Leave the piece that runs across the bottom of the door in place for now.  Once everything is set in place it will be easy to cut out with a hand saw.
This is the front side because it is all on one plane so that the plastic skin will lay flat on it. Cut the plastic out of the door opening - leave enough to fold double before stapling it to the frame. At this point it takes about 2 minutes to install the pvc pipes for the intermediate ribs - and the polytunnel takes shape. So I extended them with some scraps of PVC conduit that I had – I never throw anything away. This 2" PVC ridge on TOP of the frame keeps the plastic from sagging in snow or hard rain and prevents the structure from collapsing. Now roll the 2×2 under one complete turn so that the edge you stapled is facing up under the top layer of plastic sheet. I should have painted the PVC pipes with latex paint before applying the plastic sheeting – apparently this makes the poly sheet last longer, and maybe makes the frame pipes more resistant to UV.
Another PVC greenhouse – quite similar to mine but with a few differences that are very worth looking at.
I built the 50 dollar greenhouse, but it cost me more like $200, because I had to buy most of the materials new, I did save a lot of money on the plastic, I know a guy that has a couple commercial greenhouses, one collapsed last Winter under the weight of the snow, so he sold me enough plastic for my green house for $30. I found it easy to build, but made a few changes, I made mine 12 feet long, because I didn’t have enough room for a 15 foot greenhouse. I looked at the picture that shows how you used the thick plastic zip tie to secure the door frame to the the metal rods in the ground.
Most pre-built greenhouse you buy need to be assembled anyway, you’re really just paying hugely inflated prices for the material.


And don’t forget that you’ll certainly need water and possibly electricity,so plan accordingly. I looked around online to find the greenhouse that made the most sense to me as a handyman and woodworker, and for which I could spend the least amount of money. The plans are for a 12’ x 14’ greenhouse shaped like a Quonset hut made with PVC pipe for its frame, and covered with plastic film.
Another note to encourage you: Vicki and I worked together to get the frame base square and assembled, and to cover the PVC frame with its plastic sheeting. Lay out the PVC pieces as they will be assembled, then carefully glue and fit them together. The first one, in an attempt to save some cash, was buying what our local Lowe’s sells as greenhouse plastic. Now, halfway through the first winter after its first summer, our greenhouse is stripped to the bones, a PVC skeleton. When the weather begins to warm, we’ll put it in place and attach it using plastic clamps made specifically for the job. BTW, the gray PVC conduit is sunlight resistant unlike the white – although somewhat more expensive and is less expensive! One of my goals in building this polytunnel is to have something fresh coming out of the garden or greenhouse all year long. I also nailed lathes where the plastic was stapled on the outside to hold the plastic on better in high winds. It should go without saying that you want a piece of solid ground that’s relatively level and at least as large as the greenhouse base. Vicki, who’d long held a wish for her own greenhouse, said a footprint of about 10’ x 12’ would be good.


After just one summer, and as soon as the air got chilly, our plastic became so brittle that it split under the slightest pressure. I recently did what I should have done in the first place and ordered strong UV resistant plastic made specifically for greenhouses through an online source that specializes in this stuff. We’ll seal the bottom with tack strips instead of staples, and I plan to devise a misting system from PVC to keep our plants watered.
My only hope for a green house now is when it goes on sale , i’m ok to spend $150 for a ready to do greenhouse, and will ask my son to do the assembling and building for me. The front is all finished now,complete with plastic wrapping (bought myself a cheap staple gun set at bunnings in Launceston for 22.50 Aus currency). Orient the greenhouse so it sits lengthwise east to west (or for that matter, west to east). This is where a good measure of patience is called for as you and a co-worker get the cover in place, making sure there’s an equal amount of overhang on each side, folding over the ends — something like wrapping a very large, oddly shaped gift — and then fixing the cover in place. The plans suggest using staples to attach the plastic sheeting to the frame, but we found they tend to rip right through the plastic. I was just looking at your side structure now and will certainly implement some of that to complete making the greenhouse a lot stronger sturdier job.
