See how to build this fantastic greenhouse for around 50 bucks or less if you can use your head!

I live in Nebraska, so that means the last frost and cold evening may come well after may… That’s why I am going to build this myself this year. It’s very simple to build and with a little begging, stealing and borrowing I think I can get the total cost to pretty much 0… (I don’t condone stealing, I am taking from my father in law who said it was OK, so technically it isn’t stealing lol)

What you will need!

Each      Qty    Total
$4. 23   6        $25.38           20′ x 3/4″ PVC schedule 40 plumbing pipe
$6.70    6        $40.20           1x6x8′ pt – ripped into 1x3s
$4.99    4        $19.96           8′ steel “T” fence post
$2.18    3        $6.54             2×4 stud – rip into 1x2s
$3.97    2        $7.94             1x4x12′ pt
$5.73    1        $5.73             2x4x16′ rip into 2x2s
$7.91    1        $7.91             20′x1/2″ re-bar – cut into 18′ lengths
$4.88    .75     $3.66             8″ nylon wire ties – 100
$5.47    .5       $2.74             1 1/4″ x 1lb drywall screws
$6.97    .3       $2.09             16 gauge galvanized utility wire – 200′ – for X braces
$2.97    .25     $0.74             3/8″ t-50 staples – 1000
$79.00  .22     $17.38           20′ x 100′ x 6 mil clear plastic

OK, so this totals up to more than $50 but like I said earlier… use your head, look on craigslist, free-cycle and your local classifieds, even consider dumpster diving 🙂 It’s fun, I promise 😛 Get the plans and more info and build your own ….
