Last year when we built our Texas Prepper Greenhouse I sort of cheaped out on the plastic and boy did we pay the price for it. By August the skin was in tatters, by the middle of October it was all over my garden area. What a mess! Yup, I got the 3 mil that they had at our local farm store even though the instructions said to get the 6 mil. If you build this greenhouse GET THE 6 mil.
This is the stuff that you want. You can get it right here on Amazon from Warp Brothers.
While we were at it we decided to replace some of the foam pipe insulation that was damaged after the plastic came off. We also added a piece where the cattle panels come together in the middle.
One of the main things to get right is making sure the plastic is on straight. If not you will end up not having enough to pull it tight when it comes time to staple it in place.
Once it’s all in and stapled you have to screw furring strips over the staples. This step may not be absolutely necessary but it sure helps to keep it from pulling out when the wind blows like it is tonight and we are just getting started on our wind allotment for 2014.
We had some help from Fish Taco, he really helped out. Six hands are always better than four.
There she is all skinned out. We trimmed that excess plastic off of the bottom but I failed to get a picture of that.
One more shot of it. I am so glad we had a day like today to work on it. It makes the prospect of starting those seeds that much more exciting. It won’t be long now!
The video that started it all.
He is charging for the plans now but they are very economical. Go support him he puts out good info.
Well, that’s about all I got, take it easy.
