.
Nice to see it all come together. Can't wait to see what you do with it. I think that air barrier with the double plastic should work great.
Love it, Love it, Love it!!! Ok, one suggestion, and this is only if you have not made a place for this already. I think I would have to put a narrow table/cabinet under the cabinet with the mirrors, for your "chemicals" and as a workbench, tool storage etc. and if you will be starting seeds in there, I would also make room for some seeds in the table too. Last, I would suggest you move that wood that the fan is blowing on, before you get that humidity in it, and watch for water on that side too. I doubt that you will have a problem with that, but it doesn't hurt to check it before it has time to get things damp in there. I am so happy to see the great job you have done. I was floored when I saw each step, and how fantastic it turned out. I am loving that flooring too. You really do have a talent for doing things right. Boy is it ever nice to see someone do something, when they take pride in their work. It makes such a huge difference. Now I'm green with envy. I bet that's going to be a true GEM for you, and can you imagine, veggies in Winter!!!! Woo Hooo!! Now you have to hurry and tell us what your going to plant, I bet you have changed it a few times by now. Fantastic Video. Bless, Sheila PS I hat eot admit this, but I did laugh hard at your joke.
