How To BUILD a GREENHOUSE from Scratch, DIY!

How To BUILD a GREENHOUSE from Scratch, DIY!

In this episode, we purchase a ton of lumber, get some TUFTEX polycarbonate panels (Lowes) and use our Google Sketchup design to build a greenhouse from the ground up for our homestead- DIY style! The entire family pitches in (including the goats) and you have to see how it turns out!

The Tuftex Polycarbonate Panels I’m going to use in this video were given to me by their manufacturers.

  1. bro you got everything else just break down a by a paslode framing nailer. also if your nails arent countersinking turn up the pressure on your compressor. ps great build

  2. I’ve been looking at kits, but this has made me rethink that plan. Mine will function as more of a conservatory than a greenhouse, but they’re nearly synonymous, structurally.

  3. Do you have the plans to this greenhouse? This is perfect for what I need!!! My brother is the handy man as long as I hand him the dimensions he will build it lol

  4. The subtle Wranglerstar call out there in regards to the sideways panels. I've always thought the same thing. I think I would have stuck to a higher knee wall though, for me personally, but love the design and the detail of the video!

  5. Epic editing skills it really makes this video next level. I am currently designing my greenhouse on Sketchup as well and thank you for the quality info. Really helps me to make sure i've done everything correctly.

  6. Absolutely "B E A U T I F U L"!!!!! A lot of love by all of you went into building that green house. Question: are you going to cover the door with temporary plastic wrap of some sort for winter so the plants don't freeze?
