Building a small greenhouse

If you want to spend quality time in your garden and to supply your family with fresh vegetables, the only way to satisfy these needs is to build a small greenhouse. If you have a large backyard, the beast thing to do is to make a greenhouse with gable roof. Moreover, make sure the roof has a slop of at least 30 degrees. In this manner, the roof will drain the water properly, but it will also keep the air at a proper temperature. Building a small greenhouse won’t cost a lot and the invest will pay off in less than a year, if properly used.

Small Greenhouse PlansWork with great attention and with good judgement, as you need to plan everything from the very beginning. If you choose the wrong plans for your needs and for the configuration of the garden, you will not only waste your money, but you will also occupy the land with a useless construction. Make the structure of the small greenhouse using 2×4 lumber, as the boards are durable and strong enough to support the weight of the whole structure.

Drill pilot holes trough the components before driving in the screws, otherwise the wood might split. On the other hand, don’t forget to plumb the posts with a spirit level and to make sure they are right angled, if you want to get a proper result. Building the door of the greenhouse is an easy task, as you just need to make a frame out of 2×4 lumber and attach it to the greenhouse with several hinges. Alternatively, you could use shed plans free to build storage space for your needs.

Last but not lest, cover the greenhouse with polyethylene film and secure into place by securing small pieces of lumber to the outside of the film into the rafters. Make sure you stretch the film properly, otherwise it will damage over time. There are many plans and tools you could choose from, so make sure you study the alternatives and take the best decision for your needs.
