  1. Me and my pops built one12 foot high to the peak 30 feet long and 20 feet wide.And I recommend instead of using that plastic PVC because that stuff Bens and bows we used 1 inch and then also in some spots inch and a quarter pipe either EMT or fence piping and they made it really strong but hey whatever works for you

  2. Use compost inside the greenhouse for free heat. I bought mine with Colorado snow load and wind for about 1200. It did not hold up to the wind even with the extra screw downs. We will be changing things for next year. Ty for your ideas.

  3. Dang, I should have posted a video about how to strengthen plastic pipe for a Hoop House. Basically, I first put a chain link fence top tail/tube inside a slightly larger plastic PVC pipe, then bent the pipe on a jig to control the curve. The double pipe combo does spring back a bit after removing it from the wooden jig, but the (eco friendly) pressure treated wood frame of the Hoop House ensures the shape is consistent the full length of the green house. The key is the chain link fencing top rail is galvanized and bends easy enough to make the task doable for most builders. The PVC pipe that fits over it does need to be UV resistant and there are a number of paints made for plastic chairs and such that helps improve the UV resistance. It is a good idea to add a foam/wool strip on the PVC pipe before placing the plastic sheeting since it helps avoid a few issues that can develop due to sun/wind wear and normally that means a strip of wool often used as insulation. The softer the wool strip, the better. As to the plastic sheeting skin, I like the stiffer plastic sheet that can be had as a double, corrugated sheet used on many commercial greenhouse kits. Some of those sheets have a milk jug color, stated as translucent, and others come clear, or with a slight tint.

  4. Composting in one area will surprisingly add heat, too. Some have put nesting boxes along one side and put their chickens over winter and they help prepare the soil.

  5. Maybe check out livingtraditionshomestead, they have 2 16×32, and they actually use it to grow in fall, and winter and they use 1 for starting all their seeds for garden , from house to greenhouse to ground, I like both of yours, I think you both have some great ideas..

  6. Just watched this video, haven't read all the comments, so I'm not sure if anyone mentioned this. The only thing holding up your center cross brace that ties into your end wall are the nails holding up your six inch side wall support. You need vertical wood supports that actually hold up the cross brace. The weight of your center support could weaken those nails/screws over time. You should take out your door and reframe that section or you risk the collapse of your side wall support. Great idea in your build but you have a major flaw that could injure you or someone else.

  7. If you dig a good sized shaft down to at least 8 to 10 feet below ground level in your greenhouse, where the soil is at your yearly average temperature? The cold air from inside the plastic cover will fall into that shaft and displace relatively warm, below frost line temperature air up into the greenhouse. No fans, no fuel. You will need to ballance shaft square foot of area to your climate and degree of insulation.

  8. You call that a lot of snow? Lol. I'm needing to build Alpine A frame ceiling greenhouse for average snowfall of four or 6 ft and alot is over ten or 20 ft 🙁
