Home-Built Low-Cost Mini Greenhouse
I built a low-cost mini greenhouse right on the side of my house. First I bought 4 vinyl windows from a local manufacturer for $10 apiece. Then I figured out a way to fabricate the windows together as a 1-piece unit in my shop, without having to do any framing work. I glued or screwed all the windows together as a unit and then used a piece of 3/4-in. plywood for the floor.
    Then I went outside and cut a hole in the side of the house and framed in a 2 by 6-ft. opening with a header. I used a loader tractor to lift the 1-piece window unit up into the opening and then nailed it in place. (Wess Cornelius, 1312 Ferrier Rd., Winlock, Wash. 98596 ph 360 785-4178)
