OFF GRID with DOUG and STACY: So now I am installing the TUFTEX panels on the sides of the greenhouse. TUFTEX PolyCarb corrugated panels are our toughest building panel. Made with a polycarbonate thermoplastic polymer in an octagonal-wave profile, TUFTEX PolyCarb corrugated panels are 20 times stronger than 5 oz. fiberglass corrugated panels and are designed to withstand a wide range of surface temperatures: 270° F to -40° F.
All TUFTEX PolyCarb panels are well suited to outdoor applications where light transmission is desired. TUFTEX PolyCarb panels are perfect for greenhouses, outdoor gardening structures, and sun porches.

OFF GRID with DOUG & STACY
Background music is atrocious!!!
Is there a way to make the sides open and close using this so if can also b used for high tunnel?
You had me the from moment I saw your beard in the thumbnail
Just found your video. Nice build. I am an old metal building installer. If your posts are uniform, and the panels are uniform you can stack the panels and predrill all the holes. That makes install much faster. You don't have to keep switching from driver to bit.
Sounds like your hammer drill setting is on Doug.
We have long winters where it can be 5-10 degrees daily for a few months. I would like to do this idea for my enclosed deck so we can sit out there in the winter. I'd like to be able to get the temperature up to the point where it is 70 degrees on my deck in the winter. How cold does it get where you are in the winter? How warm does it stay in your greenhouse in the winter?
Think I used a few for my steel shed I built would have used more but notice only about 10 warranty and the siding was 40 years.
I would hate to replace in 11 years.
Great build thanks, I love Menard too often go there
The hammer is for masonary
Maybe take your hammer drill off hammer
How many years can you get out of a tufftex panel? Some greenhouse plastic tarps can last up to 10 years.
Unsupported over 4 foot spans ???
Yeah, dont follow the instructions …..
Thank you for this video. May I ask you what is the thickness of these TUFTEX PolyCarb corrugated panels?
Maybe you could use construction adhesive to glue those foam spacers in place to make your job a little easier?
Hey Doug, How about doing a follow up on the TufTex panels for durability after 3 years?
You have got your drill on hammer setting ??????? all the same in the uk
hen photo bomb
Hello Doug…late to the game. I was wondering what your snowfall amount is and is the roof slanted? I just couldn't quite tell. Looking to build something similar but I am in Maine and def get snow
ok sooo this Video started out great ( Rooster and all being funny ok ) but now your putting on the panels ( ummm panels ) so now What ?? , your not telling how or what your doing.. and why ?? ( maybe we would like to no the size or how you started this project ( and what you used ) do we have to guess ??? ( why your using it and what are they called ( you cant call them just panels ( we are newbies ) and came to you for ( inspiration ) to how to and what not too doo) urg,
Dude take your drill off hammer mode you will find it easier 😀👍👍👍 nice work
How wide are the Tuftex panel ?
I wonder if you are promoting off grid why a screwgun? If you promote Dutch style living? You even look like one lol! Does your bishop know this? Everything I've seen looks good except the screwgun
Hi Doug. We are revisiting your tuftex green house build. It should last through our New Hampshire winters. After two years how has it fared? Anything different that you would have done? Our home is situated in the woods, with enough cleared land around the house for a green house and some raised beds.
How is the Tuftex holding up? Been planning on building a lumber framed house past few years and worried about durability of the thinner panels. Thanks!
I wouldnt use clear….. To much heat!!
Use translucent or green
I put those panels on the roof of my greenhouse last year, this year they ripped like paper in high winds. So brittle ,I had to replace half of them. Not only did they blow away,but the ones that were still tied had big random holes. Really dissappointed with the quality. They don't seem to weather well. I want to replace all of them next year, but still researching a strong material. I am in new England btw. Based on my experience I will not recommend these panels at all.
