Do-It-Yourself Greenhouse
"This is the best little home-built greenhouse around," says Harry Day, Spokane, Wash. "What makes the 12 by 12-ft. structure different is the strength of wood and the way I attach the 20-ft. long, 3/4-in. dia. pvc ĉhoops' to the 2 by 6's that run down each side.
  "I made the end caps out of wafer board by bending a piece of pipe into a half circle and laying it across three 4 by 8 sheets, which I cut into an arc. Then I cut out squares under the arc for a door and for openings covered by plastic.
  "Four 12-ft. 2 by 6's run around the base and a 2 by 4 runs from end to end down the top center, with braces down the wood ends. I also ran a couple 2 by 2 braces down each side, screwed to the pvc pipe with sheetrock screws.
  "To attach the pvc hoops, I screwed pvc end caps to the 2 by 6's along each side û spaced about 2 ft. apart - and then glued the ends of the pipes into the caps. Holds them very securely and is simple."
