« Part 5: Its coming along Part 6 of Greenhouse series Part 7: Another late one (lots-o- pics) »

I started by drilling holes through the top plate of the walls. When we install the roof I will redrill the holes through the roof frame so that I can bolt it all together.

We unrolled the poly around the greenhouse and cut it. We then unfolded it and started attaching. Here I am marking it with a Sharpie so that we will have 6’ overlap on the top plate.

Going around the sides. This is definitely a 2 person job. DW has taken a break to take a pic. I’m marking again.

Here is an inside pic.

That 6” that I marked, here I am folding it over the top plate and stapling to the inside.

More stapling. That is a spring clamp to my right temporarily holding up the poly.

Here it is almost all installed.

Another view from the garage deck. DW is going to cut off the excess at the bottom.

Not really sure what I am doing in this one. Oh . . . I remember. I’m installing 3/8 x ¾ strips of pine sandwiching the poly between it and the frame. There was no way the 3/8 staples will hold the plastic so I ripped some D4S pine. I’m using 1 ¼ brads shot on an angle.

This is a better shot.

Me with a goofy smile and DW taking a pic from the second floor of the house.

Pretty much done here. Some additional trim work to do.

Now that looks more like a greenhouse. :) This is coming together nicely, Zuki.

I am just curious if you are going to add any way to ventilate the greenhouse to get rid of excess heat build-up?

did you use greenhouse film or regular plastic? regular plastic from the big box store will not last very long. greenhouse film will last up to 5 years. great looking greenhouse. our first greenhouse was about that big, now e have 6000 sq. ft of greenhouses. good luck and happy growing.

Scott – vents are in the roof

Jerry – regular Big box plastic. Greenhouse plastic is 4x the price. I built a couple of cold frames 3 years ago with ‘regular” plastic and they are holding up. Fingers crossed. :-)

Cheers
