Hey guys! So I thought I'd finally get on to posting my greenhouse I made. I decided to make one as I was sick of having to re-shore up my POS Bunning's one after heavy gales. So, staying true to my frugal traits, I was thinking "best size vs. cost analysis" for the build. Over here most lengths of timber are 4.8m long. I was thinking 2.4m, but for the area, it was a little too big. So I thought 1.6m lengths - that was I can get 3 cuts from one length. This method will suffice for the roof and flooring which will be assembled as solid pieces (if I have to move house). The floor is made from premium grade pine H4 150mm x 25mm that was left over from our house decking. Screwed down with stainless steel screws. The wall framing is also screwed, so I can disassemble it if need be. The framing is H3.2 rough sawn 75mm x 95mm all over. The grading of the roof slope is 2.2m sloping down to 2m at the rear. - I had to break away from the 1.6m for obvious reasons The roof is tinted UV resistant corrugated plastic. The walls, due to the cost of using plastic sheeting are only greenhouse plastic wrapping - 25m for $10 I think. I used a staple gun to apply it. Next is the shelving... Using L-brackets for shelving support. For the shelving I used H3.2 pine decking timber. 90mm x 20mm. The shelving will consist of 2 tiers. So... I am very pleased with it at this point As you can see I utilize all the horizontal space for shelving. Left over decking timber is used where I can I decided to use really bright Caribbean colours as a nice contrast, I think it's worked well.. The paint is a Resene High-gloss enamel for outdoor with extra anti-mold additive. The surface was primed, then sanded lightly with 180 grit, then 2x coats of top coat. And thus concludes my cactus abode of colour. Ha! Hope you enjoyed
