DIY Cheap Greenhouse
This DIY Cheap Greenhouse post shows you how to build a very cost effective greenhouse that is very sturdy and quick to put together. The greenhouse in this post/video was put together in about a half day at a permaculture design course (PDC) that I was at this past fall.
The actual spend on the project shown was about $180.00. We did have some donated parts like the plastic film and rope. If we bought everything the cost would have been $230.00.
This greenhouse is designed to be portable. It is built on 2×4 sleds and has a rope connected to the front. We actually built the greenhouse shown here in the back yard, about 50 feet away from where it currently sits. We dragged it over to where it is at now. Two of us easily moved it over and it could have been moved by one person.
The original design was first published by TexasPrepper2 and the design specs are on Amazon sold by Homestead Advisor. Here is a link: https://amzn.to/2JCOAzF

Thank u! Needed greenhouse to dry painted wood projects sans ants/bugs/bird poop!
Very cool. Thank you.
Awesome! And expandable! Love this!
What is the name of the plastic! Great project, looks great! Thank you
That'd be a good autoflower house. 4 plants no prob👍 would need a little modification though.
I love this. Hopefully my husband can make this💕
Cattle panels. Hope your not keeping cows in them
Two people where do you get those

Amazing I’m gonna try the same what grade is the plastic (thickness)?and could you link the cattle wire I’m unsure what kind of wire that is here in the uk? Thank you!
or you can get this greenhouse from amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B084M2V98L/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=murph1018-20&camp=1789&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=B084M2V98L&linkId=62bdac3d623bc95778b85776ccc66c32
I'm curious about the life of the plastic cover. I've built one with visqueen before and after about 3 months the sun caused it to crack and split and then the wind finished it off.
I would have liked to see it being built. Are the slides pressure treated wood ? good video thanks
Nice job! Btw, theres no ‘t’ in ‘across’
Wow amazing thank you for sharing
Think this setup would be good for North Texas winters if I put a heater in there?
Wow this is a really smart design!
What about at night when temps drop? is there a way to hold the heat?
I made it by myself thanks to woodprix plans. I think it's the best way to learn how to build that.
I would improvise the support structure on the sides by adding a couple more beams to make it a little less flimsy.

Very nice!! How would you attach the plastic outside bottom on the sides on the wood? Stables, nails? Then put another smaller board over to help hold? Maybe I just answered my own question. Thanks!!
I have a thing for polytunnels. I keep watching Polytunnel videos.
Living in windy Alberta, I hope it stands up. Love this one and it makes due for sure, with the cost of it. Thank you so much.
Takes 2 people?? Bruh.
its cool but looks super humid.
what was the length of the cattle panels please
Looks like TexasPrepper2's design. He shows you how to build one in this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DKlXs8iov0
If you view my YouTube channel you will see the green house put up 7.t × 7.h × 15.w
What type of plastic is it
Nice. I like the fence wire. Makes it sterdy.
