    I appreciate your intentions to help with greenhouse plans, but really these are
    pictures with little or no details- there are no plans attached.
    Would you mind changing your page to include plans ??
    I am most interested in the first design showing the 1. HOOP Style greenhouse;
    but would like to see more explanations of the plans.
    Such as : -where to put the rebar ? – what are ‘hoop stands’? – a ‘lathe’ in english is a machine, what do you mean ? – put ‘pvc’ at the top ??
    I know you mean to help, but explanations are supposed to answer questions, and not raise more questions if everything is explained correctly.
    Thank you for your time?
    I hope you can answer my questions, you have a good design shown in # 1. above.

      A lathe is also a name for a thin wood strip also called a fir’n strip ( for its use in tanning hides ) but that’s more useless information for you on that set up you need a 1/2 in drill bit for wood and pvc pipe i used 2 – 8′ per hoop with a T coupler or a 4way coupler X= as many as you want.

        No, that’s lath. Lathe and lath are two very different things.

    Great list of plans man, I have been in this industry and teaching people to build greenhouses, and recommending resources such as the one’s above, for over 6 year’s now.

    I have to say, that this is a top notch post, and you did a really good job of showing how people can make some extremely unique greenhouse models and styles.

    Keep up the good work, and I will continue to read you’re blog, I enjoyed this one very much. I’d love to write for you, or allow you to write on one of our many highly popular greenhouse and gardening website’s, I promise that you’d be interested in getting you’re name out there, through our 10+ year established network.

    Talk to you soon, thanks.

    i like the one with the pvc pipes that you put into the ground. im going to build one soon on my smallholding. I was wondering if it will be strong enough to withstand strong winds?

    Even though they are a bit more expensive than vinyl wraps and glass, pvc panels are an excellent solution for building greenhouses. They’re incredibly resistant to damage, fire and weather, making them a tremendous investment for your greenhouse hobby.

    LOL, the old PVC greenhouse. Conceptually fun and well meaning “designers”, however PVC is not UV protected so a greenhouse of this kind of construction will only last a couple of years, hardly worth the effort or expense. Build it right, once.
