Greenhouse is 10×12 ft, the largest that I could build without a local construction permit. The wood part is 100 percent western red cedar. I built it as a kind of takeoff from one of Norm’s plans but with a lot of variation. The Plastic covering is triple wall polycarbonate. It gets very warm on sunny days, therefore the green fabric cover on part of the roof. Future goal is to run water and electricity out to it and maybe put a solar powered fan in one of the roof vents.

Great looking Greenhouse ~ I especially love the stacked stone. I’m sure if the local government knew you were putting up such a fine looking structure, they’d have been ok with a bigger one! Congratulations on a job well done.

All the compliments are well deserved. This is among the nicer greenhouses I have seen.

What did you use for the translucent panels?
